Be Mine Series: Valentine Puppy Chow

I can't believe Valentine's Day is only days away!  Today I have another recipe for you guys.  I wanted to share something that required absolutely no cooking.  Some people just don't enjoy baking or cooking, so this is the perfect way to give somebody you love.  This one of my go to snacks but I found a Valentine's version on Pinterest.  Let me know if you try it.

5 ounces white chocolate chips
5 ounces red candy melts
1 teaspoon shortening
5 cups chex cereal
1 cup strawberry cake mix
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 package valentines chocolate M&M's

1. Start by dividing the chex mix into two bowls. (2 1/2 cup in each)
2. In microwave safe dish, melt the 5 ounces white chocolate chips. Add 1/2 teaspoon shortening so that the chocolate will spread evenly. Microwave 30 seconds at a time and be careful not to burn the chocolate. Dump this in the first bowl of chex and mix evenly to coat all of the chex cereal.
2. Melt the red candy melts next also checking and stirring the candy melts 30 seconds at a time. Once this is melted, pour this over the second bowl of divided chex and mix until coated.
3. In two gallon size ziplock bags, put 1/2 cup strawberry cake mix and 1/4 cup powdered sugar in each bag. Dump each bowl of chex mix in each bag and shake until coated with the powdered sugar and strawberry powdered cake mix.  Then add 1/2 package of Valentine M&M's and shake again.

There's only two days left!!!!!!!  Check back tomorrow!
