Puppy Chow

9 cups of Chex cereal (I prefer the cinnamon kind)

1 cup or 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter

1/4 cup of butter melted

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar

Measure cereal in large bowl. Set aside. Microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter for 1 minute on high. Stir. Cook for 30 seconds longer or until smooth. Add vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until coated. Pour mixture into large Ziploc bag and add powdered sugar. Shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in Ziploc bags or large sealed bowl. Recipe Note: It helps to add cereal mixture a little at a time if you only have small bags.
