Affordable Valentine’s Day Treats


In case you forgot, Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away! This doesn’t mean you have to spend an arm and a leg on a dozen red roses or imported chocolates from Belgium – let’s be honest, a lot of our wallets are still recovering from Christmas and buying books at the start of the semester. So, what can you give that’s affordable and sweet? I’m thinking sugar.


I came across a great list of Valentine’s Day treats, thanks to Love From The Oven, to make for you and your valentine – and anyone else you want to share the love with.

1: Valentine’s Day Pretzels – dip pretzels into chocolate and then top them off with pink and red heart sprinkles to make them more festive.

2: Red Velvet Sweetheart Cupcakes – what’s better than red velvet on Valentine’s Day? Top it off with cream cheese icing for the perfect combination.

3: Valentine Heart Chocolate Cookies – better than chocolate in a heart shaped box: heart shaped chocolate cookies. Mix in some Valentine’s Day M&Ms for some color.

4: Valentine Oreo Pop – oreos dipped in chocolate and then coated in sprinkles, all conveniently on a stick for your eating pleasure.

5: Valentine Crispy Treats – a classic sweet treat revamped with some chocolate and sprinkles to top it off.

These are just a few of my favorites from the list – for a full list of treats from Love From The Oven, click here.
