Easy Homemade Trail Mix - Valentine Snack + Printable Tags!

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.)
  • Voila!

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!

    Cute idea but when I used the template I was not able to simply fold the paper in half and cut. It required a lot more cutting to get the right size. Maybe the template is off slightly, the images did not seem to be centered on the top and bottom of the paper.

      Hi Amy! Hmmm… let me take a look.

        I am having the same template difficulty as Amy. Also, I would like to insert a girl image to send the treats to my daughter’s class. May you please send me your original template? Thank you so much for sharing your idea and template. My daughter is very excited to take these treats to school!

    Hi! I just made this cute Valentine trail mix and it’s adorable! Thanks for the free printable and the recipe. I had to tweak a few things since I couldn’t find a couple exact items in my grocery, but close enough. So fun! Just wanted to say THANKS!

    These are lovely and the snack mix is awesome, but the tags are such a waste of paper, I cut off more than I used.

    • Sommerposted February 8, 2014 at 3:33 pm Reply

      Hey Chris,

      Both are supposed to be on one sheet–not sure what happened! I’ll see if I can change it back for future users.

  12. Victoriaposted January 25, 2014 at 5:25 pm Reply

    Can I ask how many snack bags you were able to make with these ingredients?

    Also, what program did you use to make those adorable tags?


    • Sommerposted January 26, 2014 at 9:58 pm Reply

      Hi Victoria, about 34 1/2 cup servings.

      Honestly, I think I just pulled the graphics into a word doc!
