February is officially upon us. Which to most people means Valentine’s Day is approaching. Personally I’m not really a Valentine’s Day sort of person. I will admit though, that of all the holidays I think Valentine’s Day has the best candy! Chocolates with strawberry, red velvet everything, and plenty of dark chocolate! It’s all so good!

Of course I tend to wait until February 15th to buy all my Valentine’s candy! I love a good discount.

For my first Valentine’s Day themed post, I decided to go with Red Velvet. It’s a Valentine’s staple, I love it, and there is so much you can do with it. I kept it simple, with a delightful Red Velvet Puppy Chow.

This isn’t the first time I’ve made Red Velvet Puppy Chow. I made a batch a few years ago from a recipe that I found on Pinterest. It tasted good right after I made it, but two hours later….not so much. The recipe called for milk in the coating and we all know what happens to cereal in milk. It gets soggy. After a couple of hours the puppy chow had become soft and lost all of its crunch. I don’t know about you, but I like my puppy chow crunchy.

So as per usual, I decided to make my own! And boy is it delicious!

It’s super easy to make and you only need four ingredients. I used candy coating to cover the Chex cereal and tossed it in a mixture of red velvet cake mix and powdered sugar.

If you have some oil based cream cheese icing flavoring you could add it to the candy coating. However, a water based flavoring will cause the coating to seize.

I absolutely loved this Red Velvet Puppy Chow! I’m pretty sure I ate half the bag in one sitting. Yum!
