Kids can make chocolate for valentines

Updated on February 27, 2008

Valentines chocolate;kids

Chocolate....Yummy! My kids love chocolate as do I. Last year we desided to make our own Vlentines treats and they were great. It was a messy process but it was fun. First of all we used peanut butter for this treat so those with allergies 'BEWARE'.

Your ingredients will include 1-2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips or any chocolate you normally use for melting

About 2 cups of rice crispies

About 1 cup of peanut butter

1-2 Tbsp o butter or margrine

Molds or shapes(optional)


If you are using a mold use jello shaped molds, cookie cuters or large sized chocolate molds....Most of hese can be found at a dollar store or your grocery shop.

Okay first you need to melt the chocolate, the best way is to melt in a stainless steel bowl or a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water. While the chocolate is melting mix rice crispies and peanut butter together )should be able to make into balls ).

Get your mold ready by placing in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes, when mold is cool pour in a small amount of melted chocolate roll around to coat the mold, do this a few times to build a layer around the sides. (Skip this step if using cookie cutters or shaping by hand)

Next fill molds with rice crispy mix, flatten with hand or spoon then pour more chocolate to cover crispy mix, wipe off any extra on sides of mold. Place back in fridge or freezer till chocolate is settled, the remove from mold and you have yummy chocolate treats.

With out molds all you have to do is shape the crispy mix by hand or with shapes, stik a scewer in bottom and roll a few times in the melted chocolate, place in fridge to cool. Obviously this is easy enough fo the kids, just help with the melting of the chocolate.

One more thing you can change what goes inside, try melted marshmellows, caramel, marishino cherries with a mousse or wht ever your kids like. Have fun and enjoy some chocolate this Valenbtines day.
