Remember this little guy?
Well, he turns 1 this weekend (this photo made his invite) and since his Mom is my BFF from this picture, I
begged volunteered to help out with birthday treats! She put in a request for some appetizers, so of course, I made everyone’s favorite Sorority Spinach Dip. And since she knows I’m a big fan of the puppy chow, she suggested a bowl of that.
For a first birthday party, only one kind of puppy chow is appropriate…Cake Batter Puppy Chow. I actually learned about this recipe at a first birthday party, and it has appeared on the blog before. Per usual, I had my unwanted kitchen helper : )
Whose nose I was able to keep out of the bowl of chocolate covered Chex.
The secret ingredient to this recipe, is cake mix!
You cover your white chocolate coated cereal in mostly cake mix, with only a little bit of powdered sugar.
For that perfect cake-like taste!
I’ll tell you that it doesn’t have to be a birthday party to dig into this bag of goodness!
Wondering what to do with your leftover cake mix?
Cake Batter Fudge is totally the WAY TO GO!
Cake Batter Puppy Chow
6 cups Chex cereal
10 ounces white chocolate chips
1 heaping cup yellow cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Pour Chex into a big bowl.
Melt white chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second increments until smooth. Stir well and pour over cereal, using a spatula to distribute evenly.
Immediately sprinkle with sprinkles. Pour yellow cake mix over cereal. Use spatula to mix. Pour powdered sugar over cereal and fold everything together so that all of the pieces are covered.
Add more sprinkles if desired.
Sore in air tight container at room temperature or in the freezer.
*Recipe easily doubles to use up one full box of Chex and cake mix.
