Homemade Valentine Treats

I haven’t got much time here, but I wanted to let you know how I spent my Friday. Last night was the Valentine Dessert Auction Fundraiser for Youth at our church and I needed to make some goodies. This is what I made:

Chocolate Marshmallow Hearts

It’s really easy to make the crème although they don’t look as good as I wanted because I beat the marshmallow crème until it was stiff. I should have stopped when it was still in the pourable stage. The mold is just the back of a chocolate mold pressed into flour. Since the creme didn't set properly, I had to dip my pizza shears into hot water and cut the marshmallows into heart shapes. Still, they tasted yummy. I packaged them in a red cardboard heart.

I also made Oatmeal Heart Cookies. They are oatmeal cookies with chopped walnuts, coconut and corn flakes but instead of rolling in a ball and flattening, I rolled it out and used a cookie cutter.

Since I already had my chocolate melting for the marshmallow hearts, I dipped one half of each oatmeal heart in the chocolate as well. Sorry, no photo.

Let me know if you want the recipe for either the marshmallow crème or the oatmeal cookies.

And how did you spend your Friday?

  3. I so want the cookie recipe with coconut. Being from Unpubbed Island I am always looking for something new to do with coconut.

  4. Tina - you're too cute! I just emailed the recipe to ya. 8).
