My daughter (and son) love this stuff!! She requested we make it this weekend, and since it was her birthday weekend, I said of course!! We saw this on Jon and Kate plus 8 (seriously, my kids LOVE that show!), and it is YUM!
9 cups Chex cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c peanut butter
1/4 c butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c powdered sugar (I needed to use more like 2 cups)
Measure the cereal in a large bowl.
Place the chocolate, peanut butter, and butter in a microwavable bowl and cook uncovered on high for 1 minute. Stir, and cook for 30 more seconds. Stir until smooth. Add vanilla. Pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal and stir until well coated.Pour chocolate coated cereal into a 2 gallon ziploc bag.Add powdered sugar: start with 1 1/2 cups, but I needed more. Shake well until coated.Spread monkey munch onto wax paper and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
