How to Make My favorite Valentine’s Day Treats
Love is in the air, and it is almost time to make some Valentine’s Day treats. So let me share some of my favorite cookies and treats with you.
Today I am sharing a Pinterest challenge about Valentine’s Day treats with 15 other bloggers hosted by my friend Cindy @countyroad407.
Suppose you have come over from my friend Lora’s @lorabloomquist. Welcome. I am sure you loved her yummy post on meringue shells with chocolate fudge. I know I did.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, it’s time to get creative and make some of the most delicious treats for your family and friends. Whether you’re an experienced baker or a beginner, I have something special lined up for you that will surely put a sweet smile on everyone’s face: homemade Rice Krispie Treats! From unique decorations to delicious flavors, I’m sharing my favorite Valentine’s day treats that can be easily created with ingredients in almost any pantry. So grab those festive sprinkles, and let’s get baking!
Do you make treats for those you love for Valentine’s Day?
I have several granddaughters and one grandson. They would be crushed if I did not make them a few special treats for Valentine’s Day. And their favorite is Rice Krispie treats dipped in Chocolate. In addition, while I am at it, I dip just about anything I can find in the pantry in Chocolate.
What is a popular Valentine’s Day treat?
February 14th is a day of indulgence and love, so why not treat your loved ones with irresistible Valentine’s Day treats? From luscious chocolate-covered rice Krispie goodies to sweet and salty pretzels. Whatever your sweet tooth desires can be found this holiday!
Supplies needed to make my favorite Valentine’s Day treats
- Ingredients to make rice Krispie treats ( Rice Krispies, butter, marshmallows )
- White chocolate melting tablets
- Chocolate coloring ( if you need to color your white Chocolate)
- Canola Oil
- Spray oil
- Parchment paper
How to make chocolate-covered Valentine’s Day treats.
I grew up on rice Krispies treats and still love them. However, when you dip them in Chocolate, it takes them to another level. Here are the directions to make the rice Krispie treats I dipped in white Chocolate.
- Mix 6 cups of rice Krispies with 3 Tbsp. of butter that you have melted with 5 cups of miniature marshmallows.
- Place in a pyrex glass pan that you have sprayed with oil.
- Pat down with parchment paper so they do not stick to your fingers.
- Place in the refrigerator to cool for about 30 minutes.
Cutting your Valentine’s Day treats
I used an assortment of fun Valentine’s Day cookie cutters that I had on hand. Hearts in several sizes and this cute love cookie cutter.
You want to cut them before they become too chilled, as it is easier to cut them.
Preparing the Chocolate to dip your Valentine’s treats
- Using a double boiler, place the Chocolate melts in the top pan and allow them to melt fully.
- I added a little bit of canola oil to thin the Chocolate slightly.
- Dip your Rice Krispie treat or cookie in the Chocolate and place it on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
- If you want to color your Chocolate, I use this Ameri Color candy dye. A few drops go a long way. I used three drops to get this light pink color.
If you want to use sprinkles, sprinkle them on when the Chocolate is still wet. Place them on the parchment paper and place the tray in the refrigerator to cool quickly.
Other cookies I dipped in Chocolate.
Isn’t everything better when it is dipped in Chocolate? I certainly think so. I chose to dip chocolate Oreos and vanilla wafters in addition to the rice Krispie treats and pretzels. It created such a pretty presentation on the plate. Once the first layer of Chocolate dried, I added a bit more canola oil to the Chocolate to thin it out. Next. I put a slight drizzle of the opposite color of Chocolate on the cookies using a spoon as you can see in the image below
Rice Krispie Treats dipped in chocolate
- 1 double boiler
- 1 measuring cup
- 1 Mixing Bowl
- 1 Measuring spoons
- 6 Cups Rice Krispies
- 3 tbsp Butter
- 5 Cups Miniature Marshmallows
- Melt Butter in a saucepan.
- Add marshmallows and melt until smooth.
- Pour over the dry rice Krispies and mix well.
- Spray a Pyrex pan with canola oil.
- Pour the rice Krispie mixture over into the Pyrex pan.
- Pat down with your hand using a piece of parchment paper.
- Put in the refrigerator to cool
Well, that’s about it for me. I hope you enjoyed my Valentine’s Day treats.
Next up is my friend Laura from @everydayedits. You will see that Laura and I think alike. Nothing better than something sweet and salty.
Hoping you have a wonderful day.
