We reached 1,000 Twitter followers for work, so our office is having a little Friday Twitter party!

We are so sugared up right now.
Our staff is full of women, so we often have conversations about foods that we're craving. Just the other day, one girl was mentioning about how much she loves "puppy chow". By the end of the day, she also wanted guacamole and like five other things. Anyway, since we were celebrating, I could at least make one of those things!

I made as gluten-free as possible puppy chow. It's not really for dogs, but that's what we call the Chex(R) Muddy Buddies(R) here in Wisconsin!

Here is the recipe that I used:

9 cups Corn Chex (R)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup Skippy Natural peanut butter - Unilever brands are great at telling what has gluten ingredients in them. I aimed for gluten-free because we have some gluten-intolerant people on our staff.
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups-ish powdered sugar

Measure out the cereal and put in a big bowl. Melt the chocolate, pb and butter in a microwave safe dish. I wouldn't put it on any more than 30 seconds at first and then 10 seconds at a time to get this stuff to a mixable, smooth texture. Pour the chocolaty goodness over the cereal and mix well. It doesn't seem like there's enough, but just keep mixing. Once you've got that well-coated, put it either in a big brown paper bag or two 1-gallon sealable bags. Pour powdered sugar in the bag and seal and shake until everything looks like it's covered well with the sugar.
