Time for a recipe what with Easter coming and all. This one is compliments of my sister, Pam. I make this and spoon it into pretty cellophane bags, tie up with festive ribbon and give it as a treat for the kids (especially the big ones) or for a hostess gift.
6 cups Crispix (or store brand) cereal
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup butter
12 oz bag of chocolate chips
2 cups powdered sugar (may need a bit more than this)
Large paper sack
Melt peanut butter, butter, and chocolate chips together in microwave or on the stove. Stir into cereal. I put the cereal in my big yellow Tupperware salad bowl. Dump powdered sugar into paper sack. Scoop cereal into paper sack and shake until well coated. Warning – this is the messy part! But licking the spoon and eating the crunchy bits left in the bowl is acceptable and thigh friendly. Pam says she adds M & M's and the Easter pastels would be perfect for this time of year.
Spread on cookie sheets to dry out then spoon it into your containers. This makes a lot but it goes fast, too.
