I see Valentine’s Day as an excuse to eat red and pink colored things. You can keep your overpriced flowers and your fancy dinners.
Just give me some red or pink sweets. I do, however, prefer that chocolate is involved in some way.
If you’re looking for a quick, easy, and delicious Valentine’s Day snack mix recipe that involves pink and red goodies then I have you covered with this white chocolate snack mix.
You may have tried something very familiar. I’ve heard it called anything from Christmas crack (because it’s so addicting) to white trash (because it’s taking a bunch of random stuff, putting it together, and covering it in white chocolate). Now I know those aren’t PC at all but I didn’t name them.
I thought I’d also include a fun, free printable because I’m nice like that.
Slap some of the mix into a bag, print the snack bag toppers, staple them on, and you appear to be the mom who has her stuff together.
But if you don’t want to be seen as a “Pinterest Mom” then skip the printable, make the snack mix, keep it all to yourself, and send some suckers with your kids’ Valentine’s.
Here’s the white chocolate snack mix recipe. Keep in mind that this can be easily edited to fit your tastes. For example, if someone in your family is allergic to peanuts, omit the peanuts. Or if you really like pretzels, add more. If you want it to be more chocolatey, add more chocolate. It’s kinda hard to mess this one up.
- 2 cups corn Chex cereal
- 1 cup pretzels
- 1 cup Cheerios
- 1 cup M&Ms
- 1 cup peanuts
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- Combine Chex cereal, pretzels, Cheerios, M&Ms, peanuts in large bowl.
- In separate bowl, mix oil and white chocolate chips and melt in either the microwave or double boiler.
- Pour melted chocolate over dry ingredients and fold everything together.
- Spread mixture out onto wax paper to cool and set.
- Note: You can substitute the white chocolate chips and oil for white melting chocolate.
And here’s the snack bag toppers printable (click on it to print it).
There’s two toppers on a sheet. I recommend printing on card stock. Print, cut each out, fold down the middle, and staple onto a snack bag with the snack mix inside.
