Valentine's Day: Sweet Treats from Mrs. Freshley's
Do you like to get creative in the kitchen, but don't have time to whip everything up from scratch? Then let me direct you to Mrs. Freshley's for some fun and unique creative snacks just in time for Valentines. From simple to sophisticated you're sure to find something that will catch your eye. I thought it would be fun to make heart shaped snacks for my kids for Valentines so did a little practicing with the Dreamies just to see how hard it would be. And well, let me tell you it was so darn simple I feel silly I never thought of it on my own. By simply slicing a Dreamies cakes in half diagonally you can create a heart! As for the Oatmeal Cremes I just used a heart shaped cookie cutter I already had, and I have to say it turned out pretty nice too. I can't wait to surprise them with a plate full of "love" on Valentine's Day.
Here's a fun recipe you might want to try for yourself:
Chocolate Lovers Kabobs
• 8 Mrs. Freshley's Chocolate Bells, halved
• 1 Package of strawberries, hulled
• 1 Package marshmallows
• 1 Package wooden skewers
• Melting chocolate
• Place one halved Mrs. Freshley’s Chocolate Bell on wooden skewer.
• Next place one strawberry, followed by one marshmallow.
• Repeat steps until skewer is full.
• Prepare melting chocolate according to package directions and drizzle over kabobs.
Getting crafty in the kitchen doesn't have to be time consuming or a difficult task. If I can do it, then so can you!
