White Chocolate Marshmallow Popcorn Treats

White Chocolate Marshmallow Popcorn Treats

Love is in the air this week!  I celebrated Valentine’s Day early with these fun, sweet, and cute  White Chocolate Marshmallow Popcorn Treats.  The recipe is adapted from Jolly Time’s recipe for Choco-Cherry Heart Bouquets.  The folks at Jolly Time were kind enough to send me the supplies needed for this recipe, including a box of their buttered popcorn, and I was really happy with how the treats turned out!

These would make a perfect homemade gift for the one you love, especially the kids!  It would also be a great treat for Valentine’s Day parties and a great recipe to make with the kids for a Valentine’s Day activity.  Hope you enjoy!

Candy Filled Cookie Cups

Candy Filled Cookie Cups

 

I love break & bake cookie dough!  As if, ready made cookie dough wasn’t enough of a short cut, the break and bake kind take out all the cutting and measuring-guess work.  Today we’re getting a little creative with our cookie dough, by placing an extra special treat inside!

These Candy Filled Cookie Cups can be made with any kind of cookie dough you choose.  Here we obviously chose chocolate chip, but if you like peanut butter, sugar, or even snicker doodles, they would be perfect as well.  And what’s the filling, you ask?  Mini candy bars, of course!  Just think of all the possible flavor combinations!

Serve these as a fun after school treat, or get the kids involved, by letting them pick their favorite “recipe combinations.”  They will have a blast! [Read more…]
