Sweet Treats

Valentine Treats:  Strawberry Fudge, Chocolate Covered PB crackers, Chocolate
Covered Fluffer Nutter crackers, and pretzel bites two ways.

After browsing around on Pinterest and being reminded of some of the easy, but yummy, treats you could make I was inspired.  I used to make these treats for various holidays, but haven't in awhile...so, it was fun to do some 'old favs'. 
They are all so simple...I don't even have 'recipes', but here goes...

Strawberry Fudge:  You will need 1-12 oz bag of white chocolate baking chips and a can of Strawberry frosting.  Melt the chips in a micro safe bowl; stir in frosting.  Spread mixture into a lightly greased 9x9 pan.  Top with sprinkles, if you like.  My son LOVES this...next he wants to try lemon frosting...maybe for Easter with pastel sprinkles.

Chocolate Covered PB crackers:  You can do this really easy and use pre-made PB crackers or make your own; you will also need chocolate bark.  Assemble your PB cracker sandwiches & set aside.  Melt bark in a micro safe bowl.  layout wax or parchment paper.  Once bark is melted cover sandwiches in chocolate.  This can be a little messy...I use two forks to dip and then drain off before placing on paper to harden.

Chocolate Covered Fluffer Nutter crackers:  same as above except you add marshmallow fluff to your cracker sandwiches.  This are my favorite...better than a candy bar!

Pretzel Bites:  You will need mini pretzels, chocolate candy  (any kind...I used Hugs and Rolos), and a topper (I used M&M's and whole pecans).  Preheat oven to 200 degrees.  Spread pretzels out on a cookie sheet.  Top with chocolate candy.  Place in oven for approximately 2 minutes to soften, not melt, chocolate. Remove and add topper.  You could come up with lots of combos on this one, but I did Rolos with pecans and hugs with M&M's.  My husband and son LOVE THE pecan ones...just like Turtles!

What sweet treats are you making for the holiday?
