Classic puppy chow gets a makeover with decadent red velvet and colorful M&M's. This red velvet puppy chow is perfect for everyday snacking or a festive gift.
‣ 1 1/4 cup white chocolate, chips or roughly chopped bar ‣ 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate, chips or roughly chopped bar ‣ 4 ounce cream cheese, softened ‣ 2 tablespoon milk ‣ 2 cup dry red velvet cake mix ‣ 1 cup powdered sugar ‣ 9 cup Chex cereal, (roughly 1 12oz box) ‣ candy or sprinkles, optional
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate per package instructions, then mix until smooth.
Add the cream cheese and milk, then mix well.
In a 13 quart mixing bowl, pour the melted chocolate over the Chex cereal. Use a spatula to gently toss to coat the cereal in chocolate.
In a ZipLoc bag, add the red velvet cake mix and powdered sugar, then gently shake the bag to mix them together.
Working in batches, scoop in a portion of the coated Chex cereal, seal the bag, then shake to coat the cereal in red velvet mixture. Repeat this step until all the puppy chow is coated.
Spread the puppy chow out on a flat surface (like a baking sheet) and allow it to cool, dry, and set. If desired, add festive candies or sprinkles.
