Valentine's Day Sweet Treats

Hey Everyone!! Today i'm going to be sharing with you some yummy Valentine's Day treats!! :) Let's get started.

#1 - Valentine's Day Buttons


I found this idea on Pinterest and couldn't resist making some of my own, they are just too cute!!

All you need are these 3 ingredients:


  • Mini Pretzels
  • Hershey Kisses (or Hugs)
  • M&M's (the Valentine's ones)
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Lay your pretzels out onto a baking sheet and top with a Hershey Kiss. Once oven is ready, put the pretzels into the oven for 4-5 minutes or until the Kisses are shiny and soft (really keep an eye on them, as you don't want them to melt!!!) . Remove from oven and top them with a M&M.

#2 - White Chocolate Covered Strawberries


Nothing screams Valentine's Day to me more than Chocolate Covered Strawberries!!! These White Chocolate Covered Valentine's ones are so pretty with sprinkles on them!!

Here is what you need to make some for your Valentine:


  • Strawberries
  • Candy Melts (i used White/Vanilla)
  • Sprinkles (these are optional, but i think it jazzed them up a bit!)
Wash/Clean your strawberries first, and be sure to dry them too! I like to keep the stems on them, as it is easier to dip them, but you can take them off if you like. Then pour some of your candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and microwave them until they are melted (about 40 seconds). Dip your strawberries into the melted candy melts and then into sprinkles (if using). Place covered strawberries on baking sheet lined with wax paper to harden.

#3 - Heart Shaped Brownies


These were a bit tricky to make for me because brownies are fragile, but they taste delicious!!

Here is what you will need:


  • Brownies (already prepared from box mixI used Pillsbury Milk Chocolate)
  • Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter
  • Toppings: Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, Sprinkles (all optional)
Once your brownies are cooled, cut out heart shapes using cookie cutter. Put heart shaped brownie on plate and add toppings!

#4 - Red Velvet Milkshakes


shared these last year on my blog, but they are so yummy they are worth sharing again!

Here is what you need:
  • Vanilla Ice Cream (1 cup)
  • Red Velvet Cake Mix (3 tsp. of the dry mix)
  • Milk (1/2 cup)
  • Vanilla Extract (1 tsp.)
  • Whipped Cream and Sprinkles - Optional
Just add all ingredients into blender (except whipped cream and sprinkles) and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.

There you have it, some of my favorite Valentine's Day sweet treats!! Enjoy!!
