A Simple, Inexpensive Valentine Treat!

I know we just finished up with Christmas, but Valentine's Day is gonna be here before we know it. If you are looking for a quick, inexpensive Valentine treat, I've got just the thing for you! Chocolate covered strawberry flavored marshmallows! Yummo!

Here's what you need to get started:

A bag of large sized strawberry flavored marshmallows and a package of chocolate flavored CandiQuik. All I did was melt the chocolate according to the directions on the package. I used the microwave method. Lay a piece of waxed paper out to set the dipped marshmallows on. Dip each marshmallow into the chocolate. I went about a quarter of the way to almost half way up the marshmallows. Set on wax paper to harden. Using a spoon, I drizzled more chocolate on top of each marshmallow. You could make little heart designs, polka dots, little x's and o's or whatever you want on top. Just use your imagination! Here's how mine turned out:

Don't they look yummy??!!

After the chocolate hardens, box them up in whatever cute containers you have. I just used plain cellophane bags I had left over from Christmas and I tied them up with a pretty pink ribbon and now they are ready for gift giving!

This was easy and fun to do and would be a great project for the kids to help with too. I found this idea here at Greenbean's Crafterole. This gal has got some awesome ideas so check her out when you get a chance!

I've really enjoyed my three day weekend. Too bad it just goes by way too fast! And I won't get another one until May! How sad is that??!! But on the bright side, my annual two weeks of vacation went into effect on January 1st, so if things get too intense at work, I can always take a vacation day! Hey, gotta look at the bright side of things, ya know?

Well, that's it for me for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Until next time. . .


  1. Love that candy and will make some for a swap I am in and we are supposed to send some kind of Chocolate..I think she will love it. I wonder if I could dip them in the melted almond bark since I already have some.Might try and see how it goes.
