Like the terrible blogger I continue to be, I am finally getting around to posting about a cute activity Jackson & I did for Valentine's Day this year! Feel free to ignore, since it won't apply for another 51 weeks, or squirrel it away to remember for next year, or even better - pin it so you don't forget! :)
I found these strawberry heart-shaped marshmallows at the grocery store awhile back, bought them, and promptly forgot about them until the day before Valentine's Day.
I rediscovered them while searching in the pantry for something else completely. I wracked (racked?) by brain trying to come up with something to do with them, and decided on keeping it simple. Dip in melted white chocolate chips and then in sprinkles. Wonderful, festive idea right? Until I did it and saw what they looked like.
Happy Valentine's Day....here's your.....lump of pink sprinkles??
I tried dipping them in only halfway; same result. I flipped it over, and lo and behold.....cuteness! And they fit perfectly in the Valentine's mini-muffin tin liners I found last year at Target's 90% off Valentine's sale.
So....what did we do with all these fancy marshmallow hearts? We put one on each place at our Valentine's meal (in case you don't remember, our traditional Valentine's meal is a heart-shaped meatloaf or hamloaf, and lots of other heart-shaped or red or pink foods). We've also been using them in hot chocolate - adorable and tasty!
