For the Brownies
Prepare Duncan Hines Brownies according to package directions for a "fudgy" brownie. Allow to cool.
Cut out shapes using cookie cutters, or cube into squares and thread on a skewer.
Can dip these in melted chocolate wafers. I use dark and white chocolate.
For the Cookies
Prepare Duncan Hines Mega Sugar Cookie mix according to package directions but use a mixing bowl and beaters to mix the dough.Add 2 Tablespoons of flour and 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to the mixture to stiffen up the cookie mixture and prevent spreading in the oven.
Wrap in plastic and refrigerate until chilled.
Flour a work surface and roll out the cookie dough to ¼th inch thickness. Cut out cookies and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 8-12 minutes until done.
For the Pink Puppy Chow
Blitz 1 cup of freeze-dried strawberries in a food processor, blender, ninja, or spice blender until powdery. Place in a small bowl and add ½ cup of powdered sugar. Mix until combined. Set aside.Melt 1 cup white chocolate wafers, mix until smooth. Add 3 - 4 cups of Chex Mix cereal to a large mixing bowl. Pour over the melted white chocolate and gently turn to coat, folding over carefully.Add the coated cereal to a large zip lock bag and add in the strawberry/powdered sugar mixture. Toss to coat.Spread the cereal out on a baking sheet or parchment paper in a single layer to dry and set up a little.
