Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats
Valentine’s Day is all about showing others how much we care about them. On February 14th, the tradition is to give your Valentine a gift like chocolates, a card, jewellery or flowers.
Valentine’s Day is named after a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia. The first mail-posted Valentine was recorded in 1806!
This year say “I Love You” by making a homemade Valentine’s treat.
Chocolate Marshmallow Rocky Roads
1 bag chocolate chips
1 bag coloured mini marshmallows
¼ cup non-dairy margarine
In a large pot, melt margarine. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add mini marshmallows and let melt slightly, stirring over low heat. Lightly grease a 9-inch baking pan. Pour mixture into pan, wet hands and smooth down mixture. Let set in the fridge and cut into bars.
For a special Valentine’s Day dessert, serve Rocky Roads alongside bowls of TOFUTTI PREMIUM® non-dairy frozen dessert
Valentine’s Day Chocolate Bark and Dairy-Free “Ice Cream Sundaes”
8 oz of milk or dark chocolate (can use a bar or chocolate chips)

In a large microwavable bowl, add ¼ cup of non-dairy margarine and melt in the microwave for about 20 – 30 seconds. Stir in 1 bag of chocolate chips or chopped chocolate and stir until melted.
