Homemade Trail Mix Valentine Snack + Printable Tags – After Monday’s post, Chocolate Pomegranate Petit Fours, which are very chic, yet very time consuming, I thought I’d post something quick and easy. No cooking or baking today; just a simple dump and stir homemade trail mix recipe that makes an exciting Valentine snack to send to school.
This Valentine snack is a great filler for goodie bags. Mix the homemade trail mix, scoop into snack-sized bags, then add a fun tag.
Generally, I’m NOT very crafty. The craftiest I get is making paper flowers for cupcake toppers or trying to paint fondant gnomes. So if I can create Valentine cards with my kids, YOU can make Valentine cards too!
For these sweet Valentine bag tags, I used clip art from Cocoa Mint, and online store that offers cute clean graphics and printable invitations, party supplies, and digital backgrounds. The clip art allowed me to FEEL crafty, when really all I did was cut and paste …with my mouse. Thanks Cocoa Mint!
You can make your own, or use mine. Either way, this Homemade Trail Mix Valentine Snack will be the hit of the party.
To Use My Tags:
- Click Here to Print. (Cardstock recommended.)
- Cut each sheet in half, then trim approximately 3/4 inch off each side to match the width of the snack bags.
- Fold each card in half and use glue dots or a stapler to attach them to the tops of the bags. (We also used a paper punch to round the corners.)
Homemade Trail Mix Valentine Snack makes a great Saturday project. The kids literally did everything from mixing to glue-dotting. They are SO excited to share these original Valentines with their friends.
This homemade trail mix has all the right ingredients for pure Valentine joy. I left out the nuts in traditional trail mix to keep it safe for the classroom, but the pretzels offer a salty bite to balance the sweetness. This is good stuff!
