I’m sure I tell y’all this every year but Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. I love any excuse to put hearts up in every room of my house. And this year is even more exciting for me because I finally have a kid in school which means I finally have an excuse to buy those cute little cards. I don’t even know if my kid’s class is exchanging Valentine’s cards but you better believe I bought some as soon as they appeared on the shelves of my store. Because, lord knows, the last thing I need is for Walmart to run out of Power Rangers cards.
The only thing I’m not a big fan of on Valentine’s Day is cooking. I definitely believe in going out or getting McDonald’s or having my husband cook. Anything to get out of cooking and doing dishes on the big day. I did want to share this quick Cupid’s Crunch though because it’s so simple and so yummy.
It’s just like traditional muddy buddies but you use white chocolate instead of milk chocolate. Then once everything is good and coated in powdered sugar, you toss in some M&Ms and cute Valentine’s Day sprinkles.
- 4 1/2 Chex cereal
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup Valentine's Day M&Ms
- 2 tablespoons Valentine's Day sprinkles
Place cereal in medium bowl. In small microwavable bowl, microwave vanilla chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
Place 1/2 of the cereal mixture in 1-gallon food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil; cool about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir candies and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture. Spread on waxed paper or foil; cool about 15 minutes.
In serving bowl, mix both cereal mixtures. Store in airtight container.
