Melissa's Cuisine: Funfetti Puppy Chow

Funfetti Puppy Chow

I try to eat a healthy diet, but there are some treats I have a very hard time resisting.  No, scratch that...I simply can't resist them!  Some of those include marshmallows, S'mores, almost anything chocolate, and puppy chow.  Today let's talk about puppy chow...

This is a totally new version of puppy chow.  And, it's right up at my list of favorite treats now!  Growing up, I requested a Funfetti cake for every birthday. I love the pop of colors in the cake.  When I saw this recipe that combined my favorite cake and one of my favorite treats, I knew it would become a new favorite. 

I made this to bring to a Youth Group treat.  Fortunately for Mike and I, we had so many ofhter snacks that the container of this Funfetti Puppy Chow never got opened.  My poor students never knew what they were missing out on, and I got to enjoy more than my fair share of this!  I hope you'll give it a try, it has even fewer ingredients than traditional puppy chow and it's so simple to make!

Funfetti Puppy Chow
Makes 10, 1/2 cup servings

You will need:
5 cups Chex cereal
10 ounces (5 squares) vanilla flavored Almond Bark
1-1/2 cups Funfetti cake mix
additional sprinkles, if desired

1.  In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the Almond Bark in 30 second increments until it is melted and can be stirred smooth.

2.  Pour the cereal into a large bowl with a lid and drizzle with the melted Almond Bark.  Stir until the cereal is completely coated.

3.  Sprinkle the cake mix and sprinkles (if desired) on top of the coated cereal and put the lid on the bowl.  Shake the bowl until the cereal is evenly coated.

Store in an airtight container.
