Quick and easy Chex Mix made with conversation hearts, sprinkles and is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

I decided to make a quick and easy Chex Mix that has lots of conversation hearts and heart sprinkles. This pink Chex Mix is sweet, sticky, and just right for snacking.

This is the perfect thing for Valentine’s Day. It would travel to a party well or would be really cute in some decorated bags.

I love that it makes a bunch and is adorable without taking a lot of time and effort. Plus it’s pink! Really, what’s not to love?

  1. I’ve been craving chex mix. This looks yummy. Also, I saw you at BYBC and meant to talk to you. I didn’t want to interrupt a convo you had going on but I should have cause I ended up leaving early. We met at a slc cookie swap a year or so ago, I still think about those yummy chocolate covered peppermint homemade oreo cookies!

    Hope all is well!
