Valentine's Day Mix!

I love all the Valentine's Day Treats that are floating around pinterest,
but when I saw this post by my friend Natalie over at Johnny in a Dress,
I knew this was the one I wanted to try!

It's simple.
and delicious.
and perfect for those little {grimy} toddler fingers!

Natalie said it kept her daughter Harper entertained for 30 minutes ....
and you see, her Harper and my Wild Man - they are one in the same --
Adorable, Feisty and BUSY! Very, very busy.
But she was right, Nelson LOVED "helping" mommy make this!

First I gathered my ingredients ...
- Multi-grain Cheerio's
- Mini Marshmallows
- Valentine's Day M&M's.
- Strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats

Her original recipe didn't have the Frosted Mini Wheats - but I really wanted more pink! Hey, don't judge. I live in a house of boys, I have to enjoy pink when and where I can.
and February is one of those months! :)

I put them in separate bowls for Wild Man.

and then asked him to "help me" put them in the BIG jar! 
(we are working on the difference between big and little)

He's not the most efficient worker, haha.
He took a LOT of breaks to eat the ingredients!
But hey, that's part of the fun!

We also used this as a lesson in working with different sized spoons and scoops.
I used a regular spoon, a 1/4 cup measuring cup and a big stirring spoon.

This snack is so yummy, I caught myself snacking on it all day!
and of course, Wild Man LOVED it too!

  1. Awesome idea! I love your addition of the frosted mini wheats! Thanks so much for posting this--I did it tonight with my six-year-old niece (while the little nine-month-old watched) and she loved it!! I'll be bringing some into work for my co-workers for Valentine's Day!!
