It's almost Valentine's Day!! My preschooler needs to take a treat for her class and you know me now-a-days, I'm always looking for something quick and easy.
Now, a couple of weeks ago, I was at the grocery store and I saw heart-shaped marshmallows. My brain started churning and I was coming up with ways to use them for Valentine's day. I didn't get them at the time. I decided to wait until I came back.
When I went back last week to pick up a couple of bags, I was so upset that I couldn't find them. Anywhere! So I had to settle for pink, strawberry flavored marshmallows. I was bummed.
But we moved forward with my plan anyway. Let me just tell you how much I LOVE them!!!!! Since we had a few extra marshmallows and chocolate, I decided to try one.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!
Why didn't I think that chocolate and strawberries would be the perfect combination for Valentine's Day?!?! I really don't know where my brain was, but once I tasted it, I knew I was on to something.
And something easy.
And something SO. STINKIN'. CUTE.
I'm so pleased with how they turned out and I can't wait for my daughter to take them to her class. And seriously, what preschool-aged child doesn't like marshmallows? They're sure to be a hit.
For Heaven's sake, I WOULD BE EXCITED TO GET THESE!
Here's what you'll need:
Poke lollipop sticks into marshmallows.
Dip into melted milk chocolate.
Sprinkle with some cute sprinkles. I placed mine into a square of styrofoam that I had pre-poked with holes about two inches apart.
I'll be able to use these squares for future projects. Yay!
Let them cool and set. You can even put them in the fridge for a little bit.
Cover these with some seran wrap, cut into squares, and tie with ribbon.
I made several in packages of two for teachers.
Are these not just the cutest little treats?!
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
