How to Make Sweet Valentine’s Treats

Sweet Valentine's Treats

Hi friends! I am back with some sweet valentine’s treats for this upcoming Valentine’s Day season! I created these with edible cookie dough with sprinkles and crushed pretzels for my cake business Valentine’s Day offerings for this year. You can use anything from cake scraps with a small amount of buttercream, cookie dough, crushed Oreos & pretzels, to puddings for these fun treats without sticks as well. They also work for girly birthday themes, baby showers, bachelorette parties, and many more. Scroll down for a guide on where to get supplies and a short video on how to make sweet valentine’s treats!

Chocolate Suggestions

As I mentioned in my previous post, most of the time, you will want to use compound chocolate that is best for candy making, dipping, molding, and such because it doesn’t require tempering. Compound chocolate is also called confectionery chocolates, and coating chocolate that looks and tastes like chocolate. Pure chocolate requires tempering, so if you were to use high-quality chocolates for this tutorial, you would need to temper, or you’ll have chocolate that won’t harden. You can search tempering chocolate if you want to go that route. Below are the links for compound chocolates that I have used.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR Sweet Valentine’s Treats

  1. Make edible cookie dough as instructed as to the recipe calls. Fold in sprinkles and pretzels.
  2. Melt chocolate first at 30-second intervals then 15-second intervals until all melted.
  3. Apply melted chocolate to the mold.
  4. Spread the chocolate inside of the mold using one of the sticks or a small offset spatula. Make sure there are no gaps.
  5. Put the mold in the fridge to harden.
  6. Insert the sticks in the mold but slowly. You can also skip this step because they work as stand alone treats!

  8. Put in the fridge again.
  9. Put in edible cookie dough (or cake mixture of your choice)
  10. Push the sticks in if using sticks.
  11. Spread melted chocolate on the top of the mold. Do not cover O’s (the white in middle) with chocolate or scrap the excess chocolate off.
  12. Scrape off excess chocolate with the offset spatula.
  13. Put the mold in the fridge for 5 min or until they are hard.
  14. Gently pop them out with extra care. Start at the bottom and work your way up.
  15. Use a kitchen blowtorch to melt the chocolate for the sprinkles to be adhered.
