Recipe of the Month: Strawberry Valentine’s Day Chex Mix



• 4-6 cups Rice Chex cereal
• 1 8-oz bag Strawberry Candy Melts OR
• 1 bag of white chocolate baking chips {12 oz} AND
• 1 box of Strawberry Creme Jell-O Pudding** {pudding, NOT gelatin!}

• Valentines M&M’s and/or Sprinkles


Measure out the Chex cereal into a large bowl. Note: if you’re using the Strawberry Candy Melts, you’ll use 4 cups of cereal. If you’re using the white chocolate chips and pudding mix, you’ll use 6 cups of cereal.

Pour the chocolate into a small glass dish. Add in 1/2 tsp of shortening, if desired, to help the chocolate coat the cereal more easily.

Microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds. Let sit in the microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and gently stir. If once stirred the chocolate looks smooth, it’s done. If not, return to the microwave in 15 second increments, letting it sit for 2-3 minutes each time, until melted and smooth.

If you used White Chocolate Chips and Pudding Mix: Add in 4 TBSP of the strawberry cream pudding into the white chocolate and stir gently until smooth. Add in 2 drops of red food coloring, if desired.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the Chex cereal and then stir gently to coat.

Transfer the cereal mixture to a large piece of wax paper. Sprinkle with M&Ms and Valentine’s colored sprinkles, if desired.

Let cool to set. Break into pieces and then store in an airtight container to save. Candy can be made up to 3-4 days ahead if desired. It saves really well!
