Looking for a unique Valentine's Day snack? Cherry Puppy Chow puts a smile on everyone's face. Pink and red sprinkles make this tasty treat extra fun to eat!


  • 8 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 package (16 ounce) Vanilla almond bark
  • 1 package (0.3 ounce) Sugar Free JELL-O cherry gelatin mix
  • 1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
  • sprinkles


  1. In a microwave dish, melt vanilla bark for one minute. Stir, heat an additional 30 seconds until creamy. Mix in the cherry gelatin mix.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the cereal with melted chocolate. Stir until completely coated.
  3. Pour into a large gallon sized container with powdered sugar. Shake. Shake. Shake.
  4. Pour onto a large baking sheet with or parchment paper, until set. Add sprinkles. Store in covered container up to two weeks. ENJOY!


  • Sugar Free Cherry JELL-O. I use sugar free because the powdered sugar already makes the puppy chow plenty sweet. You will add the gelatin powder right to the recipe.
  • Vanilla Bark. This is also sold as "almond candy coating" in the baking aisle. Ghirardelli white chocolate wafers are also a delicious choice!
  • Storage: Keep in airtight container for up to 2 weeks (we use a ziploc freezer bag).
  • Skip the baking sheet and add the sprinkles right into the ziploc bag after shaking with powdered sugar!
