It's Foodie Friday Valentine

It's Foodie Friday and it's not too early to start planning for sweet treats for our Valentines. 

Why choose between sweet candy and yummy cake when you can both in one bite?  I tried these easy treats from Bakerella using a heart shaped cookie cutter instead of rolling them into balls and my DH has declared them delish.  I used white Ghiradelli melting chocolate.   These are very sweet but oh so good.  You can find the recipe on the Bakerella site.  They do take a bit of time but the results are worth it.  I found that chilling the cake/frosting shapes made dipping much easier.

I decided to package up a few of these...they keep awesomely well.  I love to surprise my sweet hubby by putting a treat in his car on Valentine's Day for him to find on the way to work.  The Cutting Cafe made this little wrap up super easy.  I printed the paper on SU Pretty in Pink using the Cutting Cafe's Words of Love Printable Stamp set.  After printing the paper I cut out this easy treat wrapper using the Cutting Cafe's Heart Goodie Bag Holder template.

I was able to fit 5 of those delicious little cake hearts into my goodie bag.  Sweet hubby will be so happy.  Lots of sparkly red glitter on the cut out heart highlights the treats inside.  I used the leftover Words of Love printed paper to make this simple card:

A bit of May Arts ribbon trim, some bling and a stamped sentiment that I had leftover from last year and done!

If you're a regular follower either through a feed or email, don't forget to go here to guess how much lucious May Arts ribbon is in the pile.  Just follow the instructions on the linked post. 

Poor DH is heading to the dr. tomorrow.  He's coming down with the sore throat and cough again!  It's been a full month and he thought we were both getting better.  The coughing is worse at night.  We pray that all of you in that freezing cold and snow stay well.

Pin It!
