Disney inspired Valentine’s Day Treats

Disney inspired Valentine’s Day Treats

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and for us that means treats! We come from a large Italian family, so everything is a party for us. And for us, parties mean food! Valentine’s Day is about love, and for us we show love through food. See where I’m going with this??

Since we can’t be at Disney for Valentine’s Day to try all of their treats, we decided to create a bit of magic at home, with some fun Disney inspired treats perfect for Valentine’s Day. Our Valentine’s Day lineup includes plenty of chocolate, pink and of course our main mouse, Mickey!

Mickey Chocolate and Strawberry candy filled cupcake

If you’ve followed us for any amount of time, you will know that we love good cupcakes. They’re portable, cute and the flavors combinations are endless. So we created this M&M filled chocolate cupcake with strawberry buttercream and piped chocolate, complete with Mickey ears. 

For this recipe, you will need a batch of chocolate cupcakes, strawberry buttercream frosting, M&M’s, dark melting chocolate wafers and Oreos. We prefer Oreo thins because they are a little easier for the frosting to hold onto, but any kind will work!

Any chocolate cupcake recipe will do, so choose your favorite! We love this strawberry buttercream but if making your own frosting intimidates you, feel free to substitute with any frosting you like. 

If you’ve never filled a cupcake before, never fear. It’s actually much simpler than it looks! After your cupcakes have cooled, just cut out a small circle in the middle of the cupcake and fill it with whatever you’re filling it with. In this case, M&M’s! After you’ve filled the center 3/4 of the way, cut off the bottom of the removed piece of cupcake and close up the hole. And that’s it! Disney Valentine's Treats at home, disney valentines treats, mickey valentines treats, mickey treats, valentines day, disney sweets, disney at homeDisney Valentine's Treats at home, disney valentines treats, mickey valentines treats, mickey treats, valentines day, disney sweets, disney at home

Mickey Valentine’s Day Milkshake

We recently were able to visit Beaches and Cream and had one of their new shakes. Not only was it absolutely adorable, but so delicious and totally inspired us to re-create them at home. Since we are firm believers that chocolate and strawberry is the perfect Valentine’s flavor combo, we decided to try making them with a Valentine’s Day twist! These were so fun to make and so delicious, we will likely be making more variations on them again soon.

Mickey Heart Shaped Shortbread

We love tea time. Any excuse to have tea is good enough for us. So what is better to have with a Valentine’s Day tea than a Jammie Dodger? We decided to create this Jammie Dodger-type cookie with a simple shortbread, strawberry jam and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Simple and delicious. Raspberry jam would work well also, but feel free to make whatever flavor combinations your heart desires!

For this recipe you’ll need shortbread(we use this recipe), strawberry jam and powdered sugar. We used a heart shaped cookie cutter and a miniature Mickey head cookie cutter(we used the smallest one in this set) to get this design but you can mix it up anyway you like.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, we are really loving chocolate and strawberry for Valentine’s Day. And if you’re not a Nutella fan….well then I’m not sure I know you.(Just kidding, well maybe…)

 

These poptarts are filled with Nutella and Strawberry Jam, and topped with icing for a perfect poptart look.
