Valentine Coconut Almond Chex Mix

Treat your Valentine right with this easy and oh-so-decadent Valentine Coconut Almond Chex Mix.   It is colorful, crunchy, salty, and sweet – did we get all your taste sensations there?

The recipe really is simple, and I like that I can save on the ingredients by shopping sales this time of year and/or using coupons. The coconut adds a tropical feel, and since I was married in Hawaii, that always reminds me of love.

Kids will have fun finding their favorite saying on a conversation heart – and everyone will enjoy eating this one. Give it as a gift to friends, neighbors, teachers or family – and don’t forget to make enough for you to enjoy it, too.

  • That is just about too cute to eat. I could see the kids loving helping to make it too.

  • Those little hearts are fun and kids do get a kick out of finding that special message just for them. I love that almonds are added as that would make these really great tasting.
