Easy Valentine Snack Mix

This Valentine white chocolate Chex mix is one of the easiest Valentine’s Day desserts! It’s a recipe that my kids love to make and a great dessert for little kids to help with. It would also be a great recipe to bring to a class party or package up for gifting.

I adapted this recipe from my Christmas Chex mix, but used pink and red Valentine M&M’s instead. It’s a great no-bake dessert to have on hand for when you need something quick!

For a variation on this snack mix you could drizzle melted chocolate over the top. For extra crunch you could also add in nuts or raisins. Another fun addition would be to add Valentine heart sprinkles. Make sure to add while the chocolate is still wet.

Variation

If you prefer milk chocolate over white, try making Valentine Chex muddy buddies instead. They’re made with the classic mixture of Chex cereal, chocolate chips, peanut butter and powdered sugar. Then mix in the festive Valentine M&M’s!

Gifting Valentine Chex Mix

This chex mix is perfect for gifting. Here are a few simple ideas for packaging.

  • Place a cup or two in a clear plastic bag. Tie the bag with red ribbon or bakers twine.
  • Have your kids write Valentine notes on a paper bag and add heart stamps or stickers. Then place the chex mix in the bag and staple together. You could also punch two holes in the top and thread a ribbons through the top.
  • Add the mix to a small canister or box and add a bow on top.

How to Store Valentines Chex

  • Allow Valentine chex mix to cool and harden before storing, so that it doesn’t stick together. You could place in the freezer to speed up the process. Once it has hardened, you can break the pieces apart.
  • Once cooled, place in a zip top bag or covered container.
  • Store on the counter for up to one week or place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
