Nutty Puppy Chow

My Grams would always make this recipe for Christmas. I can’t help but to make it more often with roasted peanuts and confectioners’ sugar. Oh so good. You gotta try this one.

Original recipe makes 24 servings


1/2 cup butter
1 (12 ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
1 (16 ounce) jar roasted peanuts
1 (12 ounce) package crispy corn and rice cereal (such as Crispix®)
1 cup raisins
