A month ago, I had ambitious plans for Valentine’s Day treats – plans that involved hours of baking and decorating. Somewhere over the course of a month, real life snuck in, and I just flat ran out of time. So, I improvised. Valentine Snack Mix is fast and festive! If you stop at the market tonight for just a few ingredients, you’ll be able whip up a treat in no time! Have fun!
Ingredients (Makes enough snack mix for a classroom or office break room)
1 pound bag of pretzel twists
1 bag of white vanilla candy melts (sold by cake decorating supplies) or white baking chips
Red sugar crystals
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 bag of red gumdrops or other small, red candy
Step 1) Melt the candy melts or white baking chips in the microwave. Stir every 30 seconds until fully melted.
Step 2) Dip tops of pretzels in melted white chocolate. Then, dip into red sugar crystals. Allow to harden on baking sheets.
Step 3) Mix together pretzels, chocolate chips, and gumdrops. Serve in a large bowl, or in individual muffin liners.

How many of those did you make for your pint sized valentines and their classmates?
I actually made these for my favorite tax accountant and his office mates. 🙂 I made about 50 of them.
