Back to desserts. I wanted to do something fairly easy. And I knew I'd have to make it on Sunday since the game was Monday night. So I decided to make white squares. You've probably heard it called puppy chow or muddie buddies or trash or monkey munch. Obviously it goes by several different names, but I decided to bring half to work where a co-worker officially named it "white squares." It's not something my mom ever made growing up. But I do remember other moms making it, and loving it, although I had no idea how to really make it.
I decided to follow this recipe, mainly because I liked that it added vanilla, which is something I hadn't seen anywhere else. Although I did make at least one change. It's surprisingly a simple recipe, but just in case you need a step by step guide...
9 cups (1 box) Chex (I actually wound up using an organic version, so anything similar works
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar (The original recipe called for 1 1/2. Obviously, I upped it.)
Place cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
Did you enjoy white square growing up? If so, what did you call them?
