Eating The Love

February Sweet Treats!

Isabella Highfill, Writer/Reporter


When it comes to February, the month of love does not get a lot of fans. But it does not mean you can’t enjoy it! You can still spend the famous holiday of love with friends or family, and plan a day together to bake treats, and keep them for yourselves!

The holiday consists with colors such as red, pink, or white, which are also great colors to make your treats look cute and yummy! Great treats to make are ones that stand out, and ones that all can enjoy.


Peanut Butter Cookies With Chocolate Hearts

Materials Needed:

  • Hershey Milk Chocolate Hearts (valentines special)
  • Peanut butter cookie Mix (any variety of your choosing)
  • Bowls,  mixing devices, measuring cup
  • Eggs, oil, water

Follow the instructions according to your peanut butter cookie mix. Roll cookies together and onto the pan into the oven.

When cookies are done, unwrap your chocolate cookie heart and get them ready to press into the cookie. The tricky part is to try and not let the hearts melt since the cookies are still hot. Make sure cookies cool down too a lukewarm temperature, not to hot but warm enough to make sure the chocolate can press down into the cookie.

Feel free to add desired designs and special decor to your liking!



Love Colored Oreo balls

Materials Needed:

  • Thin Stuffed Chocolate Oreos
  • Cream Cheese
  • Red Food Dye
  • Candiquik Melting Chocolate
  • Bowls (small and large ones)
  • Chopper

Take the single stuff oreos and chop (or blend) until it feels and looks powder-like. Blend the whole package or as many as you plan on making. One batch could make 30 oreo balls according to size. When the oreo is in its powder stage, add one block of cream cheese and mush it together until it turns into a soft fudge-like stage. (in order to make more, the ratio is 1:1)

Refrigerate mix until firm and able to roll into small balls.


Melt colored chocolate (in separate bowls) and make sure your oreos are rolled before you start to dip them. You are able to do any design to your desire, either if it’s dipping it each in different colors, or dipping in one color and drizzling the others on it, making it more detailed.

When done put treats back into refrigerator so the chocolate will harden and soon be ready to serve or eat!



Rice Crispy Hearts

Materials Needed:

  • Jet-Puffed Mini Marshmallows
  • Kellogg’s Rice Crispy Cereal
  • Stick Butter
  • Pink Food Dye
  • Bowl
  • Will be needing a heating source


Melt 3 tablespoons of butter, and 4 cups of jet-puffed mini marshmallows all together. While the butter and marshmallows are melted together add  6 cups of Kellogg’s Rice crispy cereal into another bowl and stir till all is stuck together.

Put aside to cool down, after a few minutes, it’s time to mold your hearts! Butter your palms and fingers so that the rice krispies are easier to shape and won’t stick to your hands as much (you may have to reapply butter in between making hearts). Shape each rice crispy into the heart shape of your choosing, when done set aside to cool and form their shape. If you want to, you are welcome to add your own designs such as candy heart, sprinkles, or drizzled chocolate.
