Valentine’s Peanut Butter Chex Mix

Chex mix is an American classic snack to munch on. I recently discovered other methods to make Chex Mix, and fell in love with this festive red, white and pink peanut butter delight. It is so easy, quick and cheap to make. I made sure to theme this for Valentine’s day and gave it out in goody bags. This is a fun treat to make with the whole family because everyone can contribute!
