Valentine’s Day is finally here. What are your plans for tonight? We’re having dinner in and then heading to the local frozen yogurt shop for their buy one get one free deal. Yep, I said it. I’m not making our dessert tonight despite all of the Valentine dessert recipes I’ve been posting! Tonight, I’m getting treated!
Today, I’m giving our friends this box of chocolates, which are actually cupcakes. I bookmarked this a few years ago in my Hello! Cupcake book and never had the chance to make them. This year, it was a must. It’s an absolutely adorable idea and super easy despite what it may seem. Just make a batch of your favorite chocolate cupcakes in miniature cupcake pans (even a box mix will do) and then frost them with chocolate icing. Decorate as you prefer, then place them in a heart shaped box. The Hello! Cupcake book suggests using chocolate jimmies, red and white jimmies, marshmallows cut in half then dipped in melted frosting, Valentine’s candy corn, red Dots, Valentine’s M&M’s and other Valentine’s candies.
Hope you have a fantastic Valentine’s evening!
