Valentine Treats

2012 February 14

Dessert First, Cuz DUH!


Brownie/Cherry Cupcakes!

This is Brownie mix on the bottom, Cherry Cake mix on top of that (with a few drops of red food coloring in it) and cream cheese frosting on top. Juju hearts optional, but they are my absolute fave and can only find at Valentine’s!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Step one, google red velvet recipe.
(It really does call for a TABLESPOON of red dye.)
Step two, Google homemade cream cheese frosting.
Step three, talk teenager into making them.


Pink Lemonade Bundt Cake

Recipe adapted from:


  • Lemon Cake Mix
  • Lemon Instant Pudding Mix (small)
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pink lemonade concentrate (thawed)
  • 4 drops pink or red food color

Mix all together and pour into greased/floured bundt pan.
Cook 325-350 degrees 40-50 min. Toothpick test.

DO NOT REMOVE FROM pan. (I missed this part)…

Prick all over with a fork.

Pour glaze over cake still in pan, let sit til cool, or till you can’t stand it any longer.
(We forked ours after removed from pan and still poured the glaze over it. Oh well.)


  • 1 Cup Pink Lemonade Concentrate (I warmed it up in microwave first)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, took a while to mix this in but it did finally

Time For Dinner

After all the sweets, who has time to cook?
Tuesdays = crazy after school run-around for us, so we’ll be having Papa Murphy’s Heart Attack pizza.

I’m thinking all these yummies could be for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day… Next Wednesday?? Let’s meet and make all of ’em again real soon.

And if you need one more: Try these Easy Oreo Chocolate Truffles!
