Puppy Chow (Free of Milk, Gluten, Peanuts, Eggs)

A rare treat we had at my family get-togethers growing up was puppy chow.  What goes together better than chocolate and peanut butter?  Two of my faves!  But now that I have kids with food allergies, we must adjust.  I took our family recipe and tweaked it to meet our needs.
Puppy Chow
1/4 c milk-free butter (I used Earth Balance Soy Free)
3 c chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
1 c peanut butter alternative*
12 oz Rice Chex (gluten-free)
3 c powdered sugar

Over low heat, melt butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter alternative.  Pour mixture over Rice Chex and mix.  Let stand 5 minutes.  Put cereal and powdered sugar in a paper bag and shake well.  Pour into a bowl and freeze 1-2 hours. 

*I halved this recipe and added 1/2 c Barney's almond butter (which is dedicated peanut-free) to one half and 1/2 c Wowbutter (made with soy) to the other half.   

Both batches taste eerily like the original peanut butter version.  So delicious!
