Valentine’s Day Strawberry Puppy Chow #ChexMuddyBuddies

When I made Funfetti Chex Buddies Candy last year, it was all I could to to keep from eating the entire batch in one sitting.  It was absolutely delicious. This year I wanted to make the same thing, but pink for Valentine’s Day.  I sapped out a few ingredients and voila!  Another family favorite!

Valentine’s Day Strawberry Puppy Chow


  • 6 oz white chocolate or white vanilla candy melts
  • 5 cups rice chex cereal
  • 1 cup strawberry cake mix
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Valentine’s themed M&Ms


  1. Put rice chex cereal into a large sized bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together strawberry cake mix and powdered sugar.
  3. Slowly melt white chocolate in the microwave, stopping it every 30 seconds or so to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  4. Add melted white chocolate to chex cereal and lightly stir to coat evenly. Be careful to not break the chex cereal too much.
  5. Add the cake mix & powdered sugar to the white chocolate covered chex cereal and lightly stir to coat evenly. You could add the chex cereal and powdered sugar mixture  to a ziplock bag, then shake to coat as well, but I find the bowl is easier.
  6. Allow to dry completely and then add M&Ms.
  7. Enjoy!


  1. I’ve never made puppy chow (and have wanted to) but I think my boys would enjoy this recipe a lot. Thanks for posting!
