Happy Valentine's Day. Today makes our first official valentine's day swap at preschool. I made little goodie bags filled with rice crispy treats and mini candy hearts. I am also sending each child home with a bag full of this Strawberries and cream puppy chow  . This recipe is festive and if you double everything it makes a really yummy treat to eat for yourself. Not that I would know or anything. 

8 ounces vanilla candiquik or white chocolate chocolate chips
6-8 cups chex cereal
1 cup strawberry cake mix
1 cup red velvet cake mix
1 cup powdered sugar, divided
½ package valentines chocolate M&M’s
melt half of the candiquik in the provided tray, or in a microwave safe dish, melt the chocolate chips.  if using the chips, add 1/2 teaspoon of shortening to help make it spread evenly.  dump the candy over top of the chex cereal in a large mixing bowl.
in a gallon size ziploc bag, put 1 cup strawberry cake mix and 1/2 cup powdered sugar.  in another ziploc bag, fill with the red velvet cake mix and the remaining half-cup of powdered sugar.
dump half the chex mixture into each of the ziploc bags and shake until coated.
add in the m+m candies and serve!

Happy Valentine's Day!
