Since my boys are bigger now, their Valentine’s Day goodies will be food and gift cards. And, since we are also celebrating a BIG birthday this week, I wanted to make some Easy Valentine’s Day Treats for them.
Valentine’s Day Desserts
We never really do anything big for Valentine’s Day. Typically, my hubby makes my favorite dinner, and I make a delicious dessert for everyone.
Easy Valentine Dessert
Our second son turns 16 on 2/13, so I wanted to make a really simple treat for the guys. And, there isn’t anything much easier than Rice Krispie Treats.
I know my guys would have been thrilled to have a pan of yummy RKTs. But, I wanted them to have a little Valentine’s Day flair.
Heart Shaped Desserts
These were SO easy to make. I made a batch of RKT while the boys were at school and work.
Once they set, I took them out of the tray and put them on a cutting board. Then, I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out several heart shaped valentines sweets.
Next, I removed the excess Rice Krispie Treats and set the pieces aside.
I was able to get 6 large sized hearts from one tray of RKTs. I left them on the cutting board, and drizzled them with pink candy melts. When I just want to drizzle candy melts onto treats, I put a handful of melts in a sandwich baggie, and heat them up. Then, I snip off the tip of the bag and drizzled the candy melts on the treats. This is a fun way to make chocolate covered pretzels too. Finally, before the candy melts hardened, I sprinkled Valentine’s Day candies on top.
