Valentine's day snacks

B A K I N G

Hey guys and welcome back to another post. With Valentines day just around the corner I thought this post would be perfect for those who are looking for the perfect snacks for Valentines day. This isn’t technically baking, but sort of comes under this category.

– LETS GET STARTED –

Firstly, you are going to want to melt some chocolate over the hob. I decided to use dark chocolate because I don’t know why but, dark chocolate fit Valentine’s day more for me. Break up chocolate and place it in a clear bowl, then get a pan and fill it up with water and put it on the hob. Place the bowl on the pan (making sure that the water doesn’t touch the bottom on the bowl) continue to stir until all choc is melted.

Ingredients:

Sea salted pretzels

Melted chocolate

Red hundreds and thousands

Equipment:

A plate

Method:

Step one: Place the pretzels in the bowl of melted chocolate and hold it above the bowl so the excess chocolate will drop off the pretzel.
Step two: Once all of the chocolate from the pretzel has stopped running, dip the chocolate side in the red hundreds and thousands.
Step three: Place the pretzels on a plate and then when you have done as many as you like, place them in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. Once the chocolate is completely dry, they are ready. Be careful when trying to get them off of the plate as you don’t want to break them (which I did multiple times) maybe use a knife and dig around the chocolate side of the pretzel. It should move off the plate very easy.

Ingredients:

Strawberries

Melted chocolate

Icing / sprinkles that you want to decorate your strawberries with

Equipment:

A plate

Method:
Step one: Make sure you have washed and dried your strawberries, then one by one place them into the bowl of chocolate making sure to get all around the sides of the strawberries.
Step two: Place them on a bowl that is big enough to big in your fridge. If you are dipping the strawberries into sprinkles, then wait for the chocolate to drip off of the strawberries and then dip them into the sprinkles. If you are just wanting to put chocolate on them, pop them in the fridge for 10-20 minutes, until the chocolate is fully dried.
Step three: Once you have decorated them, put them back in the fridge for another 5-10 minutes and then once they are dried they are ready. ( Strawberries are always better cold anyway 🙂 )

Ingredients:

Sweet & Salted popcorn

Pink or red food colouring / gel

White chocolate

Sprinkles

Chocolate

Could add marshmallows

Equipment:

A bowl

A knife

Method:
Step one: Get some food colouring / gel and squeeze it all over the popcorn. Then using your hands mix it all together, so it coats the popcorn.
Step two: Cut up some chocolate and sprinkle in some chunks of chocolate and then add some sprinkles over it.
Step three: Get some white chocolate and drizzle this over everything. Place this in the fridge for 5 minutes. Then you are done.
(just be careful with the food colouring / gel as it won’t completely dry, it might come off on your fingers)
