Growing up in the 60s and 70s I only remember the savory version of Chex mix my mother made for Christmas parties. Now, if you look on Pinterest you will find all sorts of recipes using Chex brand cereals – both sweet and savory. Phoebe and I enjoyed making up our own version recently – using two different Chex varieties – rice and peanut butter, tossing in pink, red and white M&Ms, the cutest XO pretzels I found from Utz, valentine sprinkles, and melted white chocolate bark.

I set it all up on the table with all my vintage serving pieces – a red bowl for the mix, a glass serving spoon tied with a ribbon on the end, bowls of red hots (who knew red hots are so hard to find right now!) and M&Ms. I stacked two milk glass cake stands and set red and gold muffin cup liners, I found at the Dollar-ish store, filled with the Chex mix. The little sign I found in the dollar section Target a few seasons ago. This table display is perfect for book club, Bunko, or right by the front door for guests to enjoy when they stop by to say, Hello! Valentine.

Here are fun recipes from some of the most well-known creatives I follow on Instagram to help you create your own Cupid’s Crunch:
