So I found a really cool looking recipe for a treat on a blog… I pinned it… and then I MADE IT!
I know – crazy!
My real life friend Stephanie over at Sandpaper and Glue has challenged us to actually make the stuff we pinned! Check out her blog and great recipes.
I was checking out another cool Mommy Blog – Diana Rambles and saw her cute recipe for Valentine Candy Bark. I have had a similar plain bark in the past – a long time ago and have no idea if it is the same recipe. I thought it was a nice alternative to the cookies or pretzel m & m treats I usually make and that it was super easy enough for Connor to help with. So I bought the ingredients and went for it with the boy!
He, of course, refused to help when it came down to the actual cooking. Ahhh… the attention span of a three and a half year old. He supervised for a little while and then took off after I refused to let him have any more of the toppings!
So here it is!
Check out Diana’s recipe here! I used a bunch of leftover Valentine’s Day decorations including red sugar, some broken up candy canes, a couple of boxes of conversation hearts, some kind of red licorice bites and a half a bag of cupid’s mix m & m’s. I had also bought a bag of mini marshmallows, but didn’t need them.
