Fun Retro Snacks - Julie & Julia Movie - Cooking

Julie & Julia the movie starts today. I can't cook, however, I can make a fun retro treat. Chex Muddy Buddies, recipe to follow. Great snack.

Chex Muddy Buddies. Yum.

Chex Muddy Buddies - from
9 cups Corn Chex®, Rice Chex®, Wheat Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Peanut butter and chocolate are a favorite flavor combo, but peanut butter lovers can substitute peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips to intensify that flavor.
