Valentine treats for my tweet-E!
I received some donut and donut hole pans from one of my beautiful sister-in-laws for Christmas, and
have been wanting to try them out! I found these recipes online and oooooooh, what a treat they are!
I found this super-easy Cake Mix Donuts recipe HERE, and the Best Chocolate Frosting recipe HERE.
(My husband's a big fan of peanut butter-cups, so instead of 1 Cup butter, I used 1/2 cup butter and
1/2 cup peanut butter. It's our new favorite frosting-- Wish I'd tried this sooner!)
I recently made these cream-filled cupcakes for a holiday get-together-- They're one of my old-time favorites. For cupcake recipe click here. Because the chocolate cupcakes have a gooey filling, they really don't NEED frosting, but because I wanted these to 'look good', I added this delicious (NEW to me) marshmallow buttercream frosting. It's my new favorite frosting!!!! For frosting recipe click here. What treats have you made lately?
These Valentine's cupcakes were inspired by this recipe:
Cherry Almond Cake at TastesofLizzyT.com
Their Cherry Almond Cake is one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL cakes I have ever seen, and these cupcakes are perhaps my new all-time favorites!!! Thanks to Julie and Madie at www.tastesoflizzyt.com for sharing all your beautiful recipes!
Have you ever had a "Little Debbie: Be My Valentine Cake"? They're goooood!
We also have a dear cousin named, Debbie -- Hey, Deb!! Happy Valentine's Day! xo xo
Cinnamon Snack Cakes
Thanks to Kristen at CookiesCakesPiesOhMy for this delicious recipe!
Instead of using a 13 x 9 pan, I prepared these as cupcakes. Despite slightly over-baking them, they turned out moist and delicious and are especially tasty chilled! I used a cream cheese drizzle on mine.
