Valentine’s day means you need ideas to make it special in your house! Do you have red food colouring on hand? Because it can make the ordinary, extraordinary!! Kid’s love to have something extra special at meal or snack time for any holiday and Valentine’s day is no exception!
momstown dug up some favourite Valentine treats that we’d love to try this Valentine’s Day!
Valentine Parfait: Stinkin’ easy but so pretty! Your kids could help with the layering and decorating with foamy stickers and voila ‘fancy’ dessert!
Valentine Cheesecake Bites: What’s not to love here?? Cute and delicious? I’m sold. AND yes, the littles can help with the cookie cutters and you score mama points too!
Candy Cane Valentine Heart Cupcakes: Have any candy canes still kicking around from Christmas? What a simple way to use them up in a Valentine way. Regular cupcake disguised as a Valentine! Little effort and maximum heart!
Valentine pretzel: Set up an assembly line for this treat for dipping into icing or melted chocolate and then sprinkles. A handful of these wrapped up would be a perfect Valentine gift for a special friend or teacher.
Pink Lemonade Valentine Pound Cake: Bring on the red / pink food colouring and colour this angel or coffee cake! This would be perfect for a princess birthday tea party too. Oh, the ideas!!
Valentine Candy Kabobs: Awesome kid friendly job to thread pink and red candies onto a skewer to share with friends. Might even replace a paper Valentine?
Valentine Vegan Cookies: No red foot dye here, just beet juice which is pretty brilliant really. It’s so stainy, put it to productive use!
Heart On a Stick Fruit Kabobs: Put your cookie cutters to good use! The polar opposite of ‘heart attack on a platter” with a platter of healthy hearts! You could create a platter of hearts or as pictured skewer with popsicle sticks for hearts on a stick!
Two Ingredient Valentine Fudge: Only two ingredients?? Yep. Frosting + White Chocolate Chips. Have fun making and eating these!
Divine Layered Valentine Cupcakes: Double the layers, double the fun? Despite being really pretty to look at, I’ve heard these are really delicious too with their creamcheese frosting.
Try Red Velvet Cupcakes from momstown Edmonton! Look in stores for the heart shaped trays for fun!
Enjoy these Valentine treats and make room for your impressive kiddos at your kitchen counter.
