Valentine's Day

So sweet...  The grandkids received Snoopy cards and $5 from Gr. Gerald. Captain purchased coconut clusters for both of "his girls" and mailed one to Kirksville. I made the red velvet brownie bites for our homeschool party today. There's only one left for the photo. And, my friend Robin sent me a haute chocolate bar with a packet of pomegranate tea and her homemade Valentine card. Made my day!

Red Velvet Brownie Bites:
Add 1/2 bottle of red food coloring to your brownie batter (mix or homemade). Option: add 2 t. espresso coffee powder for mocha effect. Pour into greased mini muffin tins. Add cream cheese layer (4 oz. cream cheese beaten with 1 egg, 1/4 c. sugar, and 1 t. vanilla). Swirl slightly with knife or toothpick to create marbled effect. Bake as directed. Winger's new favorite treat.
