What’s in There?

I chose to make heart shaped lollipops, Strawberry Cream Rice Krispie treats and s’more brownie truffles because this trio of homemade Valentine’s treats look cute together and offer a variety of colours, textures and flavours.

Heart Shaped Chocolate Valentine Lollipop Treats

The lollipops are made with ingredients like white chocolate, almond bark and melting candies. If you already have a chocolate pop mold you will find these a breeze to prepare. In fact, even if you’ve never tried making your own popsicles or lollipops before you will find these very easy. And of course once you know how to make them, you’ll want to try all kinds of new varieties.

Strawberry Cream Rice Krispies

As for the Rice Krispie treats, these are made with puffed rice cereal as well as marshmallows and strawberries, as well as some white chocolate bark (you’ll have some of that left from the Valentine lollipops!)

Store-bought Rice Krispie treats are good but the homemade version is even better and you can enjoy the fresh flavour of your efforts. I love the marshmallows in these – they’re perfectly sweet without being overly sweet.

Valentine S’mores Brownie Bite Truffles

Finally you have the truffles in there and those are made with brownies. Chocolate truffles can be expensive and the store-bought ones aren’t always that great, so I’d absolutely recommend making these. They’re just so easy!

Consider anything from a wooden box such as this one to a simple basket to hold the homemade Valentine’s treats. You can also enclose the whole thing with cellophane if you want and maybe also include some ribbons in Valentine’s colours. Pink, red and white tend to be typical colours for Valentine’s gifts or perhaps you have your own favourites.

Non-food items with some kind of Valentine’s Day reference such as pink or red fluffy socks, cute candles, a romantic glass or mug, would also be a good fit.
