  • Melt the pink candy melts, and then drizzle over the snack mix. Quickly add the remaining sprinkles before the candy sets.
  • Allow the snack mix to cool for about 30 minutes. Once the candy melts have set, break apart and serve. If storing the snack mix, do so in an airtight container or bag.
