Toddler Friendly Valentines Day Treat!

I love February and Valentines Day! I have so many craft ideas spinning through my head, I don’t know where to start. 🙂 I haven’t gotten to all of them yet, but this awesome recipe popped up in my Pinterest feed a few weeks ago and I had to try it! (With a few modifications of course).

Full disclosure the original intent of this was to be a super healthy toddler snack and then I went to Target and got side tracked by pink M&Ms and Teddy Grahams so its now considered semi-healthy. The good news is the girls love it and its a nice balance of sweet and salty for a little heart healthy treat. 

Ingredients: 

– 2 cups dried cherries, craisins or cranberries
– 2 cups yogurt covered raisins (I used dark chocolate)
– 3 cups of Teddy Grahams (I used honey flavored, you could also try dark chocolate)
– 4 cups of mini pretzels
– 4 cups of chocolate Chex 
– 2 cups pink/red M&Ms
Simply combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix. The girls seem to love the raisins and Teddy Grahams the best. I prefer the M&Ms and chocolate Chex. (Chocolate Chex might be the best invention ever! AND its gluten free!)  The pretzels give the mix a nice balance. Its cute, colorful and a fun treat! 

The treats fueled us to do a few other Pinterest projects including our homemade Olaf hearts and my favorite, a cute re-writeable picture frame.

This frame is from Target and I simply picked out some fun paper and wrote the “i love you because…” message. You can then use any dry erase marker to leave messages. I have this in our master bathroom so on crazy days we can remind each other that sometimes its the little things that make a difference. 
I hope you and your family have a Happy Valentines Day!

I am loving my morning reading habit. Just finished my third book since starting this habit through Miracle Morning that you suggested! I love my morning (me) time. I actually am more productive throughout the day, am eating better, staying more positive, and sleeping so much better. I love the changes because of Miracle Morning and you! I have decided to start a new business. Wow! I wasn't even thinking that going in. I just have opened my mind and listened to my heart and decided to go after what I want. Life changing!

I am incredibly grateful that a friend recommended I connect with Holly! I was struggling to lose weight after having my first child and didn't know how to accomplish my goals while balancing other life commitments. Being part of Holly's support has given me the tools to succeed and it has been truly life-changing. Over a year and a half later, I still enjoy the connections with Holly's group and continued support to keep things fresh and to keep working on "being at my best."
