Clifford's Red Velvet Puppy Chow

We love dogs, and Clifford is one of our favorites. But before Clifford was a big red dog, he was once just a little puppy, who wanted to know what the world love meant. This book, Puppy Love, teaches kids about loving being with friends and family. We bought this book at Cooper's school, thru the Scholastic Book Club, which gives points (aka books) to his classroom! This has become one of our favorites, and here is a recipe to make with your kids that Clifford and Emily Elizabeth would approve of, Red Velvet Puppy Chow!



  • 5 cups Chex cereal
  • 12 oz white chocolate candy melts, melted
  • 1 cup Red Velvet cake mix
