3 Easy Valentines Day Desserts

Strawberry valentine chex mix

Ingredients

  • 4-6 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 8-oz bag Strawberry Candy Melts OR
  • 1 bag of white chocolate baking chips {12 oz} AND
  • 1 box of strawberry creme Jell-O Pudding** {pudding NOT gelatin!}
  • Valentines M&M’s and/or Sprinkles

Instructions

  • Measure out Chex cereal into a large bowl. Note: if you’re using the Strawberry Candy Melts, you’ll use 4 cups of cereal. If you’re using the white chocolate chips + pudding mix, you’ll use 6 cups of cereal.
  • Pour chocolate into a small glass dish. Add 1/2 tsp shortening, if desired, to help the chocolate coat the cereal easier. Microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds. Let sit in the microwave for 3 minutes. Remove and gently stir. If chocolate looks its shape and 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.
  • If you used white chocolate chips + pudding mix: add 4 TBSP of the strawberry creme pudding into the white chocolate and stir gently until smooth. Add 2 drops of red food coloring, if desired.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the Chex cereal and stir gently to coat.
  • Transfer cereal mixture to a large piece of wax paper. Sprinkle with M&M’s and Valentine’s 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!
