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.

How To Make Cupid’s Crunch Recipe!

I also love any excuse to use heart sprinkles and this Cupid’s Crunch is perfect for that!

It’s like your classic muddy buddies but uses white chocolate to coat the Chex instead of milk chocolate. There’s also peanut butter mixed into the white chocolate because, duh.

  • Put Chex cereal in a mixing bowl
  • Melt white chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter together 
  • Pour chocolate mixture over cereal, stirring until everything is coated
  • Put half the cereal mixture in a plastic bag filled with powdered sugar and shake until coated; spread out on wax paper and let cool 
  • Mix M&Ms and sprinkles with the other cereal mixture; spread out on wax paper and let cool
  • Combine both cereal mixtures in a large serving bowl
