Take 5 Muddy Buddies - total time 20 minutes

Probably the first thing I ever learned how to make myself was puppy chow.  Or muddy buddies if you prefer.  Both names are kind of weird.  I mean, puppy chow?  People think you are trying to feed them dog food.  And then muddy buddies... kind of like mud pies.  Why would mud be appetizing?

Puppy chow is so easy to make!  Just melt some chocolate, peanut butter, and butter on Chex cereal... shake in a paper bag... then add powdered sugar... done!  Once everyone gets over the name, they are scarfing down the chocolaty, peanut buttery goodness.  Tastes like childhood!

Fast forward to adulthood and sometimes you just want a snack that will take you back to simpler times.  This time we're adding caramel and pretzels to the mix... a little extra sweet and a little extra salty.  Yum!

14 oz box of Chex cereal
3 tbsp butter
.75 cup peanut butter
.75 cup caramel
.75 dark chocolate chip
1 cup pretzels, crushed
1 cup powdered sugar

1.  Melt peanut butter, butter, and chocolate in microwave or double boiler.
2.  Pour Chex cereal into a large mixing bowl or paper bag.  Pour chocolate, caramel, and peanut butter over the Chex and mix to incorporate.
3.  Add crushed pretzels and powdered sugar, mix some more, and enjoy!
