Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a happy holiday filled with the ones you love. This Valentine’s Day I will be away in Mexico and I won’t be home to celebrate with my daughters. I always love getting them a small present, usually something dorky and uber mushy, a card and some yummy treats – like these Sweetheart Rice Krispies treats. We normally fill out Valentine’s cards for their friends at school too but this year both of the girls are ‘too cool’ for that!
Since I will be away, I went out and bought their gifts so that my mother can give those to the girls on Valentine’s Day. Feeling a bit heavy-hearted I went ahead and made some delicious treats for them today, a little pre-celebration if we must. They leave for a long weekend with their dad, he is taking them skiing, and they won’t arrive home until Tuesday evening which is after our departure. So cue in mushy, emotional mom, sneaking these delicious Sweetheart Rice Krispies Treats into their luggage so when they get to their dads house they will find them.
