The Busy Girl’s Valentine’s Day Snack Box

Today, we’re sharing a quick and easy Valentine’s Day Snack Box! 

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I would share another project for those of you looking for a super simple and totally doable idea.

This Valentine’s Day inspired snack box is another easy way to fill the Valentine’s Day Gift Container we shared earlier this week. It can also be created in an afternoon with just a few store-bought supplies.

Here’s a look at how you can make these delicious sweets too…

Valentine’s Day Snack Box Supplies: 

  • Candy Melts (we chose red & white vanilla flavor but you can choose the flavors and colors you like best.)
  • Cookies (we used Pepperidge Farm Raspberry and Chocolate Cookies but you can choose the cookies you like best just make sure they’re sturdy cookies. The soft cookies we tried didn’t hold up very well.)
  • Pretzels (we used these pretzel crisps but pretzel rods would also work well.)
  • Strawberries (make sure they’re washed and completely dry prior to working with candy melts.)
  • Graham Crackers
  • Special Toppings, optional
  • Wax Paper
  • Cookie/Baking Sheet
  • Microwave-Safe Bowl (you’ll need one bowl for each color or flavor you choose to use.)

Valentine’s Day Snack Box Steps: 

Before you get started, place a piece of wax paper on a cookie/baking sheet.

Add candy melts (depending on how much you need) to a microwave-safe bowl and

follow the directions on the back of the bag.

Once the candy melts come out of the microwave, you may need to stir them just a bit before dipping your favorite cookies or fruit into the mix…

Add toppings if desired then set aside on wax paper to cool

.Keep in mind, if you want to add special toppings you’ll need to put them on the Valentine treat prior to the candy melts cooling or the toppings will fall off.

We tried Dutch chocolate dust,

cookies and cream,

salted caramels,

toffee crunch,

and plain.

Line your DIY Valentine’s Gift Container with wax or parchment paper prior to placing the treats into the box.

No playing you guys, this process couldn’t be easier and there are so many flavor combinations to try.

You can make a Valentine’s Snack Box for your family and friends, teachers, neighbors, coworkers, or anyone you care about in an afternoon.

It’s a simple way to let them know how much you appreciate them this Valentine’s Day or any day, really.

And bonus, these are so easy, they’re Busy Girl approved!

Let us know if you’re making a Valentine’s Day Snack Box and what kind of sweet treats you plan to put inside! Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

  1. These look really good CoCo. I’m excited they were easy to make. Where did you find these candy melts?

    1. I think your girls are old enough to help you with these too, Sarah, they’re so good. I found all of these supplies at our local Walmart if you can believe it. The candy melts were less than $2 per bag but I’m not sure if that price is good everywhere or not. Hugs, CoCo

  2. I love a good box full of carbs and chocolate for Valentine’s Day. These are super cute and look so easy to make. It might be a fun project to do with kids. 🙂

    1. Girl, I love chocolates any time of the year but I swear there is something about getting some on Valentines Day that make them seem extra special 🙂 Your kids could definitely do these just make sure the bowl has had a chance to cool a bit when it comes out of the microwave. Hugs, CoCo

    1. That is so exciting, Barb! I’m definitely a practical person so I’m always looking for “double duty gifts” that can be enjoyed throughout the year. Plus, it’s been fun to find ways to leave a quick and easy “thinking of you” gift on the porch of a loved one. Especially, given everything we’ve experienced with covid. Sometimes it’s the smallest gift that makes the biggest impact. Hugs, CoCo
