On Valentine’s morning I made a one of our new valentine’s day treats . . . it’s addictive. I had to wrap it up quickly or I’d eat it all. I’m not kidding.
This is another EASY treat to share with those you love.
In a large bowl, mix together Chex cereal and M&M’s. Melt white chocolate chips and pour over the mixture.
To make white puppy chow, pour powder sugar on top of the mixture. Gently stir together & be careful not to break the cereal. Set aside
Repeat melting white chocolate and stirring with cereal-candy mixture. This time pour red cake mix to make pink puppy chow. If you want a darker pink, use red candy melts instead of white chocolate.
I looked for a red velvet cake mix, but couldn’t find it. The strawberry cake mix gave a nice flavor to the puppy chow.
Mix together and you’ll have pink puppy chow. If you taste this, you might not stop eating it 🙂
Combine white & pink puppy chow. Add some more M&M’s. Now, you’re ready to wrap it up.
I had a little bit of red plastic wrap, so I started with red plastic wrap. Next, I criss-crossed with clear plastic wrap. (You can use all red if you like). Pour a generous scoop or two in the middle. Pull up the corners to bundle it.
Use red curling ribbon to tie a nice bow. Use your scissors to curl the ribbon. Add as many curling strands as you like.
I’m sure you could package this in cuter ways, but I wanted to use what I had on hand. If you have small bags or boxes, feel free to use those.
As soon as I was finished wrapping our valentine’s day treats I headed to Hunter’s house to deliver them.
If you’re having a party, pour single servings into small bowls. That’s what I did for Steve & me after our Valentine’s dinner.
