Valentine Peppermint and White Chocolate Heart Lollipops

Sweets for your sweeties!

Aren't these just too cute?!!

Well, it is almost February, that time of year when cupid visits.

So, let's get ready with some great, simple, festive, red, white, and pink treats...

First, let's make some,

Peppermint and White Chocolate Heart Lollipops
from Family Fun


mini candy canes
paper lollipop sticks
white chocolate chips or chocolate bark
sprinkles (nonpareils, hearts, or sugar)


Heat oven to 235 degrees F.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange mini candy canes as hearts.

Bake for 10 min.
My heart melts for you! (sorry couldn't resist!)

Remove from oven and quickly pinch each heart onto a lollipop stick. 
 Melt chocolate chips or bark and spoon chocolate into the center of each heart.

Top the heart with sprinkles as desired!

Then get ready to share!!!

Another really simple, quick, festive Valentine treat is to use some of the white chocolate and sprinkles you have to cover some pretzels.

 A big hit at my house!

Want some other great simple, quick, Valentine's Treat ideas?!

Visit Munchkin Munchies!

She came up with some wonderful, simple ideas like...

Adding words and hearts to white chocolate covered oreos for a Valentine treat!
How easy is that! and festive!

Also, I absolutely love these little peanut butter cup owls she put together with a Valentine saying, "Whoooo Loves you?" 

Here are the ones that no longer reside at our house, shall we say they just happened to fly away...

"Whoooo loves you?"

So, Get to making your Valentine's Treats and share the love!!!

What can I say? I'm a sucker for cute things!

Also, if you have little ones or just want a quick, cute way to decorate, use leftover tissue paper to decorate paper hearts.

Just cut out  ~ 1 to 2" squares and crinkle and glue and decorate to your hearts desire!
