While these are Valentine’s Day themed due to the fun pink, red and white M&M’s, you could switch it up for holidays like Christmas using the red/green M&M’s, Easter with the Pastel M&M’s or Halloween using Reese’s Pieces. This treat is so versatile and you can have lots of fun putting so many different goodies into it.
