Monkey Munch

Monkey Munch

9 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Put chex in a giant bowl with a lid and put aside. Place chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter into a microwavable container. Microwave the mixture uncovered for a minute on high. Stir the mix again and continue to zap in thirty second intervals until it mixes smoothly. Add the vanilla and stir. Pour this combination over your chex in the large bowl, put the lid on and shake! This is a great time to let the kids help out. Just make sure you get all of the cereal coated. Remove the lid, and add the powdered sugar, seal the bowl and shake again. Spread Monkey Munch out on wax paper to cool and dry. Or, do what I do and leave the bowl sitting on the counter without the lid. Walk by every few minutes and toss it gently until it is completely cool. Keep in an airtight container for storage.

Sit back and watch your little monkeys enjoy!
