Eva Amurri shares her Cupid's Crunch for Valentine's Day

We love a delicious holiday treat in our family, and nothing gets us going than making a sweet treat we can share with our even sweeter friends and family members! I’m super excited today to introduce you to my family’s Cupid Crunch treat mix! I know that some people make versions of this for Christmas time, but I prefer it for Valentine’s Day– mostly because the colors are just so festive, and because I’m usually on sugar overload during the Christmas season. This ends up being a really great no-bake cooking activity the kids and I can do together, and that makes for a wonderful little gifting opportunity. I even end up sending the kids to school with the bags as a little snack. If you make this, try taking it up a notch for movie night: one of my favorite movie snacks is a little of this mix, blended up with freshly popped Popcorn! SO delish. Let me know if you end up making this Cupid Crunch!
