Valentine's Day Treats

With school finally out of the way we settled down to do a fun Valentine's craft.  I figured our craft this year was also a nice tie in to our Candy Makers book since we made chocolate dipped pretzels with sprinkles on them.  It was a fun, tasty, and easy craft.




 We bought red candy melts from the craft store and used the microwave to melt them in small batches.  I ended up using three different bowls to melt them so the boys could each have their own bowl and not fight over one.

They dipped pretzels in the melted chocolate and set them on wax paper.  They sprinkled toppings on to their hearts content.  It was quick, fun, yummy, and easy and a great way to end our school day.




Don't they look yummy?

    1. That's a great idea! With all the colors of chocolate melts and sprinkles there are so many varieties you can make too.

  6. I did these and also with white chocolate, the pretzel rods were messier.

    1. I have never thought to try with pretzel rods... good to know they're not quite as easy to do.

    1. It's such a great combo! You can't go wrong with sweet and salty (IMO).
