I hope my dentist isn't reading this...

I know I had dissed this recipe in the past, but my sweet tooth was craving this cool, summery treat. And besides, I found a new brand of tofu cream cheese that didn’t have any hydrogenated products in it. I made a delicious Key Lime Pie. I devoured two pieces the night I made it.


The next night, I was watching Jon & Kate Plus 8. I love that show because geez, if they can raise that many kids while maintaining some sort of sanity, it gives me hope that I can handle the one I have! During the episode, Kate revealed that she would be making Monkey Munch with the girls. It looked like a sweet variation of one of my faves – Chex (US)/Crispix (Canada) Mix! I was at the store the next day buying the ingredients that I was missing – all it takes is Crispix, chocolate chips, peanut butter, margarine, vanilla and icing sugar! Kyle and I are addicted.
I fear that I have turned into a junk food freak.

I used to make that stuff all the time in high school! Except we called it dog food...monkey munch sounds a lot better. :)

Hahah my sister eats that stuff all the time! But in Toledo, Oh they call it puppy chow! I don't personally like it (cause of the p.b.) but she loves it!

Dog food? Puppy Chow? Good god! Yeah, Monkey Munch seems way more appetizing!

Although maybe if I heard those names I wouldn't be pigging out on the stuff...

That pie looks really good! And I have heard of Monkey Munch, but I've never had it! Sounds good though!

I saw the monkey munch episode too! We used to eat that in high school, but I have never heard it called monkey munch before...we called it puppy chow for some odd reason. Whatever the name--it is addictive! I am not making it for that very reason...I have no will power!

Where did you find the tofu that had no hydrogenated products in it? Loved that recipe but hated using the hydrogenated product. Please please let me know asap! Thanks!

Hey anonymous...here's a link to the Yoso cream cheese thing I used. Got it here in Canada at Loblaws!
