Valentine's Day Treats
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to dish up some delicious treats. Red, white and pink with lots of hearts in between. Plus, chocolate - lots and lots of chocolate.
Now is the time to bake, create and share the love with your loved ones. And if you make some extra goodies for yourself, who say you don’t deserve a special treat!
Make a special breakfast to share with your loved one. Go retro and make a stack of heart-shaped Belgium Waffles in the Nordic Ware Stovetop Cast Iron Waffle Maker. The waffle iron makes golden, fluffy waffles that should be piled high with your favorite toppings and shared with your sweetheart.
Hand pies were never so cute and delicious! The Norpro Mini Heart Pie Mold cuts out dough in the shape of heart, then you can choose your filling and seal! Cherries are a classic tried-and-true filling, but there are countless other fillings if cherry pie isn’t your jam. Lemon raspberry offers a bright, tart flavor, while strawberry cream cheese is a creamy treat stuffed inside a golden, buttery crust. If Nutella is your preferred filling, chomping into a hot, gooey Nutella and strawberry pie is heaven. Banana slices also pair well with the Nutella filling.
Make chocolate hearts to eat, give as a gift or to use as cupcake or cookie toppings. The Wilton Silicone Heart Mold easily releases your chocolate candies, so you don’t have to deal with broken hearts!
Making desserts for a crowd? Cut out 4 heart-shaped cookies at once with this cute cookie cutter. Once the dough is rolled out, it’s a cinch to cut, bake and decorate sugar cookies for dessert. If you’re craving cake instead of cookies, a batch of bite-sized cakes are sure to be a hit. The Nordic Ware pan makes six bite-sized three-tiered heart-shaped cakes. Red velvet, chocolate, rhubarb vanilla, make any flavor you want without the obligation of eating a full-sized cake!
