Valentine Snack Mix


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!
