Valentines…just a little late

19 Feb

Had a busy week, but wanted to post some Valentines treats we made this week for teachers…and Dad!  We made Pioneer Woman’s chocolate cookies used for a dipping bar.  We made ours into heart shapes and dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkled with hearts.  They turned out really yummy.  My son helped for a bit, but he couldn’t stop licking his fingers so I made him move on to making his cards.

And, for dad, I made his favorite heart-shaped cake that I make every Valentine’s Day.  It’s an awesome mascarpone cake with a strawberry glaze.  The original recipe is for mini-cupcakes but I prefer making it into a cake.  My friend, Carrie, first introduced me to this cake years back. It is so delicious and so moist.  The original recipe is from Giada De Laurentiis on Food Network.  I’ve attached the link to the recipe, so you can enjoy it also!

Happy Valentine’s Day all over again!
