Looking for some sweet treats for your Valentine! Check out these recipes:

Valentine Cake Mix Donuts!


Donuts are a yummy treat, but when you buy them at the store they are covered with thick frostings, sugar and usually deep fried.   To help  cut the sugar content and the deep fried aspect, I opted to make baked cake donuts that use Aquaball flavored waters to help sweeten the donut and give it a light yummy flavor!

Prep time Cook time Total Time
10 mins 10-15 mins 20-25 mins

Yield: 2 dozen large donuts or 4 dozen mini donuts

PEEPS Valentine Hot Cocoa

Why not show your kiddos how much you love them with a PEEPS inspired  cup of Valentine Hot Cocoa.   It is so cold outside, it is perfect to curl up with your littles and watch a movie and enjoy a nice cup of cocoa!

Here is what you will need to make this fun treat:
  • Hot Cocoa packets
  • Water to boil
  • Whipped topping
  • Milk
  • Sprinkles
  • PEEPS Marshmallow Hearts 
Pour cocoa packet into mug and fill 2/3 full with boiled water.  Mix well and then add milk.  This gives it a richer flavor and helps cool the temp as well. Squirt as much whipped topping on it as you want, add sprinkles and then a  PEEPS Marshmallow Heart.
