Puppy Chow Recipe - valentines

Valentine's Puppy Chow Mix

Servings 6 servings



  • Melt 1/2 cup of one color of candy melts in the microwave, heating for 25 seconds, then stirring, and reheating as needed until smooth.
  • Stir in 1/2 Tablespoon of shortening, and then 1 cup of Chex cereal.
  • Stir to coat the Chex cereal completely.
  • Place one third of the powdered sugar (about 3 Tablespoons) into a ziplock bag and add the candy-coated Chex. Close the bag and give it a good shake for one or two minutes.
  • The candy won't be completely sugar-coated since we want the color to stand out, so the pieces will stick together a bit. Try to space them out on a cookie sheet to dry.
  • Repeat this process with the other two colors of candy melts.
  • Let dry for at least one hour - avoid the temptation to put this in the fridge as that will cause the candy to sweat when it is returned to room temperature.
