A Cutie & A Recipe

I FINALLY tried out a new recipe.  I actually did this one last week, but I'm just getting around to putting it on here.  Has anybody ever heard of Chex Dog Food or Rice Krispie Puppy Chow?  Well, this is a similar but different recipe.  It was really easy and a fun snack or treat.  I'm posting it here, and on my recipe blog.  If you don't care to read the recipe (and I wouldn't unless I was going to MAKE it), scroll all the way to the bottom for a cute video of Kate!

Here's what you'll need: 
5 cups Chex cereal (I used Rice Chex, but Corn Chex would work great!)
10 oz (5 squares) vanilla flavored Almond Bark
1 1/2 cups Funfetti cake mix (any kind of cake mix would work)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vegetable shortening (not pictured)

How to make it: 
1. Melt Almond Bark according to the package directions, adding vegetable shortening to thin (I heard that you can make it without the shortening, but it worked great for me to use it).

2. Place your chex mix in one large bowl.  In a separate bowl mix the cake mix and the powdered sugar. 

3. Pour the cereal into a large bowl and drizzle the melted Almond Bark over the cereal. Mix gently with a large spoon or spatula.

4. Dump the cake mix and powdered sugar onto the cereal and mix gently with large spoon until all the cereal is evenly coated.  It just looks like a big messy blob at this point.

5.  But it's a big TASTY messy blob.  Enjoy!

Just because I wanted to share this, here is a video of Kate from this past Sunday.  She is SUCH a happy baby, and I love seeing her smile and laugh every day!  


  1. Oh my word, what a sweet video!! She is such a little doll! And I MUST try this recipe soon - sounds so so yummy!! :)

    1. Thank you! We think she's pretty cute too- but I'm sure we ARE a little biased! The recipe is pretty good. It didn't disappoint! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to "meet" you!


I'd love to hear from you- new friends or old!
