This old favorite is dressed up New Years’ style and will satisfy every sweet tooth, young and old!
White Chocolate New Years Eve Puppy Chow
What you’ll need:
– 8 cups chex cereal
– 1 package white chocolate candiquik
– 2 tbsp vegetable shortening
– 1 – 1½ cups powdered sugar
– gold glitter sprinkles
– edible gold star sprinkles
– large Ziploc bag
How to make:
- Place chex cereal in a large bowl. Set aside.
- Break candiquik into squares for easier melting. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine candiquik & shortening. Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
- Before pouring chocolate onto cereal – reserve approx. ¼ cup for drizzling over puppy chow. Pour chocolate on top of the chex cereal, gently folding it in.
- Quickly transfer chex mixture to a large ziploc bag. Add in 1 cup of powdered sugar, seal & shake viciously until the cereal is coated. If the cereal is not completely coated, add another ½ cup of powdered sugar and shake again.
- Pour mixture onto a large baking sheet. Drizzle the reserved white chocolate on top of the cereal and then add the gold springkles and edible gold stars.
- Allow puppy chow to set on the baking sheet for ay 15 minutes before placing in a serving bowl. For good measure- add more gold stars before serving!
Enjoy this festive treat while remembering your favorite memories of 2015 with family & friends!
