Nutella Muddy Buddies (Puppy Chow)

I've seen several versions of Muddy Buddies also known as Puppy Chow floating around the blogosphere and I had every intention to keep to the basics but we happened to pick up a jar of nutella recently.  So, I thought what if I substitute nutella for peanut butter and it was the best decision yet.

Nutella Muddy Buddies (Puppy Chow)
adapted from
Makes 18 servings (1/2 cup each)

9 cups of rice, corn, wheat or chocolate chex (or combination)
1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 nutella
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

In a large bowl, measure out the cereal and set aside.

In a microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and butter uncovered on High for 1 minute; stir.  Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture is stirable.  Stir in the nutella.  Stir in the vanilla.  Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.  Pour into a 2 gallon resealable food storage plastic bag.

Add powdered sugar by the 1/2 cup.  Seal bag each time and shake until well coated.  Spread on a waxed paper lined sheet pan to cool.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
