If you’re a working parent like me, you know how hectic the weeks can be. Between shuffling

  the kids off to school each day, planning meals and getting the kids to their weekly events, there is little time left for anything extra.

This Valentine’s Day, if your kids are begging to bring treats to school to share with the whole class, don’t worry. You’ve got this. Here are some very simple treats you can make with your kids. You’ll need very few ingredients and just a little time to prepare.

Enjoy and have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine Marshmallow Pops          

From Glorious Treats


  • One bag of strawberry marshmallows
  • Chocolate
  • Sprinkles
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Small cellophane bags (if you want to wrap them up)

1.  Push a lollipop stick into each marshmallow.

2.  Melt some chocolate (chocolate chips are not recommended) You will need 4-8 oz. of chocolate, depending on how many marshmallows you make.

3.  Dip one marshmallow at a time into the chocolate.

4.  Allow excess chocolate to drip off and then sprinkle your choice of sprinkles onto the chocolate.

5.  Set the marshmallow pop (stick down) on a flat surface on parchment paper and allow to set. You can also cool in the fridge.

6.  Once the chocolate is set, package up however you’d like.

7.  Share with friends and enjoy!
