Valentine’s Day Treats

Hi everyone,

Before we get into today’s post I want to say that today is the 12th and that means that it’s the 5 year anniversary of this blog! As always I’m incredibly grateful for all of the follows, reads, like, shares, comments, everything and here’s to many more in the future. On to today, as Valentine’s Day is on Friday, I thought today would be the perfect day to share some Valentine’s Day treats. Whether you’re having a party or just a chill night, these are perfect.

The first treat we have is Red Velvet Blossoms. I always love cookies like this and they’re typically super simple to make.

What You Need:

  • 1 box of red velvet cake mix
  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 jar of red sugar crystals
  • 28 Hershey’s Kisses

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Then take a bowl, you can do this in a stand mixer as well, add in your cake mix, oil, water and the egg. Mix that until it’s well combined and there are no lumps of cake mix.
  • Next pour the red sugar crystals into a bowl and set to the side. Take your scoop and get about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of the dough and drop that into the red sugar. Make sure the dough ball is evenly and completely coated.
  • Place the dough balls on the baking sheet a couple inches apart and bake them for 8-10 minutes.
  • Once the cookies come out of the oven immediately press a Hershey’s Kiss into the center and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second treat we have is Valentine’s Day Puppy Chow. I love puppy chow, I make it for pretty much all holidays and it’s always such a crowd-pleaser.

What You Need:

  • 5 cups of Chex cereal
  • 5 ounces of white candy melts
  • 5 ounces of pink candy melts
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 cup of Valentine’s M&M’s
  • 1/2 cup of small cinnamon heart candies

What You Do:

  • So the first thing you’re going to do is take 2 1/2 cups of the Chex, pour it in a large bowl and set that aside. Then take the white candy melts put them in a microwave safe bowl and microwave them in 30 second increments until melted and smooth. Pour that over the cereal you set aside and stir until it’s evenly coated.
  • Then take 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pour over the coated cereal making sure to evenly coat that.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet, spreading it out to cool completely.
  • You’re going to do the same thing with the other half of the cereal. Place it in the same bowl and set aside. This time take the pink coating chocolate and melt in the microwave in 30 second increments until melted and smooth and pour that over the cereal and stir until evenly coated.
  • Coat with the remaining powdered sugar and salt, transfer to a separate baking sheet to cool completely.
  • Once both are cooled, combine in a large bowl, add in the M&M’s and the cinnamon hearts and stir to combine.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second to last treat we have is Sweetheart Milkshakes. Milkshakes are such a fun dessert this one sounds delicious.

What You Need:

  • 2 to 3 cups of vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 5-6 fresh strawberries
  • 4 tablespoons of strawberry syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa (if you want a red velvet flavor)
  • White melting chocolate
  • Red or pink sprinkles
  • Whipped cream

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is put your ice cream, milk, strawberries and strawberry syrup in a blender and blend until smooth. If you want to add the cocoa, this is where you would do it.
  • Next melt your white chocolate. Then take your glass and dip the rim in the melted chocolate, making sure it’s well coated. Then dip in your red/pink sprinkles and allow to set.
  • Pour your milkshake into the glass, top with whipped cream and red/pink sprinkles.
  • Serve and enjoy!

And the last treat we have is White Chocolate Valentine’s Day Popcorn. Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks and I love to jazz it up like this for holidays.

What You Need:

  • 10 cups of popped popcorn
  • 12 ounces of white chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons of sprinkles
  • 1 cup of conversation hearts

What You Do:

  • The first step is to take the popped popcorn and place it in a large bowl. Then you’re going to melt your white chocolate. Once you’ve done that pour the melted chocolate over the popcorn and stir until it’s evenly coated.
  • Then add in the sprinkles and conversation hearts and stir.
  • Pour popcorn out onto a baking sheet to cool completely.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys make any of these treats let me know how they turn out and if not I’d love to know what your favorite Valentine’s Day treats are.

Until next time, have fun baking and I hope you all have a happy Valentine’s Day :).
