Pinteractive: Cupid's Crunch

For my first Pinteractive post, I'm excited to share this delicious Valentine's Chex Mix I whipped up, based on this pin. I remember seeing a similar recipe somewhere, called Cupid's Crunch, which I think is a cuter name so that's what I'm going with.

Here's what you need.

9 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 cup white vanilla baking chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup red, white and pink candy-coated chocolate candies (I ended up adding another 1/2 cup, fyi, but add according to your own taste)
1/4 cup red or pink sprinkles

Ingredients
Gather your ingredients. 

Ingredients + assistant
Optional: Enlist an adorable assistant.

Rice Chex
Place cereal in large bowl.

Butter, white chocolate chips
Place white chocolate chips, butter and peanut butter in microwavable bowl.

Melted
Melt in microwave for 1-1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.

Mixed
Add melted mixture to cereal. Mix well.

Bored
Don't get discouraged when adorable assistant decides not to help.

Divided
Place half of cereal in 1-gallon ziplock bag. Add powdered sugar.

Shake it up
Discover that your adorable assistant is suddenly excited to help again.

Shake face
Put on your best "shake face" and shake, shake, shake.

Candies
Add chocolate candies to non-powdered half of cereal.

Sprinkles
Add sprinkles to non-powdered half of cereal. Mix well. 

Spread & cool
Spread out both mixtures on foil or wax paper, and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes.

All mixed up!
Once cooled, mix both halves of cereal together. Voila! 

Optional: Pack 3/4ths of it up for your husband to take to his office. It's sinfully delicious!

  3. Fun project- especially with a little one. I have such fond memories of being in the kitchen with my mom when I was a kid.

    I joined! I defaulted to recipes but I really want to try a craft project. This is an on going challenge, right?

  6. That looks yummy but what I really want to comment on is how adorable Em looks in her fabulous apron. Where did you get that apron?

    1. Thanks! It was a gift, an adorable little set from Target with a matching hat (that she refuses to wear), oven mitt, pot holder, and spatula. It's not really made for actual cooking/baking, so it's in the toy aisle.
