Cupid Crunch

Cupid Crunch

Cupid Crunch…make it to pass out in your kids’ class, make it to share with neighbors or just make it because it’s almost Valentine’s Day and it would be delish.  Ashby had the best time making this with me.  She could hardly wait for it to dry, so we could dig in.  And my big kids were super pumped to come home from school to find it.

Cupid Crunch for your Valentines.

This recipe makes a big batch.

Shopping List
8 cups of Vanilla Chex cereal (you could also use Rice Chex)
8 oz of white candy coating or almond bark
1 (9 oz) bag of Valentine’s M&Ms
1 bag of Conversation Hearts (or I used 4 small boxes)
Valentine’s sprinkles

Lay wax paper down over your kitchen counters to pour your Cupid Crunch on when you’re finished assembling.

In a large mixing bowl, pour your cereal in.  Set aside.

In a microwavable bowl, melt your candy coating, stirring every 45 seconds.  Once it’s melted, quickly pour it over your Chex cereal and toss.  Quickly, stir in your M&Ms, Conversation Hearts and sprinkles.  Pour this down on to your wax paper and allow to cool about 10 minutes.  Once it’s dried, store it in an airtight container.

I mean…you can add whatever you want to this, but for Ashby and me, we thought Valentine’s M&Ms, Conservation Hearts and Valentine’s sprinkles were the perfect mix.

    This is a dumb question but what is white candy coating?

      It’s on the chocolate chip aisle. It is a white chocolate or milk chocolate that is made to melt and coat things (strawberries, pretzels, etc). You’ll typically find them in bars sold right there by the chocolate chips.
