It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I wanted to come up with something that wasn’t candy(although I have tons of great recipes perfect for Valentine’s Day if you’re interested) and I was worried that fruit may get squished at school before the party, so I wondered around my kitchen until I came up with these super cute, I’m Nuts About You Valentine treats.
The box of peanuts is from Costco, but if you have time I also found them on Amazon. It seems pricey, but really most classes only have about 25-30 kids so there will be plenty of leftover peanuts for your snacking pleasure.
Once all the pieces have been gathered, let the your little one put these together. My daughter is 8 so she can do the whole thing herself from cutting out the labels, folding them, and stapling them onto the bags of peanuts.
Use a white sharpie to let your Valentine sign his/her name and if they are old enough have them write the names of their classmates (although, I’ll admit it…sometimes it’s quicker and easier if I do it).
Now obviously, this is not a good Valentine if there is someone in the class with a peanut allergy, so make sure to double check with the teacher.
