Strawberry Valentine Chex Mix

By Emily Burich

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this delicious strawberry valentine Chex mix makes the perfect snack to get in the caring spirit.  The beautiful pink color and festive sprinkles make it so much more perfect for this adoring holiday!  Enjoy with friends, family, or significant others.


  • 4 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 8- oz bag Strawberry Candy Melts
  • Valentines M&M’s and/or Sprinkles


  1. Measure out Chex cereal into a large bowl. 
  2. Pour candy melts into a small glass dish. Add 1/2 tsp shortening, if desired, to help the candy melt coat the cereal easier. Microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds. Let sit in the microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and gently stir. If the candy melts 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.
  3. Pour the candy melt mixture over the Chex cereal and stir gently to coat.
  4. Transfer cereal mixture to a large piece of wax paper. Sprinkle with M&M’s and Valentines sprinkles, if desired. Let cool to set. Break pieces and store in an airtight container to save. Candy can be made up to 3-4 days ahead, if desired. It saves well! Enjoy!
