7The perfect drink for your Valentine dinner! This raspberry sherbet party punch is pretty, refreshing and easy to make! You will need, chilled Sierra Mist, 7-Up or Sprite, a bottle of chilled club soda, a fruit punch can, a pineapple juice can and scoops of raspberry sherbet. Now, pre-scoop the sherbet and freeze it. Mix slowly the rest of the ingredients. Add the sherbet to the mix just before serving so it remains frozen in the punch. Yum!! Thank you natashaskitchen for the delicious recipe!
8Raspberry lemon cookies, Chocolate chip and cream cookies. Cookies with Oreos, can’t get much better than this!
9Valentine’s Day chocolate covered pretzels. Easy to make and such a cute homemade Valentine Day gift idea.
10Valentine Oreo pops for those who prefer to take a shortcut to cake pops. Twist the Oreos open (you know… without licking the creamy filling) add a stick, close it and dip it in warm chocolate covering part of the stick. Now dip them on a bowl of red sprinkles. Let them cool off.
11Now that we are dipping cookies in chocolate, here’s another idea that reminds us of the “obleas” of our childhood.
12This is not a last-minute valentine day gift idea but it can definitely be made within a few hours. To create a heart shaped cake without a heart-shaped mold, bake one square and one round cake. Now cut the round cake in half and add it to two adjacent sides of the square cake. Decorate with chocolate and bonbons.
13Bathe marshmallows in chocolate, decorate them and turn them into delicious wands! Mmmmm!!
