Cupid Crunch, the white chocolate coated cereal pretzel mix that is perfect for Valentine’s Day. It brings salty and sweet to a whole new level!
Y’all Valentine’s Day is in exactly six days, and I made cupid crunch last Thursday. It. is. all. gone. (insert your sad faces here) Seriously. There are all sorts of candy coated cereal mixes around, but this one is the best. It’s made with white chocolate, not some sort of white colored candy melts. It’s made with rice cereal squares, M&M’s, chunks of pretzels, because sweet and salty are best friends, and SPRINKLES!! Not just any sprinkles though, heart shaped sprinkles!
This is so simple to make, and you can honestly have it made in less than 5 minutes. (without the drying time – add an additional 10 minutes for that) Yep, Cupid Crunch can be all yours in a matter of 15 minutes. You’ll love it, your friends will love it, your kids will love it, their friends will love it, and then you won’t have any left, and you’ll be like me, 6 days before Valentine’s Day making more.
This recipe is super similar to a recipe that I used to make years ago for Kelsie’s class parties during Halloween and Christmas. Of course it was not called Cupid Crunch! I stopped making that after all of the food allergies that Kelsie was diagnosed with, and this is the first sort of “re”-mix that I decided to try out. So far so good.
You could totally change out the M&M’s to other holiday colors and the sprinkles to reflect something different, and you would have a awesome whatever crunch or any other fun name you could think of, for any holiday!
