Sweetheart Buddies

These little sweetheart buddies are sure to be a hit with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day! They are chocolatey, crunchy, and sweet. What a wonderful take on the classic Muddy Buddies! I had no idea that there is a such thing as chocolate Chex cereal. What rock have I been living under? Not only is it great as a cereal, it’s perfect in sweet treat mixes like this one!

Sweetheart BuddiesSweetheart Buddies are fun to make and just as fun to eat. Make a double batch because they won’t last long.

One of my other favorite lovey-dovey day treats are red velvet Rice Krispies treats. Also try my chocolate chocolate chip caramel bars.
