Valentine's Day Snack Mix ~ Popcorn, Peanuts and M&M's coated in White Almond Bark! An Easy Sweet Treat for Your Sweetie!

It’s still blustery and cold here in Minnesota. Is it June yet? Are you tired of me complaining? I’m sure you are so I made this yummy snack mix!

I saw the pink, red and white M&M’s and I knew I had to make something with them. I mean they were so happy looking and I need a little happy in my life right now to get me through the rest of this winter that is for sure!

Happy thoughts, warm thoughts, beach thoughts, ahhhh I just might make it through. Is is June yet?

This yummy snack mix is perfect for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day and is a play off my Monster Munch recipe. I figured I loved that stuff so why not put a Valentine’s spin on it?

Sweet snack mix, sweet giveaway…it’s all because I LOVE my readers. Truly I adore each of you. Without you I’d just be blabbing to myself, which I problem am sometimes, but don’t tell me ok! Have I told you my love for Thirty-One? I adore it. In fact I look like a walking advertisement most of the time. It’s usually because my fab sister-in-law always gives me great deals, which my hubby is thankful for and our bank account is too! So go enter the drawing and win this fab Zipper Pouch which is great for all kinds of things. I personally have diapers in it and wipes and it’s in Miss K’s diaper bag. So handy to grab and go!

Valentine’s Snack Mix

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 12

Serving Size: 1 cup

Valentine’s Snack Mix

Ingredients

  • 1 package almond bark (1 lb)
  • 12 c. popped popcorn (about 1/2 c. kernels)
  • 1 1/2 c. M&M's
  • 1 1/2 c. dry roasted, salted peanuts

Instructions

  1. Pop popcorn and place in a HUGE mixing bowl. The biggest you have. You’ll need it and it’s much easier to mix if you aren’t struggling to keep it in the bowl.
  2. Put the almond bark in a double boiler or microwave safe bowl and melt according to directions on the package. Be careful not to go to long without stirring it or it will get hard and not mix.
  3. Pour the melted almond bark over the popcorn and stir until everything is well coated. Spread out on waxed paper. Sprinkle M&M's and peanuts over mix before it cools. If you mix it right into the popcorn in the bowl the M&M's will start melting. Let sit until completely dry and then break into clumps.
