Today I had the most wonderful time making crafts and baking goodies! I call this Valentine's day a Choo-Choo valentine because my craft and goodies were both related with trains! Here is everything I made today:
I started with the Heart shaped Rice Crispy snacks. It was very very easy and fast, I was pleasantly surprised! (I got the recipe from here if anyone is interested). I started by melting the marshmallows:
Then I added the red food coloring and the rice crispy cereal. After it was well mixed, I started cutting the treats in heart shapes with a cookie cutter:
And voila! All done! It was so easy and fast, and very tasty too! I love how they turned out, I will have to make these again sometime :)
After finishing the rice crispies, I started making some cupcakes! Yum yum!
This year I decided to decorate them as a Love train! (Recipe from here). I used different types of candies to make the train and some decorating gel to make the tracks. They turned out sooo cute with the little "I Choo-choose you!" smoke signs! jeje I loved them :)
My boyfriend also decided to help decorate some muffins... his style is much more simple though! jaja I thought they were so cute anyway, he is soooo adorable:
The last thing I made for this Valentine's day is a Love train tissue box cover made out of Plastic Canvas!
I thought this craft was sooo adorable that I couldn't resist making it for this Valentine's day. It has the cutest little bear waving from the window:
It also has adorable heart details everywhere! Every time I look at it, I can't help but smile :)
