Step 1: Let's Melt the Stuff

Mix the chocolate chips, butter and peanut butter in a glass bowl. Then put in the microwave until the chocolate is melted and the three mix well together. This should only take one to two minutes depending on your microwave.

Step 2: The Pantry Stuff

Now find stuff in your pantry. I used three kinds of cereal, pretzels, nuts, raisins. The pretzels I had were large so I broke them into smaller pieces. You don't need a lot of any just finish using what you have in a box. This is a great way to clean out your pantry and make a snack. It is also great to let your kids help. As you know anything is good with peanut butter and chocolate. Be creative.

Step 3: Shake It Up

Now pour the chocolate mixture over your pantry stuff. Mix well. Pour the powdered sugar in a new trash bag and shake it around in the bag. This will help coat the sides of the bag. (Do not use a scented trash bag) Now pour the chocolate and cereal mixture in the bag. Tie the top and shake well. The kids can help here. This will coat the mixture with powdered sugar. Pour into air tight container and eat. You can also put it in ziploc bags to take with you.

    What's the air-tight container for?

    Me and my boys used butterscotch chips in an iteration of this that we made last year. I think that batch lasted all of seven minutes.
