I damn near forgot to tell you guys about Monkey Munch. Eve and I are ADDICTED to Jon and Kate Plus 8 on TLC. It makes me feel rational and sane. Anyway, she (Kate) makes this for her kids...if you are from the South I've heard it called Puppy Chow. Eve and I prefer the name Monkey Munch...for obvious reasons. We made some tonight to take with us on the SuperFerry-Maui excursion. Here's the recipe...it rocks!
I will have you guys know that I'm becoming freaking Martha Stewart out here...I marinated our pork chops the other day (left the actual grilling to CRH) AND I made a Curry Chicken Salad for dinner one night...which not only did CRH eat the 1st time...he also ate the leftovers...unheard of here at the Hart house!
Ok, so here's the recipe...Eve loved helping...and it's sooooo easy!
9 cups Chex (or Crispix worked for us)
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
Put cereal in large bowl. Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Pour over Chex cereal, put into a large plastic bag with powdered sugar and shake well to coat.
Spread mixture evenly on wax paper and allow to cool.
