Puppy Chow, Monkey Munch, Muddy Buddies or...

Squishies?!! As if these things don't have enough names lol, my son came up with another one. I told him they are known by several names, and he didn't like any of them, so he decided on his own. I thought these would be a sure bet for a sweet treat I could make at home, but he didn't like them at first. Then after storing them in the fridge, he tried them again the next day and changed his mind! I am thrilled as he doesn't care for peanut butter on its own, so this is one of the first recipes he has liked with that as an ingredient!

Squishies!
Ingredients:

9 cups Rice Chex or Corn Chex
1 cup dairy free chocolate chips
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup butter flavor Earth Balance
1-2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1. Measure cereal and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and Earth Balance for 1 minute on high. Stir and then cook for 30 seconds longer or until smooth.
3. Add vanilla, then add the cereal, stirring until well coated.
4. Pour mixture into large Ziploc bag and add powdered sugar. Shake until well coated.
5. Spread on waxed paper to cool and store in Ziploc bags or large sealed bowl, in refrigerator if you think you would like them cold!
