You don't need to spend a fortune on chocolates and flowers for Valentine's Day. With a little imagination you can come up with a few cute ideas to make yourself; and homemade is always better. Chocolate covered strawberries are always known to be romantic. The Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Roses Bouquet is adorable and pretty easy to do. You will have flowers and candy taken care of in one shot if you make these.

M&M's makes a cherry flavored M&M now. If you like chocolate covered cherries, these are a must try-really good flavor! You can make a batch of Cherry Marshmallow Rice Krispy Treats with these M&M's and they are sure to be devoured.

One more treat you can easily put together is Strawberry Fudge. All you need is white chocolate chips and a container of strawberry frosting. Melt the chocolate chips and then mix in the strawberry frosting. Spread in a buttered pan and chill. You can press M&M's or candy hearts into the fudge to decorate before chilling if desired.

Each of these snack ideas can be made fairly easily and inexpensively and are sure to be enjoyed by adults as well as children.
