Valentine's Day is Wednesday, and a fun way to celebrate is to make your own themed treats. Here is a list of three fun snacks you could make this Valentine’s Day.

 

Heart Shaped Rice Krispy Treats:

  • Melt 4 cups of mini-marshmallows in a pan with 3 tablespoons of butter

  • Add three drops of red food colouring and stir

  • Dump in 6 cups of Rice Krispies and stir again

  • Press into a greased 9X13 pan, and let cool for two or three minutes

  • Flip the pan of treats out onto a cutting board

  • Cut the treats into hearts with a heart shaped cookie cutter

  • Cool a little longer, then eat!

Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Sticks:

  • Melt 1 bag (14 ounce) pink or red candy melts carefully in the microwave

Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

  • Gently rinse 2 cups of strawberries and dry on paper towels (berries must be completely dry)

  • Line cookie sheet with waxed paper

  • In 1-quart saucepan, melt 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

  • Dip lower half of each strawberry into chocolate mixture; allow excess to drip into saucepan. Place on waxed paper-lined tray or cookie sheet.

  • Refrigerate uncovered about 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm, or ready to serve. Store covered in refrigerator so chocolate does not soften.
