Valentine's Snack Mix

This snack mix looks like it would be overly sweet but it's not.  There are a lot of non-sweet items mixed in so it creates a nice balance especially with the slightly tart freeze dried strawberries.







Valentine's Snack Mix

6 cups popped popcorn
3 cups Crispix
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 oz package of freeze dried strawberries
2 cups white chips
1 tbsp canola oil
1 cup Valentine's M&M's

In a large roaster, place the popcorn, Crispix, peanuts and strawberries.  In a small saucepan, melt together the white chips and canola oil, stirring until smooth.  Pour mixture over the popcorn mix and stir to coat evenly.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes before stirring in M&M's.  Allow to cool completely before breaking gently into small pieces.  Store in an airtight container.
