Last Minute Valentine Goodness

I am so squeaking this in at the last minute but maybe it will be useful to someone??? 

Check out these adorable Valentine’s I whipped up this morning with the help of some very creative bloggers. 

Thanks to The Crafting Chicks for these fun free printables! I found these solid color bouncy balls at Target with all their Valentine’s stuff. They were $2 for 16 balls. I found the right size bags at Wal-Mart with their Wilton cake supplies. I got 50 bags for $2.47. All in all this was a pretty thrifty goody for all their school classmates. 

I signed up to take care of the sweet treat for Sam and Maggie’s class so I could just make a lot of one thing making it easier on me. Anything to make life a bit easier. 🙂
I started out with these supplies to make traditional Rice Krispie treats. Go here for the recipe. Let them cool in the pan for about 30 minutes. Then use a cookie cutter to cut out your shapes. I used a small heart making these bite size.
Next grab these supplies…
Melt your candy melts in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between each time. I dipped the tops of each heart into the melted candy coating. Give it a little shake to get rid of the extra and top with sprinkles while it is wet. This is where I made a really big mess!

I used the whole bag of candy melts for two batches of Rice Krispie treats. So just melt half the bag for one batch.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
