Yummy, SWEET Valentine's Treats That You Can Make in a Hurry!

Happy Hearts Day!!!!!
Need some last minute ideas for your sweethearts?
 (big and small ones alike:)
well I've got you covered.......and I can vouch for them all! 
(and i'm starting to look like it;)
Let's get to it.........

Oreo Cookie Balls (or Oreo Truffles)   
 So good and SO easy!
What you need:
1 pkg.  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
40  OREO Cookies, finely crushed, divided
4 pkg.  (4 oz. each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, broken into pieces, melted

MIX cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Freeze 10 min. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place in single layer in shallow waxed paper-lined pan.  (Tip: use a toothpick to dip)
Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.
(Substitute white chocolate if desired)

We have a tradition of making pink or red foods on Valentine's day.
This next drink is on the menu:)

Maybe I should stop here and get to dinner rather than dessert:)
No complicated dish here.........
Pizza with heart pepperoni!
Or take it a step further and shape your own dough in a heart:)
Me?  I'm lazy.  It's the heart shaped pepperoni for this girl:)

Okay, okay........you want something healthier, right?
How about fruit kabobs?
(Well, there IS fruit!  And marshmallows too!)

Don't you just love vintage Valentines?
The good old days:)

Sweet and Salty Valentine Popcorn
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn
1 bag Colorburst Pastels Candy Melts 
(Wiltons............or use any white chocolate to melt)
1 bag Valentine M&Ms
Sea Salt to taste

Lastly, I share you cookies made by my own little Valentine:)

Love, Love, Love on Valentine's Day!
XOXOXO
