Friday Frolic

 
I wanted to take this chance with Frolic Friday over at Pocket Full of Pink to show off
all of the yummy treats I made and put together for Monkey's little Valentine swaree :)
 
Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods
 Super Easy!  I buy the Baker's Dipping Chocolate Cups- melt the chocolate- dip the pretzels, one at a time in the melted chocolate and then shake different color sprinkles on them- lay on wax paper until dry and set and VOILA!  (you can do different colors for any party theme or holiday)
 
 
Valentine Cereal Cups
Big hit with the kiddos!  Another easy crowd pleaser.  I mixed Multi-Grain Cheerios, Strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats and Valentine M&Ms- festive and a slightly healthier snack option ;)

Veggie Tray with Hummus for Dipping

 Arranged the veggies on a heart shaped platter for our valentine party


Strawberry Salsa with Blue Corn Chips
 This was a big hit for one of my girls' nights in see the other fun recipes etc HERE...my BFF Cass loves this and I thought it was an appropriate and festive snack...I love to serve this salsa with blue corn chips
Here is the recipe!
Ingredients:
1 English or seedless cucumber, finely chopped
1 thinly sliced green onion
1 Tbsp cilantro, cut into strips
3-4 Tbsp seasoned rice wine vinegar
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and diced small
1 yellow pepper

Directions:
Mix cucumbers, green onion, cilantro, vinegar, and pepper. Cover and chill at least one hour.

Just before serving, add strawberries.


Pineapple and Cream Cheese Bites
 Pretty self-explanatory: I took pineapple chunks and rolled pieces of cream cheese into balls. I put the cream cheese balls on top of the pineapple chunks and stabbed them with mini pretzel rods to hold them together...another healthier option for kiddos


Valentine Rice Krispee Treats

I made homemade Rice Krispee Treats and cut them into some fun shapes.  I then got some red and pink frosting (yes in a can- ha ha!) and decorated them to make them super festive


and no kiddy Valentine party is complete without Jello Jigglers
There are several jiggler recipes on line
I substituted lemon flavored pudding for the vanilla and they came out great!

Cannot wait to read all of your homemade treats and projects from Valentine Week!

Linking up with Karen at Pocket Full of Pink
