Crispix Puppy Chow

1 box crispy rice cereal
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 12-ounce package chocolate chips
2–3 cups powdered sugar

Mix peanut butter, butter, and chocolate chips in a medium-size bowl that is microwave safe. Microwave the mixture on high heat for 2 or 3 minutes. Stir through the mixture once and cook it till the mixture is totally melted and creamy.
Empty the box of cereal into another bowl and pour the melted mixture on top of the cereal. Stir it until the cereal is well-coated with the mixture.

Fill a plastic food bag with powdered sugar and add the well-coated cereal to the food bag. Shake it well until the cereal is coated with sugar. Spread the coated cereal onto waxed paper. When it is dry and well-cooled, it can be stored in tight containers.

1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 cup powdered sugar
6 cups Crispix cereal

You can assemble this delicacy in the wink of an eye! Put chocolate to melt on low heat, and make sure it is well-melted. Take the pan off the heat, and mix peanuts and peanut butter into the melted chocolate. Pour the mixture onto the cereal and stir until the cereal is well-coated with the mixture. Take powdered sugar in a big plastic bag, put in the cereal, and close the bag. Shake the bag gently until the contents are well-coated. This lip-smacking snack can be stored in the fridge in air-tight containers.
