“And they left him behind in a wind that very faintly smelled of licorice and cotton candy.” ~Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Cotton Candy Puppy Chow


4 cups vanilla chex cereal

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 1/2 cup Betty Crocker cotton candy cookie mix

3/4 cup pink candy melts

3/4 cup blue candy melts


  1. Measure out the chex cereal placing half in a mixing bowl. Measure out half of the cookie mix and half the powdered sugar and place into a resealable container or a resealable large plastic bag.
  2. Measure out the candy melts (one color) and melt in the microwave. Set the microwave to 50% and microwave 30 second increments stopping to stir every 30 seconds. Continue until completely melted. Pour melted candy melts over the cereal and stir until the cereal is completely covered.
  3. Scoop the cereal into the container with the powdered sugar and cookie mix. Make sure it’s closed tightly and give a few good shakes to coat the cereal fully.
  4. Pour out onto a sheet of wax paper to allow to cool and dry.
  5. Repeat these steps with the other color of candy melts.
  6. Store in an air tight container.
