I wasn't sure if technically this should be called "Valentine Chex Mix". I did use their recipe, but, did not use actual Chex cereal.
The store brand worked just as well and was a bit cheaper. Also, to call this Valentine, does apply to this time of year, but, you could add any color M & M's (or chocolate coated candies) and eat it for any holiday, special occasion or just to snack on during movie night at your house.
This is a an easy recipe to throw together and with a bit of help...a snap for kids to do too.
