With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I was over at Thirty Handmade Days last week to share three Valentine’s Day treat ideas! Whether you’re making treats to share at your kids’ school party or a grown up party at the office, these cute little treats are sure to win the heart of your Valentine!
These delicate and adorable little heart sprinkles served as the inspiration for all three treats. This set of sprinkles ranks in my top 3 from my extensive sprinkle collection.
Sweetheart Cupcake Minis
Using a mini muffin pan, bake your favorite cake mix in Valentine’s day themed mini cupcake liners. Using a small round tip fitted in a piping bag (or plastic sandwich bag), pipe whipped vanilla frosting on your cooled cupcakes. Top with a single heart sprinkle!
Meringue Ice Cream Cones
Melt white candy wafers or melting chocolate according to package instructions. Dip a mini cake cone half way into the chocolate and sprinkle with nonpareils. Place a small meringue upside-down into the cone. Spread some melted chocolate on the bottom of the meringue to act as glue and place another meringue right-side-up on top. Using a toothpick, dab some melted chocolate on a heart sprinkle and adhere to the top of your meringue. Package in a small cellophane treat bag tied with pretty red ribbon. These treats can also be filled with candy or a special message inside the cone!
Chocolate Dipped Fortune Cookies
Melt white candy wafers or melting chocolate according to package instructions. Dip half a fortune cookie in melted white chocolate and place on wax paper to cool. Place a single heart sprinkle on top. Once completely cooled, these can be packaged in Chinese takeout boxes. There are many cute Valentine’s themed takeout boxes available in stores right now!
Hope you liked my ideas. Give them a try and let me know how it goes, you know you want to!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!
