The kids have Valentine’s Parties coming up soon at school, so I thought I would start thinking about sweet treats now. I love Valentines Day because it is all about love and kindness. Some may think it is overly mushy but I think it is fantastic! Plus my daughters birthdays fall awful close to valentines which means I get to take advantage of all the pink and red decorations for birthdays! 😉
This yumminess is like chex mix married muddy buddies. It is such a tasty treat, I dare you to eat just a little bit! My kids mixed in sprinkles, conversation hearts, and red M&MS. However, you could mix in any red and pink candies….they came up with a list, just in case you needed some help.
- Red M&Ms
- Twizzler Bites (not gluten free)
- Red Skittles
- Conversation hearts
- Red & Pink Runts
- Red & Pink Jelly Beans
- Red & Pink Mike & Ikes
- Valentine candy corn
You need to mix up a batch of this and give it a try! It’s so good!
