Crafting with Kara - Valentine's Day Treats

This weekend Kara asked me if she could use some of my baking supplies to make some treats.  I told her yes, but there was one catch, she had to take pictures of anything she made.  She had a hard time deciding what she wanted to make.  She knew she wanted to use strawberries, because we had recently bought some.  She then came across a bag of Red Velvet Candy melts, so she decided to make Valentine's Day treats. 

She melted candy melts in the microwave using the 30 second method.  She had that tube of red icing in the picture, because she thought she was going to use it, but then decided not too.  Do you notice that sticker on the bag of candy melts?   I did that last summer when I found out  How to Figure Out if Your Wilton Candy Melts have Expired

Once she melted the Red Velvet candy melts, she dipped in strawberries, marshmallows, and chocolate cookies. 

She laid the treats on parchment paper, and decorated with sprinkles and candy hearts. She even made a few heart shaped treats from the extra candy melts.  

Her treats definitely won't make it until Valentine's Day.  Just a little while after this picture was taken, all of the treats were gone.  I guess she will just have to make some more!
