If you are feeling the love this month, why not make some sweet treats for a loved one ahead of Valentine’s Day. I’ve made three different treats and all would make a lovely gift. The first of these are heart-shaped white chocolate dipped marshmallow crispie cakes. For this you will need white chocolate, rice crispies, pink marshmallows, silicone heart cupcake moulds and red and pink sprinkles.
This is such an easy recipe. First you need to melt the pink marshmallows in a bain marie (in a bowl over a pot of boiling water). When the marshmallows have melted, mix in the rice crispies and press the mixture into the heart moulds. You then need to put these into the fridge to set.
When the cripsie cakes have hardened, you need to remove them from their moulds by turning them inside out. Dip the top of the cakes into some melted white chocolate, add some sprinkles and leave to set.
The next treat I made are milk chocolate cheesecake truffles. For this you will need milk chocolate, soft cream cheese, digestive biscuits and red food colouring. In a large bowl, crush some digestive biscuits and mix them together with cream cheese. Add some red food colouring to this mixture to make them look more interesting and love-themed.
Next you need to take the mixture and press it into round chocolate truffle moulds. When you have done each side, sandwich the moulds together and put them in the fridge to set.
When these have hardened enough to remove neatly from the moulds, it’s time to coat them in some melted milk chocolate, leave on some plastic so they are easy to peel off and leave to set. These will be a hit with everybody and they’re not just for Valentine’s Day either. These would be great for a community event or a kid’s party, just make sure you get a sweet dispenser to keep them fresh. You can even stock them at your store, if you run one, so you can give customers the chance to nibble after making a purchase
Finally, I made some white chocolate dipped pink wafer biscuits. For this you will need pink wafers, white chocolate, silver balls and pearl sprinkles. You could also use some red food colouring here to dye the melted chocolate if you wish to.
Dip one end of the wafers in melted white chocolate and add some silver balls and pearls for decoration. Lay these out on some plastic (I used freezer bags) so that you can peel them off neatly when the chocolate has set. Finally, parcel all your treats up in a box and gift to someone you care about.
Will you be trying any of these recipes?
