Valentine Love Mix
We made this Love Mix for Valentine’s Day and my kids loved it! We noticed that Quaker makes cereal in the shape of hearts and thought it would be cute mixed with pretzels and other goodies.

For the first one we used Quaker heart cereal, pretzels, peanuts, Valentine M&M’s, and alphabet crackers. We had the Kroger brand alphabet crackers (like animal crackers) and we picked out all of the X’s and O’s. We mixed everything else and we think it looked pretty cute!

For this one we just left out the X’s and O’s and replaced them with strawberry wafers to give it some more color. Either way is cute…just use what you have! You could also add melted white chocolate and mini candy hearts for a dessert. This is just something easy and fun for the kids to snack on!

Linking up to these awesome link parties…please check them out!
