I can’t believe it but here we are two full weeks away from valentines day and I have actually finished the valentines for my oldest two girls classes. Seriously. If you knew me you would know that I am usually finishing these things at 11:00 the night before they need to be there. But for whatever reason I actually finished them early and I love the way they turned out.
This was a super easy food craft to make and it was a lot of fun for my girls to help with. From making the bark to packaging it up they were very hands on. Which was great because they like to be hands on. Which is sometimes hard for me because I want things to look perfect but that’s a post for another day.
The process to make the bark was very easy. For 45 kids I used about 3 lbs of melting wafers. Half white chocolate and half milk chocolate, conversation hearts and colored sprinkles of your choice. Over low heat we melted the white chocolate wafers and poured them onto a large clean cookie sheet. We did the same with the milk chocolate wafers and poured them over the white chocolate before it set. Before the milk chocolate sets sprinkle the conversation hearts on and then your sprinkles.
This is what you’ll have:
A yummy chocolatey tray of Valentines treats. Now for the fun part. Break it up. Snap it into evenly sized pieces. You will want to make sure that you have a few extra pieces left for testing. Quality control is very important.
At our local dollar store we found packages of forty valentines themed cellophane bags for a dollar, the perfect price for us, and packaged them up.
I had been looking on pinterest for some valentines printables and found these and these (I don’t know if I will ever get through another post without mentioning pinterest). Printed them out and they were a perfect fit.
What are you doing for Valentines Day? Do you have anything special planned for your kids?
