How to Make the easiest 3 Ingredient Valentine Treats 

To start with, you need 3 ingredients.

Nothing more!

Pretzel twists (you could use squares, but the twists look like hearts, so if available, go for the twists, as a preference)

Rolo-chocolate caramel candy (You could also use the milk chocolate or almond Hershey’s Kisses, to mix things up)

Valentine M&Ms (The pink and red M&Ms)

 Valentine Treats for Kids

Start by laying out the pretzels, on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper.

Next, while your oven preheats to 350 degrees Fahrenheit,

place a Rolo (or Hershey’s Kiss) on each pretzel twist.

Once your tray is ready, place it in the oven for 2-4 minutes.

The key is to have the Rolos/Hershey’s Kisses start to soften, but not melt all the way through!

As soon as you get the tray out of the oven,

carefully place an M&M on each Rolo/Kiss, and gently press it into the softened chocolate,

allowing the chocolate to spread not ooze!

If your chocolate quickly loses shape as you press the M&M into it, you know your chocolate has melted

and while your treat will still taste good, it won’t hold shape and look as great.

We left our tray in the oven a few seconds too long.

You can see the chocolate is in that in-between stage of just-right and melted.

Set the prepared 3 ingredient Valentine treats aside to cool.

Once the Rolos have set, serve your Valentine’s treats,

and then place the leftovers in an airtight container…

uhm, that is, if you have any extras left over.

The kids love these!! Valentine Treats for Kids
