Valentine’s Treats – Tutorial and Recipe Roundup

Valentine Chocolate Pretzel Bites

Tomorrow is the big day! The day for chocolate, hearts and most of all LOVE! This weekend my 6 year old son and I took some time to make these yummy and super simple Valentine Chocolate Pretzel Bites for his Kindergarten class party. I love snacks that are sweet and salty, don’t you? I promise these will satisfy the strongest of cravings.  I thought I’d share the recipe and make it a tutorial,  plus offer up some more sweet and savory Valentine’s snacks at the end of this post. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
Mini Pretzels
Heart Shaped Dove Chocolates
Valentine Colored M&Ms

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Grab a little helper and start placing pretzels onto a lined cookie sheet.

While your little helper is lining up the pretzels, unwrap all chocolates.

Center a chocolate onto each pretzel

Both milk and dark chocolate, make a nice contrast.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until chocolate is melted but still retains shape

Press an M&M into each chocolate (not too far)
Place in a safe place (where you can’t eat them:) and allow to cool
on sheet until they are no longer soft. Overnight is best.
