Funfetti Cake Batter Buddies

Saw this one on Pinterest here and knew that I needed to try it out. Mine doesn't look quite as good as their picture, but it was definitely yummy!  Definitely an easy recipe for a special snack or treat!

Here's what you'll need: 

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 (any kind of cake mix would work)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vegetable shortening (not pictured)

How to make it: 
1. Melt Almond Bark according to the package directions, adding vegetable shortening to thin (I heard that you can make it without the shortening, but it worked great for me to use it).

2. Place your chex mix in one large bowl.  In a separate bowl mix the cake mix and the powdered sugar. 

3. Pour the cereal into a large bowl and drizzle the melted Almond Bark over the cereal. Mix gently with a large spoon or spatula.

4. Dump the cake mix and powdered sugar onto the cereal and mix gently with large spoon until all the cereal is evenly coated.  It just looks like a big messy blob at this point.

5.  But it's a big TASTY messy blob.  Enjoy!
