Valentines Day Lovin From the Oven!
If you are looking for some great recipes for Valentines Day, you have come to the right place. Here you will find chocolate ombre cake, love bites, stamped oreo cookies and chocolate cookie stacks.
Valentine’s Day Chocolate Cookie Stacks
Valentine’s Day is a great time for lovers to show their affection and if you are lucky enough to have a sweetie on your hands, what better way than to eat a slew of heart-shaped cookies? This article will walk you through the requisites to make your own edible valentine. You can get fancy with these stacked delights by using them as a dessert topper or as the centerpiece of your Valentine’s day spread. Alternatively, you can keep them tucked away in the back of your fridge and treat yourself to them at your leisure.
First of all, you need to preheate the oven to 350F. After you have baked the sugar cookie for 9 minutes, you need to turn the temperature down a notch and allow them to cool. A great tip is to place the cookies on a cooling rack instead of a cookie sheet.
Next, it is time to put your frosting to work. Use a decorating bag with a large open star tip to pipe out the frosting. Be sure to let it cool completely before you place the frosted cookies on their respective platters.
Finally, it is time to assemble the stacks. Place the largest heart shaped cookie in the center of each stack. Top the frosted cookie with a hefty dollop of whipped cream. To finish off the trifecta, you’ll want to garnish with some pretty sprinkles. Hopefully, this recipe will be a hit at your next shindig!
The best part about making these fun treats is that they are easy to assemble and you can even make them ahead of time. In fact, you can make the stacked lasagna two or three hours in advance and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it!
Stamped “Oreo” cookies
Oreo has released new treats for Valentine’s Day. The company is offering a limited-edition cookie with a special message stamped on the cookie.
These Valentine’s Day Chocolate Oreos are made from crunchy Oreo cookies coated in white chocolate with a cinnamon flavor. They’re also decorated with sprinkles, making them a fun dessert for the holiday.
They’re also great for gift giving. You can make them ahead of time and store them in a tightly-sealed container until you’re ready to serve them.
There are several different ways to dip your Oreos in chocolate. Kids can help with this. For more of a traditional look, you can dip them in melted chocolate while they’re still wet. But, if you’re looking for a more elaborate design, you can decorate the cookies with Valentine’s Day-themed candy melts or candy sprinkles.
If you want to dunk your Oreos in white chocolate, you can try mixing some white almond bark into your melted chocolate. Just don’t use water-based food coloring. Instead, use a non-water-based food coloring to prevent your chocolate from seizing.
When you’re ready to enjoy your chocolate covered Oreos, make sure you chill them in the fridge. This will ensure that your coating is firm and doesn’t get messy when they sit out at room temperature.
If you want to give your Oreos as gifts, you can store them in a small, airtight container on the kitchen counter. Alternatively, you can package them in cellophane bags and tie a pink and red ribbon around them.
You can also store your cookies in the refrigerator for a couple weeks. However, be sure to keep them out of the freezer. Thawing them will ruin the chocolate coating.
Valentine’s Day Love Note Cookies
Valentine’s Day love note cookies are a delicious and fun way to celebrate the day. With no complicated ingredients, these homemade cookies are a fail-proof option for your holiday baking.
The best part is that they are easy to make. These sweet treats are hand decorated. You can customize them to the occasion with any colors and sprinkles you like.
To get started, you’ll need a heart-shaped cookie cutter. If you don’t have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, you can use a smaller cookie cutter or a rectangle shape to create a heart-shaped cut-out.
After the cookie has baked, you’ll want to let it cool. This will help the icing to set. It will be easier to stack and wrap the cookies once they’re cooled.
After a few minutes, you’ll be ready to decorate your love note cookies. A silicone spatula makes it easy to lift the soft cookies off the tray. For added fun, add a few dried heart sprinkles to the frosting.
For the best results, keep your icing in the refrigerator. Once the cookies are cooled, you can wrap them up for gift giving.
You can use gel food color to write on your cookies. Gel colors are more concentrated than liquid food coloring. They set quickly and can be used on any size or shape of cookie.
For a more professional look, you can use a piping tip. If you’re not sure what piping tip to use, here’s a great guide to piping tips.
You can also use a thick royal icing to outline your hearts on the love note cookies. However, keep in mind that royal icing can smudge when you handle it, and you won’t be able to write on it like you would with fondant.
Valentines Day is a great excuse to send your loved ones something special. Luckily, there’s a whole range of fun and tasty treats on offer. If you’re in the market for a gift, consider a set of Love Bites, courtesy of the folks over at Ree Drummond. They make the perfect little sweet treat, and they’re not too difficult to make either.
The best part is that they don’t even require cooking. All you need are a couple of ingredients, and a bit of time to set them up. There are a few variations on the theme, but the ones I tried are the nutella puff pastry love bites and the marmite and sunflower seed love bites. Each tastes like a dream, and they’re very forgiving if you make a few mistakes. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better Valentines Day present than these luscious little creations.
Aside from being fun to make, these love bites are healthy. This particular recipe uses a lobster-based soft baked biscuit that contains glucosamine, a nutrient that supports a healthy hip and joint. It’s also a good source of Vitamin E, a key component of skin and coat health. Another plus is that you can eat these little wonders in the form of a meal, as opposed to a snack. Plus, they can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, which means you won’t be tempted to eat them all before dinner.
The best part is that you can get a decent deal on the kits for this delicious concoction, and you can bet that your recipient will appreciate the effort. In fact, there’s no reason why you can’t make a batch yourself, just make sure to set aside a few days to savor these little love bombs.
Chocolate Ombre Cake
Whether it’s for Valentine’s Day or just a sweet treat, this chocolate ombre cake is sure to please. If you’re looking for a delicious dessert that’s easy to make, this is the perfect recipe. The icing can be whipped up with just a few ingredients, and the ombre effect can be achieved with just three bowls.
To make this ombre cake, start by making a chocolate flavored cake. This is a very moist and fluffy cake that will go perfectly with your pink frosting.
Next, prepare the filling. You can either use vanilla whipped cream or light chocolate mousse. But before you start piping, you should apply a thin layer of frosting around the top of the cake. This will help the filling stay in place.
You can also tint the frosting. Try mixing a little bit of white frosting into the pink. Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven. Set the cake on a wire rack and cool it down for 15 minutes.
Next, add the icing to a piping bag with a large open round tip. Cut off the tip of the bag if necessary. Use an offset spatula to spread the frosting. It’s best to start the frosting at the edge of the cake and work in.
After you’ve finished decorating your chocolate ombre cake, serve it. If you want to add more decoration, sprinkle hearts or flowers on the top. Or if you’re not feeling adventurous, you can make a simple rose with buttercream frosting.
Another idea is to use Rice Krispies Treats to create a delicious Valentine’s Day dessert. Just make sure you follow the recipe on the package. Also, don’t forget to make it in a 9x5x3 loaf pan!
