Valentine's Candy Coated Trail Mix- New Food Friday


Want to make a sweet treat for your loved ones this Valentine's Day? I have got a great recipe for you. This candy coated trail mix is delicious and has some healthy aspects to it too!

Almost any ingredients that you use in trailmix would work with this but this is what I used:

Candy Coated Trail Mix
1/2 box Wheat Chex
1/2 bag pretzel twists
1 small container peanuts
1 bag Valentine's M&M (milk chocolate)
1 standard package of Candy Quick coating- vanilla flavored
red food coloring

Mix all the ingredients except the Candy coating and food coloring in large bowl.

Melt Candy Coating per instructions on package and add food coloring to make it pink.

I added the candy coating in two batches- just dump melted coating on top of trail mix and stir until it is evenly coated. Lay flat on aluminum foil or wax paper coated cookie sheets to let dry.


Once it is dried you can enjoy!!
Place in cute Valentine's baggies or serve out of the bowl.
After I did this I thought some dried cranberries or raisins would have been delicious in this too! Might have to try it again!


I will be linking to some of these parties!
Thanks for stopping by!

This looks so good. I'll bet that I could eat the whole pan in no time if I didn't pay attention to what I was doing.
