Ingredients

  • 2 cups Corn Chex® cereal
  • 1 cup miniature pretzel twists
  • 2 cups Rice Chex® cereal
  • 2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios® (or plain Cheerios) cereal
  • 1 bag Valentine's M&M's® (red, white, pink)
  • 3 and 1/4 cups white chocolate chips (just under 2 bags)
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vegetable or canola oil
  • Optional: Valentine sprinkles

Instructions

  • PREP: Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • COMBINE: In a very large bowl, combine the Corn Chex, miniature pretzel twists, Rice Chex, Honey Nut Cheerios, and 1 cup Valentine's M&M's. Stir to combine.
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE: In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, combine 3 cups of white chocolate chips and 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir for 15 seconds and then microwave another 15 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. If needed, return to the microwave for a little longer. (Bursts of 15 seconds stirring for 10 seconds in between each burst). Pour the melted and smooth white chocolate over the snack mix.
  • COMBINE: Working quickly, gently stir until all ingredients are coated in white chocolate and then quickly transfer to the prepared baking sheet and spread into one even layer. Immediately add the remaining Valentine's M&Ms on top and optional sprinkles. OPTIONAL STEP: Melt the last 1/4 cup white chocolate chips in the microwave and then transfer them to a small plastic bag. Cut the tip off the bag and pipe stripes across the white chocolate snack mix.
  • FIRM UP: Allow white chocolate to firm up and harden at room temperature or place in the fridge until firm, about 10-20 minutes. Break into pieces and serve.

    My kids and my husband are so into this! I made it and they are raving about it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  2. 5 stars
    Super great! very excited to give this out as a valentine’s day treat. I do think that 2.5 cups of white chocolate would be just as good! A little too chocolatey for me (even though I love chocolate)

  3. 4 stars
    This is super easy to make! If you’re at a higher altitude, you will need to increase the oil to 2 teaspoons. Other than that I didn’t have a problem. Also I used the double boiler method to melt my chocolate and that worked beautifully!

    1. 8 servings in this recipe, so the entire batch divided equally into 8 parts; each part is 370 calories 🙂 (I don’t have weighed out final amounts)
