Valentine Treats

Do you need an easy crowd pleasing treat for Valentine's Day?
I've got a quick and easy recipe that will wow the littles or anyone really.

Do you ever have that 'duh' moment when you see the plate of crispie treats at the bake sale?
Why are they always the last thing I consider making?
It has to be the easiest, cheapest treat on the planet and cookies are still my go to.
With cute variations like this, rice crispie treats are my new signature dish! 

I'm kind of hoping you know how to make Rice Crispie Treats. 6 cups cereal, 10 ounce bag of marshmallows, 4 Tbsp. butter. If not, the recipe is on every pack of marshmallows and box of Rice Crispies on Earth. Or as my husband would say, 'Google' it.

There are several options for your chocolate coating. I used Baker's squares which work pretty slick. Melt 3 bars in the microwave for one minute. 
You could also use chocolate chips, almond bark, chocolate candy disks from the craft store.
If you don't have a heart shaped cookie cutter, then improvise. Cut squares or triangles. No big.
You've got to let the chocolate set. Which takes hours in my experience.
Just a word of advice since no recipe ever thinks it's important to estimate 'set time'.
And for procrastinators like myself, it's kind of important.

There you are! My Pinterest test.
