Easy Valentine’s Day Recipes to Make with the KidsIt’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
Lollipop sticks


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.


Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Milkshakes


1 ½ cups of vanilla ice cream
4 tablespoons of Red Velvet cake mix
2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
1 cup of milk


Using a blender, blend all ingredients together until smooth!

Easy Strawberry Fudge


1 16-ounce can of strawberry frosting
1 12-ounce bag of white chocolate chips


Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave, at 50% strength, for 30 seconds. Continue to heat at 20-second intervals in the microwave, until completely melted. Then, add in strawberry frosting and combine well. Spray a 9”X9” pan with cooking spray. Spread fudge mixture into pan and refrigerate for 20-25 minutes, to set. When set, cut into square pieces.
