Sweet Treats for Valentines

All of these treats are sweet and can be made without expensive ingredients or exclusive tools. Sometimes a little tweak in the presentation is all it takes to make an old ingredient seem new. These treats are all easy to make, easy to give and easy to store. If only they were easy on the hips…

Try strawberry cupcakes with pink icing or red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Use red sprinkles or red decorating icing that you purchased on sale after Christmas. Save the green icing for St. Patrick’s Day.

Sweet Treats for Valentines

Directions: Here is an easy way to transform regular cupcakes into heart shaped delights without purchasing any special tools. All you need to do is drop a glass marble into each cupcake hole either before or after filling your cupcake sleeves 3/4 of the way up with batter.

These are rice krispies treats that were pressed into small heart shaped and and then partially covered in melted chocolate. Again, an easy twist on a tried and true recipe. I make them every year and no one seems to tire of their festive design or familiar flavor. I sometimes put each in a clear lollipop bag and add a ribbon to close. They can then be passed out to all the Valentines on your list. To make these treats see Valentine’s Day Rice Krispie Treats

Fudge is also a dessert that speaks to the heart. Use your heart cookie cutters on a batch of fudge for your sweetheart. To learn how to make quick and easy fudge see our sweetened condensed fudge recipe page.
