Valentine’s Day Recipe- Cereal Mix AKA CUPID LOVE MIX

Who says you can’t have chocolate for breakfast? Well maybe not for breakfast, but when you mix cereal and chocolate it is a combination you can have it for snacks and dessert. Maybe on Valentine’s Day you can indulge for breakfast, it has nuts as protein at least:)

This is a fun recipe that you can really customize with any ingredients your kids or guests will eat. It makes a good amount so be willing to share! My 11 year old daughter did this recipe almost completely by herself.

 I thought these would be great party favors for any party. Just change the M and M colors to match your theme. Fill them in cute little baking cups and even wrap them in cellophane bags for a party take away. Does not get any cuter than this.

We bagged a bunch of the Cereal mix in a larger cellophane bag for a hostess gift for the kids we were visiting last weekend. 


I would be thrilled to get this, wouldn’t you?

We have not come up with a catchy name for this mix recipe, have any ideas? Thanks ladies think we are going with CUPID LOVE MIX ….
