Insanely cute, tasty and EASY. Exactly what you’re looking for in a Valentine, right?
Red Velvet Heart Cupcakes
Cupid’s Chocolate Strawberry Arrows
RED VELVET HEART CUPCAKES
Would you believe you can prep a healthy Red Velvet Cake and silky cream cheese frosting in under five minutes? Nutritious ingredients like eggs, almonds, fat free buttermilk and fresh fruit décor contribute up to 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per cupcake! Enlist the help of your blender and use those extra minutes reminding somebody why we celebrate V Day. The only thing quicker than prepping these cupcakes is how fast my friends reverted back to their single digit years when I set up a “cupcake decorating bar” beside the booze at my buddy’s party Saturday.
CUPID’S CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY ARROWS
Antioxidants abound! Fresh berries bursting with folate, potassium, fiber, Vitamin C and Manganese enveloped in delicious dark chocolate radiating heart-healthy flavonoids. Cut time and the fatty, sugary processed ingredients required by most chocolate dip and fondue recipes; enlist your microwave to melt perfect-as-they are Lindt Excellence 85% Cocoa Extra Dark Chocolate bars into sauce. Rarely the brand snob, I do recommend this bar as it’s impressively natural comprised of only 5 ingredients: Chocolate, Cocoa powder, Cocoa butter, Sugar, Vanilla. Use the link above for both the uber easy traditional chocolate strawberries and my Cupid’s Arrows should you have a few minutes to assemble these weapons of mass seduction.
Both the Red Velvet Heart Cupcakes and Cupid’s Chocolate Strawberry Arrows are perfect to make for or with children and adult guests at holiday parties.
