The best part of Valentine’s Day for me is getting to indulge in a little something sweet! I love dessert and when it is pink and has a heart on it, who can resist? Here are some gorgeous treats that you can whip up at home. Just click on any of the photographs below to get to the recipe!
I hope one of these ideas will inspire you. Let us know if you make any of these and how it turned out 🙂
Chocolate Heart Peanut Butter Cookies from Betty Crocker. How cute are these? I love that the directions call for a store-brought cookie mix! Very easy. I’m thinking this would be a fun activity with a toddler. They’d love placing the Dove heart in the center.
If your baking skills are a little more advanced, you can try making these adorable Valentine’s Day Heart Cookie Sandwiches by Make and Takes. Again, you could definitely do this with a toddler or child.
Heart-shape Macaroon by Trang’s Kitchen. Have you ever made macaroons? I think they are to-die-for but I’ve never had the guts to make these. Maybe next time my mum is visiting, we can attempt whipping up some!
My husband loves ice-cream so these Chocolate Heart Ice Cream Sandwiches by Pieces of Home Designs are sure to be a huge hit in our house!
Lollipop sticks turn plain cupcakes into these adorable Cupid’s Arrow Cupcakes! Thanks for the tutorial and free download, Bakerella. I think these would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day social or toddler play group.
Brownie Heart Cupcakes by Martha Stewart are also really cute. Martha of course makes everything from scratch but if you don’t feel like following her recipes and making brownies and cupcakes then you could get store-brought mixes instead. Or cheat even further- buy a pan of ready made brownies and some cupcakes from your local bakery and then use your cookie cutter to make the brownie hearts!!!!
