Need a last minute treat for Valentine's Day? These are easy peasy and so cute and yummy! I made them this morning for a Valentine's party we are heading to. I had all the ingredients in the pantry and voila, a yummy treat! If you have kids with peanut allergies, just omit the peanut butter. You will probably be fine without adding anything else, but you could add more butter and marshmallows if your worried about needing more moisture. Happy Valentine's Day (tomorrow)!
