  • 1 cup yellow cake mix 120 grams
  • 8 cups Rice Chex cereal 240 grams
  • 8 ounces white melting chocolate 226 grams
  • 2 tablespoons Rainbow sprinkles 24 grams
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar 28 grams


  • Spread the yellow cake mix in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 5 minutes, or until the temperture reaches 160°F. This will prevent possible foodborne illness from consuming raw flour. Set aside to cool.
    1 cup yellow cake mix
  • Pour the rice Chex in a large bowl.
    8 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • Melt the white chocolate according to package directions.
    8 ounces white melting chocolate
  • Pour the melted white chocolate over the Chex, and gently stir to fully coat the Chex.
  • Wait a couple of minutes for the chocolate to cool slightly, then gently stir in the sprinkles.
    2 tablespoons Rainbow sprinkles
  • Add in the yellow cake mix and powdered sugar, and gently toss the Chex to fully coat them in the mixture.
    ¼ cup powdered sugar


  • You can use different variations of melting chocolate, including white chocolate, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate to create different flavors.
  • When making a chocolate version of this puppy chow, consider using chocolate sprinkles instead of multicolored sprinkles.
  • To ensure that the cake mix and powdered sugar will coat the Chex, make sure to add it before the almond bark cools and hardens completely.
Storage: Store cake batter puppy chow in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
