Mmmmmmmmmmm! Like most people, when I can't sleep, I lay in bed and think of culinary concoctions to come up with. We have been munching on this better than caramel corn goodness. I was thinking how much we love to make and scarf puppy chow (with Chex cereal) and poppy chow (with popcorn). Why not try it with puffed corn??
If you don't know what puffed corn is, do a google image search for "puffed corn" and see what it looks like. I used this Seyfert's brand. Don't get the cheddar flavor.....just butter.
1 bag (7.5 oz) butter flavor corn puffs
1/2 cup butter (one stick)
1-12 oz package chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Pour corn puffs into large bowl. Pour chocolate chips into microwave safe bowl. Cut stick of butter into about 1 tbsp pieces and add to chocolate chips. Melt in microwave. Add peanut butter and vanilla and stir until creamy. Pour mixture over corn puffs and mix until well coated. Add powdered sugar and stir until evenly coated. Pour onto baking sheet and cool. I put mine outside or you can put in the refrigerator or cool area.
