1/2 C. chocolate chips

1 C. powdered sugar
Valentines colored M&M’s or other candies
Heart sprinkles for extra decoration and cute-ness

Place Rice Chex cereal into a large bowl. Place cake mix and powdered sugar into a large plastic bag or tupperware with a lid.

Dump cereal into the bag or tupperware with powdered sugar and cake mix. Shake until coated. Dump onto a cookie sheet and let cool. Mix with extra colorful candies and serve!

Oreo Fudge

Ok, I am never making fudge with sweetened condensed milk again. It doesn’t set up. It’s a gooey mess.

Oreo Fudge
16 reduced fat Oreos
12 oz white chocolate chips
12 oz fat free sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla

Line an 8×8 pan with foil. Crumble 8 of the cookies and add to the prepared pan. Melt chips and milk together—either in microwave or in a medium saucepan on the stovetop. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Combine well and pour into pan. Top with remaining crumbled cookies. Refrigerate to set (which it won’t). 😦
