Hearts, cards, and cupids– love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, so are school parties and celebrations. If you need some Valentine’s treat ideas to bring to your next gathering, look no further! Here are some tasty treats that you’ll fall in love with.
We all know that chocolate is a staple item for Valentine’s snacks, but did you know you could make a chocolatey treat with ingredients you probably already have in your house? Simply combine crushed Oreos with cream cheese until it forms a doughy consistency. Form balls that can fit in the palm of your hand, and stick them in the fridge on a parchment paper-lined tray for a while. Once they’re cold, heat up your favorite kind of chocolate (dark, milk, or white) in the microwave with a touch of oil until it forms a silky liquid. Using a fork, dip the balls in the chocolate to cover them and then set them back on a tray and into the fridge. If you’re feeling extra fancy, add some pink and red sprinkles or a drizzle of colored icing! Once cooled, your Oreo balls will be a hit.
Chocolate Strawberry Hearts
This sweet twist on the classic chocolate-covered strawberries is a fun and easy way to make a heart-shaped treat with your kids. Heat up your favorite kind of chocolate (dark, milk, or white) in the microwave with a touch of oil until you have a silky consistency. Take your strawberries and cut out the stem into the middle using a V formation. Then stick your strawberry through with a stick, and dip the top of the “heart” into your melted chocolate. Then leave it to cool on a parchment paper-lined tray in your fridge. Voila!
Rice Crispy Valentine Hearts
Rice crispy treats are one of the easiest desserts to make with little ones. Simply microwave marshmallows with butter and mix to combine with toasted rice cereal (specific instructions are usually on the box). Once your rice crispy treats are made, use a greased heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out hearts. Then microwave white chocolate chips with a touch of oil until melted. Stir in a drop of red food coloring so your white chocolate turns pink. Dip your rice crispy hearts in the chocolate and set to cool on a parchment paper-lined tray in your fridge. Once again, feel free to add fun sprinkles to make it cute!
Chocolate Raspberry Snacks
Crunched for time? One of the simplest Valentine’s snacks you can make are these chocolate raspberry bites. Simply wash and dry raspberries, and then place a dark chocolate chip in the middle of each. Yum!
