This is what I made the kids for lunch February 4th. All of you health nuts–look away. I called the kids to come eat. The looks on their faces and the excited chatter did wonderful things for this mama’s heart! I simply used a cookie cutter to make the heart shapes from slices of homemade bread. I spread Nutella hazelnut chocolate in between the slices and around the hearts. (You could use chocolate peanut butter too. Or you could do jelly in the middle and peanut butter on the outside.) Then I spread the chocolate around the heart and added the sprinkles.
Well since I had all of the left over bread from the cut out hearts I decided to make bread pudding the next day.
I had never made bread pudding before. I did a Google search, picked this recipe, and went to work. The only thing I did differently was adding three drops of red food coloring to the sauce, making it a pretty pink for our Valentine moment of the day on February 5th. It was really good! We can’t decide which of the treats has been our favorite.
