I adore Valentines Day.
I really do.

I think it’s partially because I love pink so much.
Weird, I know.

But pink M&M’s?

I couldn’t narrow down my list of cutesy, yummy things to make in honor of V-day to just one, so we started celebrating this weekend.

Not good for the diet.

But whatever.
Wednesday’s coming in all of its harsh reality soon enough.

Until then I’m going to swim in pink M&M’s.

So anyway, I found this recipe for Oreo Crust Mix, but we aren’t big Oreo fans so I made a few modifications and here’s what we ended up with:

Valentine Brownie Crust Mix

So, so yummalicious.

What you’ll need:
Brownie mix (small pouch would work great)
3 cups Chex cereal (I used rice)
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup Valentine (very important, because who wants the boring plain colors) M&M’s

Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, stirring every thirty seconds, until smooth.
Mix the Chex together with the melted chocolate until well coated. Spread on wax paper to dry.

Make the brownie mix according to directions on pouch/box.
Cool, then cut the crust into small bite-size chunks. (You could use all of the brownies, but I like the chewy crust part best.)
Combine the chex, brownie chunks, and M&M’s in a bowl or divide into individual servings to hand out as Valentine treats.

My original plan was to package this up and have the girls hand them out to their little friends at church.
But it didn’t make it until Sunday.

My bad.
Shouldn’t have made it Friday….obviously.

So we made something else for the girlies.
But that’s for another post.
