Heart-shaped rice crispy treats
Rice crispy treats are easy to make and you can give them a romantic twist too. All you need to do is mix up some melted marshmallow with rice crispies. Once you have mixed it all up, roll it out and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut them into heart shapes. Allow them to set before decorating. You can decorate them in many ways. Firstly, you could use a chocolate ‘syringe’ to decorate them with white or milk chocolate. You could also dip half of the heart in chocolate and sprinkle choc chips or shavings over the chocolate before it sets.
Ice cream sandwiches
Ice cream sandwiches are one of the simplest yet scrumptious Valentine’s Day recipes of all. All you need to do is select your favourite ice cream and get a few heart-shaped cookie cutters. Place some parchment paper on a baking tray or large flat dish. Place your heart-shaped cookie cutters on the parchment and pour chocolate inside. Allow the chocolate to set before removing the cookie cutters and making more. Make sure that you make them in pairs. You will need to heart-shaped chocolate sheets for each sandwich. Next, spread out your ice cream on a flat dish. You might need to refreeze it before you continue. Now cut out heart shapes of ice cream with the cookie cutters. Place the ice cream in between two chocolate hearts, place in a container and freeze. These are great because they can be made in advance.
