DIY Valentines Treat & Gift

Hey! With Valentines Day being less than a week away I'm going to share 2 Valentines DIYs with you, these are great to give to your BFF. They're both super easy, affordable, and cute. 

Besties Valentine Gift!
This one is also good for a valentines party favor.

picked up this pink heart pale in the dollar area at Target and filled it with some cute things like chocolate (this pack was $1 at Target), fuzzy socks from the Target dollar area, and some pink lip gloss from Victoria Secret. This is perfect to give to a friend or an affordable favor if you're having friends over. 

Red Velvet Rice Crispy Treats!
These can be given as a gift too, just box them up and put a cute label on it. 
I got this recipe from the Febuary issue of American Girl magazine and just added the white chocolate drizzle.

1 10.5 ounce bag of mini marshmallows 
3Tbs. Butter
1/4 cup dry red velvet cake mix (sifted)
6 cups rice crispy cereal 
White Chocolate 

These are pretty much just like making regular rice crispy treats except you add the cake mix to it. 
First melt your butter in the microwave, this should take about 30-45 seconds. Stir in the marshmallows & heat it for 20 seconds at a time stirring inbetween until smooth & melted. Add the cake mix to your marshmallow mixture and stir until blended. Then add cereal and stir until it's evenly coated (this part I ended up doing with my hands).
Now spread the mix in a 9 x 13in pan, the recipe says to use a spoon. If you use a spoon make sure to butter the back of it first or you can just use your hands. 
Then let it cool down a bit and grab your heart cookie cutter to cut out some hearts. Once you're done with that grab your white chocolate, I used a whole bar. Melt in the microwave at 20 second intervals stirring inbetween so that the chocolate doesn't burn. Take a spoon and drizzle it on too of your hearts. Enjoy!

I hope you all have a great Valentines Day whether you're spending it with your girls, one your own or with that special someone. As always, follow me on Bloglovin & Pinterest.
