Have you ever tried puppy chow before? Well, if so you’re really going to want to try Cupid’s Crunch because this takes puppy chow to the next level.

I don’t know about you but I am a sucker for sweets.

Like, addicted.

Which, of course, was why I finally had to get on an eating plan that would work for me. And, by the way, I am happy to say I am now down 24 pounds! But, we are not here to talk about losing weight. Especially if we are going to talk about the amazingness that is Cupid’s Crunch. LOL

I made this concoction of goodness for the family to snack on while watching the Super Bowl. And, while we are talking about the Super Bowl, what did you think about the halftime show? In my opinion…..LAME! I like his songs but I was not impressed at all. After all, it is supposed to be a performance right? I just saw a bunch of men running around wearing jock straps on their heads. NO.THANKS!! LOL I personally miss the days of Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, New Kids on the Block and Beyonce. Now, those were performances. J Lo and Shakira were pretty good as well.

I digress….

Now, onto the real subject at hand. Cupid’s Crunch is a slight variation on the original and super yummy puppy chow we all know and love. You start with the same ingredients as puppy chow that are posted on the box of Chex cereal. Then , you add M&M’s and festive Valentine’s sprinkles.

Super easy right? And I promise you, everyone will LOVE it! Every time my son comes home from college this is his first request. I may even have to make a batch and take it with me when I see him in a couple of weeks. I’m sure he won’t mind at all! LOL

Have a great day friends and be blessed!
