Red Velvet Puppy Chow

redvelvetpuppychowValentine’s Day is a perfect time for cute and tasty gifts for friends and family.

I have had my eye on this Red Velvet Puppy Chow Recipe for a while and wanted to try it out…because I am a HUGE fan of red velvet and puppy chow. Put in a clear bag, add ribbon and a tag and it is a cute way to say Happy Valentine’s Day!

Red Velvet Puppy Chow from Your Cup of Cake

5 C. Rice Chex or Crispex cereal
3/4 C. white chocolate melts or chips
1/4 C. chocolate melts or chips
2 oz cream cheese, room temp
1 1/2 Tbsp. milk
1 C. Red Velvet Cake mix
1/2 C. powdered sugar
Valentines colored M&M’s or other candies
Heart sprinkles for extra decoration and cute-ness


Measure out Rice Chex cereal and place into a large bowl. Place cake mix and powdered sugar into a large plastic bag or tupperware with a lid. Melt chocolates together in the microwave or on the stove top. Careful not to burn and stir until smooth. Stir in cream cheese and milk (the chocolate will get thicker, but it’s okay) Pour chocolate over Rice Chex cereal and stir until coated. Dump cereal into the bag or tupperware with powdered sugar and cake mix. Shake, shake, shake until coated. Dump onto a cookie sheet and let cool. Mix with extra colorful candies and serve!

Because of the cream cheese, I would recommend eating it the day your make it, or tell your Valentine to store it in the fridge. You can also omit the cream cheese all together if you wish…if you do that, you don’t need the milk either!
