I love being a blogger! I have met some really great people, learned a lot about myself and pushed myself in ways I never would’ve thought before. My favorite part about blogging is the creative release (and motivation) it gives me. My boys’ favorite part is all the treats, goodies and toys they get to help create and destroy/devour. They especially love when we get to make stuff for holidays. Because they are still young, my oldest will be 3 this year, they don’t yet realize that I am making things early and not on the actual holiday. I hope I don’t break their hearts in a few years when they realize Christmas, Valentine’s Day, 4th of July, aren’t month long holidays, only one day. Their smart I’m sure they’ll be figure it out, right?!
We’ve been making Valentine’s treats for a few weeks now (Check out my healthy Valentine’s here) and today’s treat has by far been their favorite. It was also the first time I let Rohrl help me make Jello. It is so much easier having someone else stir the Jello until it dissolves than doing it yourself! These sweet treats take little time to prepare but do take time to set up; so if you are making them for a party or get together I suggest making them a day or two ahead of time.
Valentine's Day Ombre Treat
- 2 boxes Strawberry or Raspberry Jello (3oz. boxes)
- 1 tub cool whip
- 2 cups greek yogurt
- Open one box of Jello and prepare according to box directions.
- Pour Jello evenly and equally into cups.
- Let Jello sit in fridge for at least 3 hours or until fully set.

- Spoon 1/2 cup greek yogurt on top of each cup.
