3 Ingredient Valentine's Recipe Ideas

 For those of you who get into the spirit of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd go through the blog and pick out a few ideas for you. 

I'm not planning anything for that date, other than attending a party a friend is throwing, but if you're so inclined and want to make something for your special someone's, here are a couple of ideas.

I made these Coconut Covered Marshmallows a couple of years ago, and had fun making them, as well as eating them.

Just three basic ingredients.  Large marshmallows, cream and coconut. 
You can get really wild with these, tint the coconut pink for Valentine's Day? or green for St. Patty's Day or maybe even tint the coconut the colors of your favourite football team and bring them with you on Game Day.  Just sayin...  I just toasted the coconut for this batch. 

The nuts are optional, but necessary, I think. 

Here's another fun one.  Cherry Cheese Pinwheels.   Again just three ingredients.  Cream Cheese, Maraschino Cherries and bread.   A blast from the past.
You can fancy these up by adding chopped toasted nuts to the filling as well. 

Last, but not least,  Truffles.  Three ingredients, Heavy Cream, Chocolate and Nuts.
