Happy Valentine's Day!
Hope everyone is having a terrific and lovely day today. The girls and I are immersing ourselves in all things pink and lovely (and yummy). Daddy is really the one in charge of Valentine's day gifts so I take on the roll of filling our day with hearts and fun. We started the day off with some new Valentine socks inside pink mailboxes and a love themed breakfast.
I haven't done Bentos as often lately so the girls were especially surprised to see one this morning. Kaitlyn even ate her toast, which is a big deal for her. I need to remind myself to do them more often.
Just before nap Kinsley whipped up some of this 'Fudge' we found on Pinterest. It was a perfect easy recipe for Kinsley to do and doing it right before nap made the time it needed to stay in the fridge easy to handle.
White chocolate chips
Dump the chocolate chips in a bowl and resist the urge to dive right in and eat them all. What? That's not just me right?
Melt them in the microwave and then add in the frosting and mix well.
Or if you're Kaitlyn just eat some and watch.
Doesn't this look good?
Then we spread it into a pan we coated with a bit of cooking spray and decorated the top with some heart sprinkles.
It's so cute!
Pop it in the fridge for a bit to harden and you're finished. I cut a few out with a heart shaped cookie cutter but I had a hard time getting them out of the pan in one piece. I think if we had used a smaller pan, so they would be a bit thicker, it wouldn't have been a problem.
I will warn you though, they are like eating pure sugar. Definitely a case of a little goes a long way.
We definitely won't be eating all of them with our after nap snack.
