Valentine Treats

I love any excuse to make some sweet treats for others.

To make the little heart candies I used a silicone ice cube tray from the dollar bin at Target. I melted the chocolate in the microwave and then spooned it into the mold. I put the sprinkles on and let them harden back up in the fridge.

The candy cane hearts were pretty easy. I trimmed the candy cane down and formed the heart. Using parchemnt paper on a cookie sheet lay out the hearts. Put them in a 350 oven for about 8 minutes or so. I just kept my eye on them constantly! When they come out place the stick in the middle!

The last treat I made were brownies. I used a box mix and baked it in a 9x13 pan. After they cooled for a bit I used various size cookie cutters to form the hearts. I then melted some icing in the microwave and spooned it over the brownies. As you can tell in the picture there were more brownies on this plate but they were quickly devoured!
