Camping Cereal Treats

I not sure about you, but I go camping for the great food. Well, the more I think about it, that's why I do most things. Here are a couple of Melissa camping standards.
I am sure you have heard of Muddy Buddies or something similar like: Monkey Munch, Puppy Chow or Snow Man Dropping.
Here is my recipe:
1 Stick Butter
1Cup Peanut Butter
1 Generous Cup Chocolate Chips (I use Semi-Sweet)
12 oz. box Rice or Corn Chex Cereal
1 lb.+ a little more Powdered Sugar.
Melt 1st 3 ingredients in microwave, 1 minute at a time. Mix well. Pour over cereal. At this point you can put the mixture in a large zip lock and add sugar and shake. I like to leave it in the bowl I mixed it in (if it has a lid), add sugar and secure lid. Turn upside down and shake.

Shake it like nobodies business! When all cereal is covered you are down. It's at this point I put it in a Ziploc bag and then store it in the refrigerator. It is so much better cold!

This bowl of yumminess is Gooey Good Stuff.

6 Cups Crispix or Rice Chex
6Cups Special K or Total or Corn Flakes
1/2 Cup mixed nuts (optional)
1 1/2 Cups Coconut
Mix in a large bowl
Then Boil the following for 3 minutes in a med. pan.
1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
1 1/2 Karo Syrup
1 1/2 Sticks Margarine or Butter
Pour over dry ingredients. Let it lay on a cookie sheet for a couple of hours.
