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.

I’ll tell you that it doesn’t have to be a birthday party to dig into this bag of goodness!
