5 Ways To Upgrade Your Favourite Dessert for Valentines Day

5 Ways to Uprgrade Your Favourite Dessert for Valentines Day
 Hello Lovelies!
Who doesn't like Valentines themed desserts? It's a perfect excuse for delicious and adorable snacks, as well as sharing delicious treats with your loved ones! Here are some super simple ways to upgrade your all time favourites for Valentines Day.
1: Trade chocolate for vanilla
Believe me, I have nothing against chocolate on Valentines Day. However, a vanilla dessert can appear more dainty. You can make this super-simple switch by removing cocoa powder or whatever other chocolate flavouring that is used and adding some vanilla extract. A teaspoon will work well for most normal-sized recipes.
2: Add Raspberries
I love raspberries. They are delicious, quite good for your, and so cute! They give any dessert a cute upgrade and can also be used to replace chocolate chips. 1/4 cup will work well for most recipes.
3: Shape them like a heart
There are tons of options out there for heart-shaped desserts, such as heart shaped cookie cutters and doughnut pans. Don't be afraid to give them a try!
4. Add Pink
Pink food colouring, pink sprinkles, little pink candies, and pink frosting make any dessert perfect for Valentines day. Not to mention making them cuter!
5. Cute Plating
Nothing upgrades a dessert quite like cute plating. Some of my favourites are simple saucers from cute teacups, but anything pink or red are quite appropriate.

I hope that this helped you! Are you making any desserts for Valentines Day?

  3. Such cute ideas!! I don't think I'll be making any deserts for Valentine's though, probably just passing out cards and treats.

    My family has a tradition on Valentine's Day where my brothers and my dad make breakfast for my mom, sisters and I so maybe I can send some of these ideas their way. :)

    God bless!

  4. Raspberries, yum! And I definitely agree--I'm a total chocoholic, but vanilla is so dainty :)

  5. Nice ideas :-)

    We are going out for lunch. We think it will be busy at night. There is this great Indian that cater for vegans and gluten free - perfert for me! But I'm just a bit wimpy when it comes to spicy so I always ask for mild ;-)
