xoxo Valentine Chex Mix xoxo
Valentines Day is almost here! I'm sure I will make my world famous Chocolate Covered Strawberries (because they have already been requested, who knew you could put in requests for Valentines gifts?), but I thought I would try something new this year as well. I ran across this cute idea on Pinterest and had to give it a try for myself.
It is pretty darn yummy so I'm not completely sure there will be any left for gift giving. Oops! Don't tell my friends and family you saw this post, just incase there isn't any left for them. Ummmk??
Valentine Chex Mix
6 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 bag of white chocolate baking chips (12 oz)
4 T powder pudding mix from a box of Strawberry Creme Jell-O Pudding** (make sure you use pudding)
1 T Shortening
Valentine M &M's, sprinkles, food coloring
Dump the chex cereal into a large bowl. In a microwave safe container, dump the white chips and shortening in and microwave for 1 min. Stir and then microwave in 30 second intervals stirring each time until all the chips are melted. Just be careful not to scorch your chocolate.
Stir the 4 T strawberry pudding powder into the white chocolate. Add food coloring if you wish.
Dump the chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss to coat. Spread out on waxed paper. Sprinkle M & M's and sprinkles over the cereal mixture. Allow to cool and dry, then store in an air tight container.
