I've been having some fun in the kitchen...
At first I was going to make Valentine cake pops, but since I didn't feel like baking a cake, oreo valentine "suckers'' were the next best option. Do you remember the St. Patty's ones I made a while ago? These treats are sooooooooo yummy and crunchy. And these Valentine colors put a smile on my face.
Did I mention they're crunchy? That's my favorite part.
And as if they're not embellished enough, I couldn't help personalizing them. It just adds that extra special touch.
(The initials were a Target find from last year.)
The paper hearts came from Michael's. Use an exacto knife to slit small horizontal lines in the paper for the stick to slide through.
I thought making Valentine Oreo Lollipops would be a fun twist on this treat.
To make them, after dipping the oreo in the melting chocolate, set aside to dry. Once the chocolate is completley dry, pour some chocolate in a pastry bag with a fine circular frosting tip on it; pipe a swirl on the flat surface and sprinkle with fine sprinkles! Voila! You're done!

I can't wait to give these to all my Valentines in my life. I hope it puts a smile on their faces and in their tummies.
Thank you and have a great weekend!
