Frankenberry Monster Chow – A Sweet & Spooky Twist on a Classic!

Dig your claws into my Frankenberry Monster Chow, full of sweet, crunchy, strawberry flavor!

If you’ve seen any of my recent posts, then you already are aware that my next few recipes will be featuring all of General Mills’ Monster Cereals, including the return of Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute from the cereal graveyard! If you haven’t been following, or are new to my site, then you are in for a treat with today’s recipe! This is the first of many of my “Monster Chow” recipes, and for this one, I am sharing the recipe for my Frankenberry Monster Chow!

Whether you’re familiar with Chex snack mix as ‘Puppy Chow’ or ‘Muddy Buddies’, this is the same concept…except The Homicidal Homemaker uses the strawberry-deliciousness of Frankenberry cereal!

Like my recipe for my Yummy Mummy Fudge, this is a snap to put together, and is super easy! And super addictive (just as a warning!).

Frankenberry Monster Chow

    What To Do:

    • 2.5 Cups of Frankenberry Cereal
    • 5 oz of pink-colored candy melts (you may also use white candy melts)
    • 4 Tablespoons of powdered sugar
    • 4 Tablespoons of Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry Cake Mix

    What To Do:


    Remove marshmallows from cereal, and set aside. Pour cereal pieces into a large Ziplock bag.

    Measure out 1/2 Cup of candy melts, and add a few more candy melts on top to get approximately 5oz of candy melts. Melt candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until candy melts are melted and smooth. Pour into Ziplock bag, over cereal pieces. Seal bag, and shake to evenly coat the cereal pieces.

    Add powdered sugar and dry cake mix to the Ziplock bag; seal and shake to evenly coat the cereal pieces. After they are fully coated, add reserved marshmallows to the mix.

    Pour into serving bowl, and enjoy!
