Cupid Crunch - Chex Mix Candy for Valentine's Day from Megan & Wendy

Cupid Crunch


  • 3 cup Corn Chex
  • 3 cup Wheat Chex
  • 3 cup Rice Chex
  • 2 cup pretzel sticks
  • 2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 cup chocolate chips or Valentine's M&M Candies
  • 1 package Wilton Candy Melts (white or pink)


  • Combine all dry ingredients. If using chocolate chips, freeze the chocolate for about ten minutes before starting the recipe so that the chips don't melt when they come in contact with the candy coating.
  • Microwave your candy coating at 30 second intervals. This is the most fussy part of the process. Stir after each 30 seconds and be careful NOT to overmelt your candy or it will become unusable. Once the candy is melted, pour it over the mix and toss quickly to coat completely.
  • Pour the mix out on to a parchment lined baking sheet and allow to dry for one hour. After one hour, break candy apart and store in an airtight container.


You can use any combination of Chex that you prefer, as long as you use a total of nine cups. I typically use at least two variety for a variety of textures. 
You can omit any of the ingredients, like the nuts for allergies or preference, and just slightly bump up the quantity of the other items.
