Chocolate Covered Valentines’s Day Twinkies
I saw this on Pinterest and decided it would be a fun activity for the kids and something we could bring to a play date.
– White or milk chocolate bark (found in the baking aisle)
– Fun toppings (nuts, sprinkles, candy bars, coconut, peppermint)
You need a clear glass bowl to melt the chocolate in the microwave. Melt 6 cubes for 30 seconds, take out and stir, and continue with 30 second increments until melted.
Spread the bottom of the Twinkie with chocolate and place in freezer for about a minute or two to harden. My niece Abbey discovered this trick and it made dipping the rest and decorating much easier!
After the bottom has hardened, spread the rest of the Twinkie with chocolate. Immediately add fun topics. I like using coconut because I feel it gives a nice finished look.
We placed them in treat bags.
I can honestly say I tried to not have one bite because of the million calories they contain. I caved and will say they tasted SO good! It was worth every calorie!
