Red Velvet Puppy Chow
Back in October I made a Halloween Version of Puppy Chow - one of my all time favorite childhood snacks! Well, now that I'm an adult who still loves this treat as well as a food blogger who likes to come up with creative things, I decided to do a version a Puppy Chow in honor of Valentine's Day!! How does Red Velvet Puppy Chow sound to ya???? Awesomeness is the word that comes to my mind :-) The recipe, which I adapted from the Your cup of Cake Blog, is below:
Time: 30-45 minutes total
Yield: 5 Cups
■ 5 Cups Rice Chex Cereal
■ 3/4 Cups White Chocolate Chips
■ 1/4 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
■ 2 oz. Cream Cheese - room temp
■ 1 1/2 Tbsp Milk (I used Almond Milk)
■ 1 Cup Red Velvet Cake Mix
■ 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
■ Valentine colored M&M's or other candies
■ Heart shaped sprinkles for extra decoration!
■ Measure your Rice Chex Cereal and place in a large bowl
■ Place Cake Mix and powdered sugar into a large plastic bag or Tupperware with a lid
■ Melt Chocolates together on the stove and stir until smooth
■ Stir in Cream Cheese and Milk
■ Pour Chocolate over Rice Chex Cereal and stir until coated
■ Dump Cereal coated in chocolate in the bag or tupperware with powdered sugar and cake mix. Shake, shake, shake until coated.
■ Dump onto a cookie sheet and let cool.
■ Mix with colorful candies and serve
** Because of the cream cheese, you will need to refrigerate these.....if, there are any leftover lol!
