Valentine’s Days seems to be a pretty popular holiday with our little one.
I don’t know if it is because of the hearts or all the pink and red (Lily’s favorite color), but she is a big fan.
One of her favorite things to do is bake (mostly because it involves sugar).
My Mom was shopping and came across a huge block of rice crispy treat that she thought we could cut into little shapes with cookie cutters.
We then bought lollipop sticks, cellophane bags and ribbon to make them into little rice crispy treat pops.
A few nights ago we sat down to make them and it turned out pretty well.
The cookie cutters did a good job just as long as you have an adult help push down the cutter and you might have to use a knife to cut around the outside edges.
What would a night of baking be without taking a little time to take a photo.
After the hearts were cut out, I then applied the icing and put the sticks into place. This is better for an adult to do because it could get really messy icing and you have to have a little finesse to get the stick in the heart without pushing it all the way through.
After the icing went on, then Lily got the pops back and added sprinkles.
We ended up having to let the icing harden overnight before putting it in the bags. (We tried one and the icing smudged a little.) I think they are going to turn out really cute. But, even if they don’t Lily still had a great time making them.
