Puppy Chow

1 - 14oz box Chex (corn or rice)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar, divided in half

Special Equipment 
2 gallon-sized Ziploc bags
Very large (at least 4 quart) mixing bowl

Pour cereal into very large mixing bowl, and set aside.
Place chocolate, peanut butter, and butter in a large microwavable bowl, microwave for 1 minute on high, then stir the mixture with a heatproof spoon or spatula until entirely melted and combined. (Alternatively, In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine chocolate, peanut butter, and butter. Heat the mixture, stirring constantly with a heatproof spoon or spatula).
Pour melted chocolate mixture over cereal in the large mixing bowl, and mix with a heatproof spoon or rubber spatula until all the cereal is coated with the chocolate mixture. Divide the cereal into two gallon-sized ziploc bags, and add half the powdered sugar to each (add more as desired). Seal the bags, and shake the mixtures until the powdered sugar evenly coats the cereal.
Open the bags and let the puppy chow cool completely.  It will keep for up to a week in an airtight container at room temperature.  But, we like to Freeze ours and it doesn't last a week, because my husband LOVES it and eats it all.
