The Lake Country Mom about things you can do for the holiday with all of your loved ones. And this week, I experimented and made some simple chocolate treats with my mom.
There are a variety of Waukesha businesses that also have chocolate dipped items--cookies, pretzels, strawberries, and more. But if you are crunched for time, or you want to make something so it's more special, this could be your option.
These treats are so easy to whip together, it almost takes longer to preheat the oven or melt the chocolate in the microwave than make the actual treats. And the mess was very minimal and clean up was quick and easy.
We tried to "fork" or "toothpick" the cookies to help with the dipping, but the cookies wouldn't stay together or fell off in the chocolate. We settled for dipping half the treats.
My mom and I also figured out the calorie content of each treat, and honestly, they aren't that bad. (If you don't eat too many.)
My mom and I had a great time experimenting and making some treats. She took some home for my dad and I have some to share with Jake this week for a quick sweet treat for my sweetie. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day, no matter what you do.
