Valentine’s Krispie Treats

Valentine's Heart Krispie Treats | Cookies and Cups

Here’s the thing.

This past weekend I flew down to Arkansas to visit Kristan.

Flying isn’t my favorite, I have to say.  I get sweaty and nervous and spot bad guys pretty much at every turn.

Which kind of forces me to engage my spy-sensibilities…

 

It might be possible that I have been watching too much Homeland lately, but I am convinced I would be a fairly good CIA agent.

I like to solve crimes.  I like to interrogate people, I mean, just ask my husband.  And although I don’t enjoy pant suits, I’m fairly certain with a cute statement necklace or a few fun bangles I could make it work.

 

Anyway, I was so busy planning escape routes, take-down plans and choreographed karate kicks while sipping complimentary Diet Cokes that the flight was over.

 

So while I was in Arkansas visiting Kristan, we decided that it would be fun to bake together.

And of course as food bloggers we needed a baking theme.  Of course.

So in preparation for the most annoying holiday of the year we decided on Valentine’s treats.

A whole week of Valentine’s treats.

Are you rolling your eyes yet?

 

To kick off the fun week of Valentine’s treats I made Krispie Treats.  Valentine’s Krispie Treats.  Totally.

 

These honestly couldn’t be easier.

All you have to do is make some basic krispie treats.  Here’s my recipe.

I cut them out with a heart cookie cutter…If you don’t have a cutter, you can easily hand cut them…
PhotobucketThen melt some candy melts and dip the tops…
PhotobucketI melted some pink melts as well to drizzle on top…
PhotobucketWhile those set I made the arrows.

Cut some Popsicle sticks in 2 inch segments…
PhotobucketUse some card stock or construction paper to make the arrow tips…
Photobucketand the feathery thing on the back of an arrow…
PhotobucketI used glue dots to attach the card stock to the Popsicle stick, but you could use hot glue.

Then dip the end of the stick into a little melted chocolate and press it carefully into the krispie on the diagonal…
PhotobucketThat’s it!

These are too adorable! Plus, I’m so jealous that you guys had a get together…and I drove right through AR (I just moved away from there but I drive back every few weekends)!
I need a krispie treat now. One with a cute arrow through it, preferably.
