Valentine’s Day Sweet Treat RecipesWith the special day just around the corner, it’s time to start planning what kind of treats you’ll be making for your special people this year. Here are some of my favorite Valentine’s Day Sweet Treat Recipes I think you’ll enjoy making AND eating! Most of them are heart-shaped and colored Pink, White or Red. Could you just bake a red velvet cake? Yes, you could, but these recipes are really festive and kitschy – just like a Hallmark Valentine’s Day Card! So let’s get to it!
Chocolate Cherry Poptarts via TinselboxPastry, Chocolate, and Cherries oh my! Don’t let the word “Poptart” put you off, these beauties have everything for everyone! “Poptarts” might sound enticing to your kids, but you could still tell your colleagues they’re “pastries.” I LOVE that she makes the real pastry dough instead of buying store-bought, which would probably be totally fine if you’re short on time. You will need a heart-shaped cookie cutter for this recipe.
Valentine’s Chocolate Pretzel Bites via Mom FabulousThese pink & white pretties are made with white & dark chocolate and are the perfect combination of salty and sweet – the best of both worlds! What I love most about this recipe is that it only has 4 ingredients and is really fun to make with kids! You do need the right sprinkles though. (They also make for awesome gifts when packaged up in these cute Valentine’s treat boxes!)
Valentine Raspberry Meltaways via Moneywise MomsHave tons of fun making these delicious pink, white and red Valentine’s shortbread cookies with your kids this year!
Chocolate Buttercream Cookies via Hearth & VineIt’s not easy to find chocolate Valentine’s treats, but I got lucky with this one. This recipe for chocolate heart-shaped sandwich cookies is easy to make with your little helpers. What child doesn’t love cutting out and frosting cookies? (Got limited counter space for cooling all these treats? Check this out!)
Super Easy M&M Cake Bars via Moneywise MomsHeading to a Valentine’s Day party, or just need a treat for the kids’ lunchboxes? These Super Easy M&M Cake Bars only have five ingredients (one is water!), and they’re quick to make.
