Valentine's Day shouts, "Chocolate!!!" but there are so many wonderful treats you can prepare for the day of love. For breakfast last year we made heart shaped pancakes and let the kids spray whipping cream on top, add syrup, and shake on sprinkles. We even had cherries to top them off.
The dessert possibilities are endless. You can prepare fondue or make a cheesecake.
You can make heart, flower, and lip-shaped cookies, Cherry Rice Krispie Treats, or just settle for pink cupcakes.
You can visit endless websites like Bisquick, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Food TV, Land O' Lakes, Eagle Brand, Kraft, Wilton, McCormick, Nestle meals.com, etc...
My husband doesn't like chocolate (I know, he's strange) so I have been collecting white chocolate recipes.
-Here is a Valentine candy bouquet that I made several years ago.
-For dinner you can make a homemade heart-shaped pizza or heart-shaped breadsticks with a pizza fondue sauce. You could make any type of casserole or chicken pot pie in a heart-shaped pan.
-Whether you are baking for your sweetie, your kids, or a party, you'll find what you're looking for with the resources above! But don't forget, the kids don't really care WHAT you make, it's the time you spend together!
-Let me know if you find a fun site I don't have listed.
Edited to add-This site has Valentine Smoothies that look fabulous (thanks Rebecca).
