I think I could come up with any excuse to make puppy chow! I love this stuff and it’s so addicting! And since Valentines day is filled with lots of sweet stuff that is bad for you, I thought this would be a perfect excuse to make some!
My husband’s all time favorite dessert is red velvet anything! I thought red velvet puppy chow would be a perfect treat for him for Valentines.
here is what you will need;
8 cups Chex mix cereal
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons butter
¼ cup peanut butter
1 ½ cup powdered sugar
1 box of red velvet cake mix, 16 oz
½ cup mint M&M’s
You will need to work quickly once your chocolate mix is melted, so first pour your cereal into a separate bowl, and place your powdered sugar and red velvet cake mix in a large zip lock bag.
Next add your chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter into a microwavable bowl. Microwave it in small time intervals no longer than 30 seconds. Mix and then continue to microwave until your mixture is completely melted and smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over your cereal and stir until all cereal is covered. Next add your cereal to the bag with powdered sugar and cake mix, and then shake until evenly coated. After everything is coated I place my puppy chow in a large cookie sheet to cool. Once cooled, I mixed in the mint M&M’s.
Toss a cup of your puppy chow into a baggy and give it away to your Valentine!
Trust me, your going to want to give it away! Other wised you may end up eating the whole batch!
