Valentine’s Day Snack Mix

This is just the sweetest!! —truly it is—and also very delicious!

What a cute snack mix for the sweetest folks in your life!  A neighbor, the mail-carrier, the delivery driver, a bus driver, teachers... for friends and family too!

Here’s the recipe:


6 cups corn or rice Chex cereal 

4 cups Very Berry Cheerios

1 1/2 cup peanut butter

1 cup chocolate chips-milk or semi-sweet

3 cups confectioner’s sugar

Add Ins:

Dried cherries, cranberries or salted nuts

Candies: Valentine’s M &Ms or Candy hearts


Measure the Chex cereal in a large bowl-set aside.

In a small saucepan over low heat melt the peanut butter and chocolate chips together. Pour the melted chocolate and peanut butter over the Chex cereal, gently stir to coat.  Once coated, add the confectioner’s sugar 1 cup at a time to coat.  Spread on a baking sheet and let cool.  

Once cooled, add the prepared Chex cereal to a large bowl or container, mix in the Very Berry Cherries, and any add-ins like candy, nuts or dried fruit. Stir.  

For gift-giving, portion into cellophane bags, tie with cute ribbons. Because this mix contains peanut butter, I always label the ingredients.

Please Enjoy!! 

I am wishing you and yours a sweet Valentine’s Day weekend.  We’re expecting snow... so, cozy hot chocolates and movies are in order! What are your plans?
