Valentine's Inspired Puppy Chow

Image from Google
I'm headed to a girl's night out where we're going to get mani's, pedi's, and have snacks!
Doesn't that sound like fun?
I thought so!
But since we'll be hanging out in a nail shop, I wanted to take something that was a "grab and go" kind of snack. 
I didn't want anything that required serving spoons, refrigeration, or a crockpot!
But I wanted it kind of "Valentine-y," as if that's a real word!
So here's what I googled and found.
I looked at lots of recipes and they were all basically the same.
I haven't made this yet; so I don't know if it's good or not . . .but how bad could it really be?
I thought this would be cute as a little teacher treat, or a special snack in my cherub's lunch, too!
Valentine's Puppy Chow
5 C. Rice Chex cereal
3/4 C. white chocolate melts or chips
1/4 C. chocolate melts or chips
2 oz cream cheese, room temp
1 1/2 Tbsp. milk
1 C. Red Velvet Cake mix
1/2 C. powdered sugar
Valentines colored M&M's or other candies
Heart sprinkles for extra decoration and cute-ness
Measure out Rice Chex cereal and place into a large bowl.
Place cake mix and powdered sugar into a large plastic bag or tupperware with a lid.
Melt chocolates together in the microwave or on the stove top. Careful not to burn and stir until smooth.  Stir in cream cheese and milk (the chocolate will get thicker, but it's okay)
Pour chocolate over Rice Chex cereal and stir until coated.  Dump cereal into the bag or tupperware with powdered sugar and cake mix. Shake, shake, shake until coated.
Dump onto a cookie sheet and let cool.  Mix with extra colorful candies and serve!
NOTE: Because of the cream cheese, keep in the fridge if you won't be eating them that day.
