Hello and Welcome to January’s Pinterest Challenge!

Each month, our lovely host Cindy from CountyRoad407.com, chooses a theme each month to inspire a group of creative blogging buddies.

Instead of a home decor project this month, Cindy put a little twist on the challenge this month. The Pinterest Challenge for January is all about Valentine desserts!

Sweet Treats

I have a sweet tooth, and I love easy to make treats. Some of my favorites I have shared are Traditional Scottish Shortbread, Fabulous Five Ingredient Raspberry Bars, and these Chocolate Mint Cookies. I think you’ll enjoy these Chocolate Covered Rice Cakes too!

How to Make these Easy Chocolate Covered Rice Cakes

  1. First, in a microwave-safe bowl, follow the directions on the package to melt the chocolate wafers so it is smooth. (I microwaved the wafers for 30 seconds on 50% power and then for two rounds of 15 seconds each, on 50% power. Do not overheat.)
  2. Dip the rice cake into the chocolate, covering one side.
  3. Place the rice cake, chocolate side up, on the parchment paper so the chocolate can set and harden.

    Lynne, I love those Skinny Pop rice cakes and this is a perfect way to eat healthy yet have a little chocolate goodness without breaking the post-holiday diet!! 😉 I’ve been munching my way through winter and need to knock it off. I’ve been better this week at school with salads. Here’s to lighter treats!

    Thank you for the easy recipe. <3
    Happy Valentine's hugs,
    Barb 🙂
