Chocolate Valentine Treats

There is nothing I love doing more than spending time in the kitchen with my oldest grandson, Dylan. We had s blast Saturday night making Cocoa Pebbles treats , dipping them in chocolate and decorating them. A great way to make memories with your children/grandchildren in your life.

Ingredients:

1 box of Cocoa Pebbles, 11 ounces

1 bag of mini marshmallows

3 Tablespoons of butter

1 bag of chocolate chips, we used milk chocolate

Valentine sprinkles

Conversation Heart Candy

Heart cookie cutters

Prepare a 9 x 15 pan with butter, nonstick foil or nonstick spray. I prefer foil. Melt butter and marshmallows over medium heat. Once melted, remove from heat. Add box of Cocoa Pebbles and stir to incorporate. Let harden and set up about 20-30 minutes. Melt chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave. I used about 1/2 bag in a bowl. I microwaved the chips for 30 seconds, stirred and and microwaved again got 30 seconds more.

I used wax paper on the table and we carefully spooned the chocolate over the heart treats. Dylan decorated them. We put them in the fridge so they would set up quickly. Store in an airtight container.

Can’t wait for this cutie to join us in the kitchen. Connor, 3 months old was a little too tired to help out Saturday night.
