Cupid Trash


Happy Valentine’s Day!  Or “Singles Awareness Day”.  Whichever you celebrate on February 14th, you deserve a snack, don’t you think?

This one is pretty good.  A bunch of goodies drizzled with white chocolate.  Similar to the Christmas Trash recipes you see on Pinterest, but with a love theme.  Plus, the conversations hearts just need a little something extra to make them fully edible, don’t they?

Those little things just sit there in a bowl, acting all innocent while they judge you.  “Hot Stuff”, “Be True”, “So Fine”, “Kiss Me”… then you get the one that says, “Got Cha!”  Like it was all a joke.  Fine!  You know what, conversation hearts? In my tummy, that’s what!  That’ll teach you to mock me….

Where was I?  Oh, yes.  Cupid Trash.  It’s really good.  So try it! Your Valentine, even if the Valentine is your dog, will enjoy it.  PROMISE!

  • 3 cups Rold Gold Tiny Twist pretzels
  • 2 cups Vanilla Cupcake Gold Fish
  • 2 cups Quaker Whole Hears cereal
  • 2 cups conversation hearts
  • 1 package Chocolate Cherry M&Ms
  • 2 cups roasted unsalted almonds
  • 2 cups roasted peanuts
  • 2 (12 oz.) packages white chocolate
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  1. Line two large cookie sheets with wax paper or foil.  Mix all ingredients except chocolate and coconut oil in a large bowl.  Divide between the two cookie sheets and spread out as much as possible.
  2. Melt white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, one package at a time, following the package instructions.  Once melted, stir in 1 Tbsp coconut oil.
  3. Dizzle chocolate over the mixture on the cookie sheet, one batch of melted white chocolate per sheet.  I poured my chocolate into a gallon size zip top bag and snipped the tip to drizzle.  It worked pretty well!
  4. Let sit a few hours to harden, then break into pieces (careful not to break any hearts, ha!).
