Butter Buddies

from Smells Like Brownies


  • 9 cups Chex corn or rice
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Pour cereal into a large bowl; set aside.
  2. Put butterscotch chips, peanut butter, and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir until smooth. If it's still really lumpy, microwave for another 30 seconds and stir again. Once the mixture is completely smooth, stir in the vanilla.
  3. Pour the butterscotch mixture over the Chex. Stir gently until all the Chex is coated.
  4. Put the powdered sugar in a very large zip top bag. Scoop the candy-coated Chex into the bag and zip it shut. Shake until all the cereal is coated in powdered sugar.
