DIY: Mason Jar project part 1: Valentine

In the next few months, I’ll be posting DIY projects you can do using mason jars, I think they can be used for so many things, why not try them and show you guys. Here is my first project, since Valentine’s day is just around the corner, I’ve decided to make treats for my friends. Below are the things you’ll need and steps to follow, very easy and fun.



Add glue around the rim and apply the white ribbon, use another piece of white ribbon to make a nice bow, if you’re not sure how to make one, click here to find out. Once the bow is done glue it to the rim, make sure you apply it on top where the first ribbon ends, that way it’ll make it look like the ribbons are 1 piece.

This is what you’ll need to make the chocolate rice Krispies treats. The recipe goes as  follows;

  • 3/4 cup parowax (chopped up)
  • 3 cups of chocolate chips (Milk Chocolate or Semi sweet can be used, which ever you prefer)
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 4 cups of rice Krispies
In a large pot, on low heat, melt the following; chopped parowax, chocolate chips and the peanut butter. Stir until well blended, add icing sugar, stir and break up any lumps then add the rice krispies stir until well coated.  Remove from heat. Use and ice cream scoop or a spoon to drop the piece on a wax paper sheet to harden. The parowax is what helps to set the chocolate. Store in the fridge, prepare to give some away as this is a large recipe.


Yummy!!

Valentine’s day cupcake cups.

Perfect fit for the treats.
