Strawberry Valentine Chex Mix

Nothing says "I love you" like a salty and sweet treat! Check out this fun and easy recipe that can be made in bulk, making it easy for you to share the love!


  • 4 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 8 oz. Bag strawberry candy melts
  • 1/2 tsp. Shortening
  • Valentine M&M’s and/or sprinkles

Measure out Chex cereal into a large bowl. Pour chocolate into a small glass dish. Add 1/2 teaspoon shortening to help the chocolate coat the cereal easier. Microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds. Let sit in the microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and gently stir. If chocolate loves its shape and looks smooth, it’s done.  If not, return to the microwave in 15 second increments, letting it sit for 2-3 minutes each time, until melted and smooth. Transfer cereal mixture to a large piece of wax paper. Sprinkle with M&M’s and Valentine sprinkles as desired. Let cool to set. Break pieces and store in an airtight container to save.
