Valentine's Day Mix

Gluten Free Valentine Chex® Mix


  • 9 c Rice Chex® Mix
  • 1 c white chocolate almond bark
  • 1/2 c peanut butter
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 3/4 c powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c red, white and pink candy-coated chocolate candies
  • 1/4 c red or pink jimmies/sprinkles



Place cereal in a large bowl. In small microwavable bowl, microwave baking chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Place 1/2 of the cereal mixture in 1-gallon food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, stir candies and sprinkles into remaining cereal mixture. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool, about 15 minutes. In serving bowl, mix both cereal mixtures. Store in airtight container.

*Additional Ideas*

Look for decorated cellophane bags in craft or paper goods stores. Fill bags with mix and tie with festive ribbons for a Valentine’s Day gift.

Dip the top of a flat bottomed ice cream cone in melted white chocolate, and then dip in red or pink sprinkles. Let chocolate harden and then fill cones with mix.
