Valentine’s Day Snack Mix

DSC_0163

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day!  This snack mix is a perfect Valentine’s Day treat.  I had so much fun making these!  I wish I had a child, so I could send he/she off to school with these to hand out to all of their classmates.  Some day, I’ll get to play mommy life, and I’ll love it.  But until then, I’ll make cute little snack packs for my husband and I.  Nah, we have to share with someone else!  I’m planning on dropping some off at my mom’s house and bringing some to work.  Eek, these just make me so happy!  Yes, I’m a nerd.  So, I almost went with raw almonds for a “healthier” version, but then I was thinking that it’s already loaded with chocolate, and gluten (from the pretzels) so why not pick something else that would be just a bit tastier.  I LOVE honey roasted peanuts, but never really eat them.  Those little puppies became the winner!

 

You can easily change the colored sprinkles, and M&M color to whatever season or holiday it is!  Christmas, Saint Patty’s, Fourth of July, the possibilities are endless!
