Valentine's Day Sweets

Madison has been all about Valentine's Day this year so of course we had to whip up some sweets!

I am a sucker for a cute packaging and picked up this box to make chocolate truffles at Target.

The mixing and melting was mostly mommy duty.

Madison did have fun rolling the truffles in pink powdered sugar and sprinkles though!


Next up was a quick batch of strawberry cake mix cookies. Cake mix cookies are soooo easy! You can easily mix and match baking chips and cakes mixes for super yummy cookies!

This time we drizzled the baked cookies with white chocolate and sprinkles!

Of course we made up a box of goodies to send to work with hubby in the morning!

Cake Mix Cookies (recipe found on cake mix)
1 boxed cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Remove 3 tablespoons from the cake mix and set aside.

Add eggs and oil to cake mix and combine until smooth. If mix is too wet, add more dry mix. Drop in one inch balls on ungreased cookie sheet or baking pan.

Bake for approximately 7 minutes or until slightly browned, being careful not to overcook.

**Favorite Combinations**

Chocolate cake mix with peanut butter, butterscotch, white chocolate or cherry chips

White cake mix with cherry or chocolate chips

Strawberry cake mix with white chocolate chips

I love that garland that you used to decorate. I noticed that a lot of blogs say to use wool felt for their felt projects. Is that what you used? I would love to try this one! Thanks for all the fun ideas.
