My plan was to make these for my kids. I ended up eating most of them. I finally had to give some away to some friends. I LOVE Muddy Buddies, but these are my new favorite! It takes just a few minutes to make them and they are such a good treat! We LOVED them! And they didn’t last long at our house!

  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 5 cups Chex cereal any variety
  • 1 1/2 cups cake mix funfetti or preferred flavor

  1. I was curious as to if anyone has tried this with those mini M&Ms. Gives you a little extra flavor of chocolate vs. the funfetti pieces.

  2. I love chex mix desserts, this looks so tasty! Thank you so much for contributing this to the link party at mommy’s sweet confessions! See you at the next one!

  3. I love your picture! We call it puppy chow and I believe it’s because you can put it in a dish and eat it in 2 minutes flat…just like a pup 🙂 Happy Friday!
