25 Days of Christmas: Day 5

This DEFINITELY is not a Christmas cookie recipe to share, but my gosh this Trash is good! No, really, it's called Trash...or Puppy Chow...or whatever other crazy name you can think of!

It's the perfect combination of sugar, chocolate and peanut butter, and it's so so addicting!

My sister and I love this, and when we'd both be at home for Christmas, you'd always catch us sneaking a handful of this every time we were down in the kitchen ;)

It's quick to make, so go get the ingredients now so you can make yourself some!

  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp. of vanilla
  • 9 cups of Chex cereal
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar  {This is what the recipe actually calls for, but based on last year's batch, I only used just over 2 cups.}

1. Combine peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.   

2. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir to blend all ingredients thoroughly.

3. Add vanilla, and stir well.

4. Place the 9 cups of Chex cereal in a large bowl.

5. Pour the peanut butter-chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss evenly, making sure all cereal gets a good covering.

6. Place the powdered sugar in a ziploc bag. {I used a gallon size, and put in 2 cups.}

7. Add the cereal mixture, leaving enough room to shake. {If you wanted, you could do this in several smaller batches.}

8. Shake the bag to fully coat the cereal with powdered sugar. I shook it really well, then added just a little bit more powdered sugar into the bag.

9. Pour in a serving bowl and ENJOY!!!
