Marvelous Monday: Valentine's Day Treat Ideas

I lovey {LOVE} making treats.
It's too bad we can't live on treats alone,
because my family would be SET!
Like I said - it's the dinner department where don't get TOO fancy.
But treats - yeah- that's my favorite!

So I though I'd share some of the fun things I made last year.
Last year I had Valentine's Day Party of my own with some of my friends.
It made these cuties.



I got the idea from The Idea Room.
She put hers on sucker sticks, but I just made them as candies.
And then bagged them up in sandwich bags and added cute treat toppers.
I also gave some to JT's preschool teachers.
I used the same treat toppers to make treats for JT's friends.
He's an animal nut - so it was perfect.At the Valentine's Day Party,
I wanted everyone to make {heart} shaped cake pops.
But they were too hopped up on {LOVE} Potion to concentrate.
So I was left with A LOT of cake pop "dough".
I couldn't get the hearts to look right.
So I just switched to cute cake pops.
They were a hug hit at park day.



I also made Red Velvet {HEART} Whoopie Pies.
Mmm . . . they were yummy.
I used the recipe and tutorial at Annie's Eats.

And finally, I made these rice krispie pops from Skip to My Lou.
I didn't have the heart mold, so I put it into a jelly roll pan,
and then used a cookie cutter to cut them out.
I hope those give you some fun ideas.
What treats have you made that you {love}?
Did you see the NEW cute giveaway from Two Lilies Boutique?

ETA: I'll be linking up HERE!!!
