Strawberry Cake Puppy Chow

Last week I posted about the peppermint puppy chow I made for Christmas, today I'm posting about the strawberry cake puppy chow I made for New Years!

I love taking puppy chow to get-togethers.  It's easy to make, easy to eat, and people love it!

So it was no surprise when all my friends attacked the bowl of puppy chow right away. 

I've heard that the flavor of this puppy chow is comparable to those strawberry wafer cookies.  In other words: totally and completely addicting.  

Strawberry Cake Puppy Chow
Recipe Adapted From: What's Cookin Love
5-6 C. Chex cereal
1 12 oz. bag white chocolate chips
1 1/2 C. strawberry cake mix
1/2 C. powdered sugar

Measure the Chex cereal into a large bowl

Measure out the cake mix and powdered sugar and put it into a gallon sized zip lock bag.

Put the white chocolate chips into the microwave and heat in 30 second intervals until completely melted.  If the chocolate get's a little overheated and seems too thick, put a tablespoon of Crisco in the chocolate and stir until fully incorporated.  

Pour the chocolate onto the cereal and stir to completely coat.

pour the coated cereal from the bowl into the zip lock bag with the cake mix and sugar in it.  (You might want to recruit an assistant!)

Shake the bag until all the cereal has been coated with the cake/sugar. 

That's all there is to it!  Enjoy!
