Serves 8 – 10

Prep time: 5 minutes | Inactive time: 15 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes plus cooling time


  • 8 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 (10.2-ounce) bag Lindt white chocolate truffles, unwrapped
  • 3 tablespoons Biscoff Spread
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup puffed rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • Edible gold glitter

  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set it aside.
  3. Pour the Rice Chex cereal into a large mixing bowl, and set it aside.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate truffles, Biscoff Spread and vegetable oil. Microwave the mixture on high for 1 minute.
  5. Remove the mixture from the microwave, and stir it until melted and smooth. If needed, add additional time in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the chocolate is completely melted.
  6. Pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal.
  7. Add the puffed rice cereal and marshmallows to the bowl.
  8. Using a large, rubber spatula, gently stir to coat.
  9. Transfer the mixture to the previously prepared baking sheet, and spread it out in 1 even layer.
  10. Place it in the oven, and bake for 15 minutes.
  11. Remove the mix from the oven, and allow it to completely cool, about 20 minutes.
  12. In the meantime, melt some white chocolate.
  13. Transfer the chocolate to a piping bag, and drizzle the chocolate over the mix. Sprinkle the mix with edible glitter.
  14. Once cooled, break the mix into pieces, and serve immediately.
  15. If serving a couple of days later, store the puppy chow in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
