Chex Funfetti Cake Batter Buddies

Do you have 10 minutes?
Then I HIGHLY recommend running into the kitchen and throwing this amazing little snack together!
It’s is CRAZY addicting . . . so you might want to double the batch!
My husband loves all things made with a Funfetti cake mix, so I made it for him but ended up eating most of it myself.
Trust me . . . you are going to LOVE this!
Chex Funfetti Cake Batter Buddies:
5 cups Chex cereal (I used Rice Chex, but Corn Chex would work great!)
10 oz (5 squares) vanilla flavored Almond Bark
1 1/2 cups Funfetti cake mix
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vegetable shortening
Melt Almond Bark according to the package directions, adding vegetable shortening to thin. Pour the cereal into a large bowl and drizzle the melted Almond Bark over the cereal. Mix gently with a large spoon or spatula. Dump the cake mix and powdered sugar onto the cereal and mix gently with large spoon until all the cereal is evenly coated.

    I made these as a ‘rough day’ cure after a LONG day today. O M Goodness! Before I tried them I divided them out into single serving bags so as not to eat all my WW points in one sitting, and it is a good thing I did! I had my one serving and OH MY GOODNESS! I used white chocolate chips, no shortening or butter, and I was too lazy to mix the powdered sugar with the cake mix, so just did it straight. Also, I only used a cup and that seemed to be enough. Thank you thank you for sharing!

      You know, I have never had a batch last longer than 2 days because we eat it all! However, I really think that it would be fine for two weeks in an airtight container . . . it doesn’t have any ingredients that would go back. I say go ahead and try it! :) Let us know!

    Made these last night with a few modifications…I used 10 oz of white chocolate chips instead of the almond bark, and it worked perfectly. Duncan Hines also makes a “snack size” funfetti cake mix which is the perfect size for making this. I added all of this which equaled about 2 cups, and omitted the powdered sugar, and it was plenty sweet! These were awesome!

    I made this yesterday but had to make more today because and am embarrassed to admit, my neice and I ate the whole batch.This stuff is so addicting! Will def double it next time. I couldn’t find Vanilla Almond bark so I ended using a 12 ounce bag of vanilla chocolate chips and a 1/2 cup almonds I dusted in the processor and added a little almond extract which all worked for me.
    I Hope to make more for Easter but I’m afraid to as I have no will power when it comes to this stuff lol Thank you for sharing this recipe and look forward to trying more.

    I made this using white chcolate chips and added a little almond extract as well. IT IS DIVINE! im supposed to take it to an Easter bbq tomorrow..but i dont think it will last that long lol
    Also if you put the funfetti mix on regular “puppy chow” it is AMAZING!!

    Not sure what I did , maybe not enuf chocolate? I used a sm bag of white chocolate chips ( not sure what Almond Bark is) and only had Betty Crocker cake mix – but the chocolate seemed to chunk as I was stirring it. And I only used a cup of the cake mix and had a ton of powder left in the bowl I guess it didn’t coat well… Any1 else have this prob?

    My boyfriend and I made this about a month ago, and I hate to say it but we weren’t impressed. The cake batter made it taste like we were eating flour. We figure the next time, we’ll skip the cake batter and go all out on the powdered sugar.
    Everyone else’s reviews said that they turned out great, were we really the only one’s who disagreed?

  7. says

    this is awesome. I misread and was on my way to putting a 1.5 cup of cake mix and powdered sugar. I had a cup of each and said that looks like enough dry mix! They came out pretty sweet but OMG. I recorrected on the second batch to just under a cup of cake mix and just over a half cup of powdered sugar and that was great.

  8. says

    another way to “mix” this is… a large brown paper bag or even one of those plastic ones… if you use a brown paper bag you need to shake/mix it kind of quick as the bag will start to get soggy.. the plastic bag.. I put a little bit of the cake/PS mix in it first to keep mix from sticking… oh same w/ the paper bag…

    I have made this THREE times in the past two weeks. It has been a hit with everyone! One batch even made a four day trip in the USPS mail, packed away in little mason jars. My friends loved their suprise in the mail and I’m glad to hear they held up well! I also made a batch with gluten free vanilla cake mix and it was a hit. I’m making this again in a couple of days to share with my work friends! LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe!!! :)

  10. says

    Oh yes, lets just all eat cake mix straight from the box and coat it with lots of sugar and fat! Another healthy way to get through any situation: parties, long days, treating ourselves with the excuse to making it for our husbands. And girl with the gluten free recipe – trading flour, yeast, gluten for more sugar is not an answer to your problem.

    Found this on Pinterest and wanted to try it. I only had yellow cake mix. Followed the recipe exactly except I didn’t have shortening but didn’t matter. This came out great. I will definitely make it again. May add some pretzels to it too. :) Thanks for sharing.

    This looks Awesome! About how many servings would you say this specific recipe makes? I’m going to make this for my son’s birthday party and will need to fill small paper snack cups for about 50, and need to know about how many batches to make. Thanks so much!

    Using the Recipe Magic site (thanks Cyd!) this makes 10 servings and each serving is 2 WW PP. Note that the recipe at recipe magic does not call for powdered sugar. I would add an extra point just to be sure. Heading to the store for chocolate and Chex right now!

    • Cyd says

      When I pulled it up it shows 1/2 cup powdered sugar. I’m checking on it now. Seems to match the blog site. Thanks for the heads up…..we’ll make sure it all matches!

    I just made some for my son’s 3rd grade class Halloween party, but I used the “Halloween Funfetti” mix instead, sooo yummy! Also, I did not have almond bark, but was able to substitute Wilton’s candy melts with a little added shortening to thin it out. Added the sprinkles that come in the cake mix packet while the candy melts were still wet, but cooled down somewhat. Nice quick snack with a Halloween theme!! Thanks Six Sisters!!
