It takes just a few minutes to show kids how much we love them. A special breakfast or afternoon snack goes a long way to make them feel special. Give these a try for the perfect Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Breakfast Banana Split
Cut about 1/4 of the banana, curve side up, then scoop it out with a melon baller. Sometimes I use a teaspoon with a narrow banana to make a deeper groove. Fill it with sliced strawberries, blueberries & raspberries. Top with whip cream & a marachino cherry.
Sweet Snack Mix
This is a recipe from my cousin Misty. The kids & I tried it at her house and weeks later found ourselves searching the internet for the recipe. Wasn’t it some sort of chex mix, like puppy chow but better? Nope, as Misty explained, there’s no chex mix in it at all. It is known as “Corny Snack Mix” because every ingredient besides the candy is made from corn.
4 quarts white popcorn
1 large bag Fritos
4 cups Corn Pops cereal
2 large bags of red “Valentine’s” Peanut M&M candies
1 package almond bark
Mix together all ingredients except almond bark. Melt almond bark according to package instructions and drizzle over all your ingredients. Mix together very well. Package in cute containers for Valentine’s. If peanut allergies are a concern use regular M&Ms. You can use different colored candies for any holiday (pastel for Easter, red, white & blue for July 4th, red & green for Christmas). I always give this recipe as a gift and they always ask for more!
Hugs & Kisses Float
I like to use these fun glass bottles (they use to contain coffee drinks).
- Add 4 small scoops of ice cream
- Fill the bottle 3/4 full with strawberry soda (it will be fizzy).
- Top with whip cream & a marachino cherry.
