Chocolate Play Dough – Make play dough using your favorite recipe. Omit the food coloring and let the children knead the dough in cocoa. It will look and smell like chocolate.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Dough – Mix 1 cup smooth peanut butter, 1 cup chocolate icing, and one cup instant milk in a bowl. Give each child a heaping spoonful. Let them mold chocolates and wrap them up in plastic wrap. This makes a special gift for their parents.
Valentine Sandwich – You will need a heart shaped cookie cutter, bread, cream cheese, and red food coloring to make this sandwich. Mix the cream cheese with red food coloring until it is pink. Cut a heart out of the bread with the cookie cutter. Spread on the cream cheese.
