It’s that time of the year when my kids want to make special treats for Valentine’s Day to take to school. So Mommy has to come up with some creative ideas! This year we have a few fun ones for you to try, enjoy!
Let’s face it Valentine’s Day is such a great time to make some yummy treats with the kids. Here are some tasty treats that don’t take long to make at all.
Sprinkles Marshmallow Pops
10-ounce bag of strawberry marshmallows
8 ounces of unsweetened chocolate
6 tablespoons of chocolate or rainbow sprinkles
Push one lollipop stick through one marshmallow, continue for each marshmallow pop you want to make. Melt the unsweetened chocolate for a minute in the microwave, then at 20-second intervals until completely melted. Dip one marshmallow pop at a time into the melted chocolate and allow for excess to drip off. Then, roll the pops into the sprinkles and place in the freezer for 4-5 minutes to set.
Red Velvet Popcorn
2 ounces of softened cream cheese
1 tablespoon of corn syrup
½ cup of powdered sugar
¾ teaspoon of vanilla extract
7 cups of popped popcorn
4 unfrosted red velvet cupcakes, broken into small pieces
Using a mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, corn syrup, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Using a hand mixer, mix ingredients until they resemble a creamy glaze. Add in the popped popcorn and red velvet cupcake pieces. Using a spatula, combine ingredients until mixed well. Then, spread the mixture out on a baking sheet, lined with wax paper, and allow to harden for 15-20 minutes.
