Have you ever seen the movie Music & Lyrics with Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant? It’s one of my favorites. Hugh Grant plays a washed up singer who had a successful pop hit in the 80’s called “Pop! Goes My heart.” The music video is so great!

Believe it or not, that was the inspiration for this Valentine trail mix.


Cherry M&M’s
Cherry Craisins
Heart shaped chocolate pretzels
Kashi Honey Toasted heart shaped cereal

Sprinkle a few Cherry Pop Rocks on top to make it POP!

    Yummy! That looks absolutely someone-take-this-bowl-away-before-I-eat-it-all scrumptious!

    So pretty and delish looking! I just had cherry m&m’s for the first time last week and I liked them better than I thought I would, Never heard of cherry craisins though.

      Thanks! I’m not even a huge cherry fan, but I liked all the cherry in this too. And actually I thought I had picked up dried cherries, and then looked closer and realized they were cherry flavored craisins. Who knew??

      They’re only available (probably) during Valentine’s Day season so I had to scoop them up!

    Love the way this looks! i love the variety of things that you put in this mixture. It’s not like your typical pre-packaged trail mix. Pinning!

      Thanks for the great feedback! You’ve inspired me to create some more themed trail mixes!
