Chex Funfetti Cake Batter Buddies

These Funfetti Cake Batter Buddies are so easy to make and full of flavor. I may say they are even better than our Chocolate and Peanut Butter Muddy Buddies.

Do you have 10 minutes?
Then I HIGHLY recommend running into the kitchen and throwing this amazing little snack together. It 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 recipe.
It’s great for game night, movie night, midnight munchies, or just anytime you are craving a crunch snack. It only requires 5 simple and inexpensive ingredients, that you may already have on hand.
I may even say these are better than our original chocolate and peanut butter Muddy Buddies.

Only three simple steps to make this recipe:

Start with your cereal. We prefer and recommend to use Chex cereal. It captures the white chocolate and holds in the powdered sugar and cake mix a little better.

Add your melted chocolate. You can use vanilla almond bark, or white chocolate chips.
Add your dry ingredients, and a few extra sprinkles, if desired.
Eat and enjoy.

can i make this using different cereal?

For this recipe, we like to use Chex Mix because it allows the white chocolate to settle into the cereal, and the cake batter to cling to it, giving this more flavor as well as crunch.

We have never made this recipe using a different cereal, but it would still work. The powdered sugar and the cake mix might not stick as well, but it would still be delicious.

Here are a few cereals we recommend you trying, with this recipe:

  • Cheerio’s (Honey Nut, or Frosted)
  • Frosted Flakes
  • Life
  • Golden Grahams
  • Rice Krispies

can i use white chocolate instead of almond bark?

You could most definitely use white chocolate in place of Almond Bark. We recommend the almond bar, because it calls for quite a bit of white chocolate, and the flavor has a little more almond taste to it, but white chocolate would work just as well.

  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. Such a good recipe! I was looking for something special to send my friend in Afghanistan for his birthday and this was perfect. Used white chocolate chips in place of the almond bark and posted my recipe on:
    Thanks for this gem!
  9. 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. 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.

    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!
    • This is where are new sister site comes on the MAGIC button under the picture. Then click on NUTRITION. It will give you the servings and all nutritional value and so much more.

    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!
  13. 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!!
  14. Since I am making this to share with other people, I called the Pillsbury consumer line to verify there are no issues with using a cake mix right out of the box as a coating. I was told Pillsbury does not recommend eating anything raw and the cake mix has raw flour in it. I just wanted to pass this on.
