Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? As long as my gift makes it here in time I’m ready lol. I even have some fun Valentine’s Day recipes planned not just for my husband but for my kids school parties too. OMG, it’s rough having four kids in school and three of their teachers asking you to make something for their class. Good think I enjoy baking, and my kids enjoy helping me or I would be a little upset at them for leaving me in there all alone to make treats for their party. Honestly, spending time with my kids is what I enjoy most about cooking and baking!
Needless to say, I’m not going to make anything too crazy for the kids parties because I don’t have that kind of time. Thankfully there is plenty of easy recipes for Valentine’s Day I can make. My oldest daughter requested that I make her Valentine’s Day Bark recipe for her class. Which is great because it’s SUPER easy. I wanted to share it with you just in case you are in the same boat I am and need something that the kids will love, quick and easy and still has the Valentine’s Day theme going on.
Valentine’s Day Bark Recipe
To make your Valentine’s Day Bark you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 cup pretzel sticks
- One bag white chocolate (16 ounces)
- 1 cup of M&M candies
- 1/2 cup red hot hearts
- 1/2 cup candy sweethearts
- 2-4 drops of red food coloring
Let’s get to making this super yummy Valentine’s Day Bark recipe:
- First you’ll want to grab an 8×10 baking sheet and line it with parchment (wax) paper. You’ll be glad you did this, don’t skip it.
- Melt the chocolate according to the directions. I have a chocolate melting pot that I just love for things like this. If you don’t have one they are relatively inexpensive, and you can get them at Walmart or online just about anywhere.
- Add red food coloring. Start out by only adding 1-2 drops. If you want it, darker add one drop at a time until you reach the desired color.
- Grab your lined baking sheet and spread pretzel sticks all over the bottom and slowly pour the melted chocolate over the pretzels.
- Pres Candies on the top and allow to sit for 30 minutes or until chocolate sets.
- Break into pieces and enjoy!
See that is no difficult to make! My kids love the stuff, especially my oldest it’s always been one of her favorites.
