Muddy Buddies

Bonus Recipe.  This recipe comes to you from the back of my Rice Chex box, and can also be found here.  My daughter wants to "cook" once a week, so this was her first pick.  She's 9.  I see a lot of snacky dessert things in our future.

9 cups Rice Chex®, Corn Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. (If you're awesome, like my kid, you do a conga line around the kitchen to shake the bag.) Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
