If there aren’t sweets involved, is it even Valentine’s Day? I was looking for a quick snack activity to do with my kiddos [Lauren here, hi!], who are 2 and 5, and this was the perfect hands on way to get them involved. And when I say hands on, I mean they continued to stick their sweet little hands in and pull M&Ms out as we were making it. But I just think that means it was made with love *wink*.
So add these ingredients to your grocery list, whip up a batch of Sweetheart Mix with the sweethearts in your life! Enjoy!

As one of LIY’s Content Creators, Lauren also doubles as our Amazon Queen and her Facebook posts are the reason why we’ve all hit checkout more times on Prime in the past year than we’ve told our significant other “I love you”. With dreams of living on the water [an inflatable pool is currently keeping said dream alive] and a deep appreciation to 2000’s hip hop, Lauren is always up for an adventure while secretly hoping she can hang out in the tub with a glass of wine.
