This week, I decided to be adventurous. I decided that I was going to branch out and get more creative in every aspect of my life, from my own personal style to the way I organize my closet. One of the ways this manifested itself is through my grocery shopping and cooking experiments. I’m determined to be able to cook, bake, etc. by sight and with feeling, so this is the first of many (hopefully successful) attempts.
I started out small this week with my own take on a classic recipe: puppy chow. If you haven’t tried this yet, you need to. If you have, there is no doubt in my mind that you’re probably craving it as you read this. No worries. This quick and easy recipe is perfect for dorm life and yields a ridiculous amount of delectably sweet, crunchy deliciousness to munch and share.
What you need:
9 cups Chex Rice Cereal
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet are best)
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup butter
¼ teaspoon vanilla (optional)
What you do:
Melt the butter, peanut butter, and chocolate chips over medium heat in a saucepan. Mix them until they become a sauce. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla (optional—I completely forgot it and it still tastes amazing). Put Chex into a large bowl and pour the mixture over it. Stir gently until it is covered evenly. Put into a large Ziploc bag with powdered sugar, seal, and shake well to coat completely. Add sugar as needed, and allow to cool. Eat.
Now sit back, relax and enjoy!
