25 Sweet Treats For Your Valentine

I’m digging back into the archives today to share 25 Sweet Treats For Your Valentine!

Valentine’s Day is a-comin.

Whether you’re a celebrator or not, there is absolutely no reason that you can’t use this holiday as a reason to indulge your sweet tooth.  I mean, let’s tell it like it is.

 

I share Valentine’s Day with one of our kid’s birthdays.  SO basically that means no Vday for me..which is ok.  Although I wouldn’t be UPSET to be surprised with jewelry or other love-gifts, ie-Tory Burch, Kate Spade etc…

 

But in the case that doesn’t happen, let’s talk about treats that you can surprise your tummy with.

Let’s start with Strawberry stuff.

25 Sweet Treats For Your Valentine! www.cookiesandcups.com

2 Ingredient Strawberry Fudge: This one is super easy and great for kid’s parties.  It’s INTENSELY sweet, so a little goes a long way!

Strawberry S’mores:  I love these guys….they are so yummy and pretty when they are put together.  Plus they’re on a stick, and we all know food is better on a stick.

Strawberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars:  I could eat infinity of these and never get full.  That’s a truth.

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies: Simple, sweet and pretty.  That’s Valentine’s Day in a nutshell.

Strawberry Shortcake Whoopie Pies: These are gorgeous and delicious.  Slightly messy, but one of my favorites!

Strawberry Gooey Butter Cookies: I love how easy and addicting these are! Made them last year and they quickly became a year-round favorite! They also start with a cake mix, which is a huge time saver!

Strawberry Mousse Sugar Cookie Cups: Another old-time favorite of mine.  These are the prettiest cookie and super impressive looking.  BUT they are SIMPLE.  Love desserts like that!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake: This is the recipe where I overcame my fear  of baking a cheesecake.  Plus it’s AMAZINGLY delicious.  Make this.

Strawberries and Cream Bars: These are a simple bar, that starts with a cake mix that can be enjoyed at breakfast as easily as dessert!

 

Up next let’s hit on Red Velvet…

Whoopie Pie Cupcakes with Red Velvet Frosting:  I just made these pretty recently, but I LOVE them!  There are so many possibilities with that frosting!

Red Velvet Popcorn: The perfect little snacking treat!  Cake and Popcorn together in one place!!

Red Velvet Cake Krispie Treats: Another really easy, but amazing treat.  Perfect no-bake dessert for your kid’s Valentine’s party!

Pink Velvet Fruity Pebble Whoopie Pies: These aren’t’ technically red velvet, but they are pink!  And the Fruity Pebble Filling is outrageously good!

 

Now, of course we have to talk chocolate…

Blackout Cupcakes: Well, these are everything.  They are a Devil’s Food Cupcake with Brownie Batter Filling topped with a Whipped Chocolate Ganache Frosting, Brownies and chocolate ships and drizzle.  Out. Of. Control.

Karamel Sutra Cupcakes: Well, doesn’t the name say it all?  These cupcakes have a few steps, but are completely worth it!  They’re based on the popular Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream flavor!

Chocolate Covered Cheerios: These guys are addicting!  Covering the Cheerios in chocolate was no small feat, but I was THRILLED with the results!

Hot Chocolate on a Stick: I made this SO many years ago, but it’s still such a fun recipe to revisit!  The name says it all!

 

Other randoms…

Swiss Meringue Buttercream: Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to try out this super rich and buttery frosting.  It’s my “special occasion frosting”.. I mean, if that’s a thing!

Neapolitan Cookie Sandwiches: These are such a fun…chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.  Kids LOVE these!  Plus, I flavored the cookie dough with Hershey’s Syrups.  Boom!

Glass Topper Valentine’s Cookies: These simple cut out cookies are made even prettier with a poured frosting!  Love cutting a hole in the center and using them for a glass topper!

Rainbow Ganache Cake: This cake is so simple, but looks stunning!  The step by step instructions will walk you right through the process.

Zebra Cake Cupcakes: These aren’t necessarily Valentine’s-ish… but the black and white make them pretty, don’t you think?

Buttermint Sugar Cookie Cups: The pastel colors on these easy cookie cups is what made me decide to include them.  Also, SUPER EASY!

Heart Shaped Krispie Treats: These would be so fun packaged up and given as gifts.  Love a krispie treat!

 

 

Hope you have a fantastic Valentine’s Day! Eat up!
