Valentine’s Day Panda Chow

Move over puppy chow, panda chow is taking over Valentine’s Day! We used gluten-free and wheat-free Peanut Butter Panda Puffs Cereal instead of Chex, and since there is already peanut butter in the cereal, we also got to omit that messy step involving peanut butter with traditional puppy chow. After we mixed in some yummy chocolate candy from Oriental Trading, we placed the panda chow in bright pink popcorn boxes and sent them on their way – adorable Valentine’s Day notes included. There’s nothing quite like a homemade Valentine!

We used the extra chocolates and made smaller Valentine’s Day treats by sticking jeweled stickers on mini heart shaped containers. This was by far Zelda’s favorite part (other than sucking the white chocolate off the panda chow and depositing it back in my hand!). What Valentine’s Day treats are you cooking up in the kitchen? Tell me in the comments below.
