My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and ktmadeit.com was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Traditional Puppy Chow

{ Prep Time: 6-8 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 24 servings }

Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (not the Smucker's natural peanut butter)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
9 cups rice or corn Chex cereal
1 1/2 -2 cups powdered sugar

Directions:
1. Measure out Chex into a large bowl. Set aside. In a microwave-safe dish, melt butter and chocolate chips in 30 second intervals. Stir between each interval until chocolate is completely melted and is of spreading consistency.
2. Once chocolate is completely melted, stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until combined, then pour over cereal.
3. Stir with a spatula until cereal is completely coated with chocolate mixture.
4. For this next step, I actually used two plastic grocery bags (One inside the other, just in case there are any holes. I didn't want powdered sugar all over my kitchen!) You could also use a large ziplock baggie. Place about half of the chocolate covered Chex in the bag, then add half of the powdered sugar. Tightly grasp the top of the bag, and twist to make sure none of the Chex fall out while you're shaking) and shake around until the Chex is completely covered with powdered sugar. *Make sure not to add too much powdered sugar, otherwise they will end up tasting too sweet.*
