Valentine Snack Mix

I love to throw together snack mixes, and I especially love a sweet and salty mix.  I know my kids will pick out the things they like, but I like a handful of everything mixed together.

This snack mix is a combination of:

1 cup Quaker Whole Hearts cereal (just found this at Target last week - yummy and perfect for Valentine's Day )
1 cup Annie's Bunny Graham crackers
1 cup Valentine m&m candies
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup Snyder's Butter Snap pretzels

In The Biggest Valentine Ever by Steven Kroll, Clayton and Desmond work together to make a Valentine for their teacher, but they end up arguing about it and decide to work alone.  After trying to make their own Valentines, they decide to work together again to make the biggest Valentine ever.  This book has a nice message for preschoolers and early elementary aged children.


  1. Looks yummy! I like The Biggest XXX series.

  2. I need to make some more snack mixes. I used to make them all the time in college.

  3. One thing my kids all love is a fun snack mix!
    I will have to make this one!

  4. We love that book. That heart cereal is adorable!

  5. My kids love snack mixes and this one is great! I love the Quaker Oats hearts. Fun find!
