So here’s the big question of the day….

Are you ready?

Valentine’s Day – Love or Hate?

I used to hate it when I was growing up. Middle school and high school was so traumatic! Everyone was getting balloons and flowers from their boyfriends and I never had one. I hated that day. My friends that didn’t have boyfriends, well at least their parents sent them something. Mine never did, well I think one year I strongly hinted that they should and my mom finally did. The pains of growing up!

With that in mind I ordered candy and balloons for my niece and nephew last year! Of course, I said they were from Miss K. Thoughtful isn’t she?

I have a new found love for Valentine’s Day now that I’m married and all! The hubs delivers. As in delivers roses every year. The same thing every year. I can expect 6 hot pink roses and 6 red roses and I love them dearly.


Since I hated Valentine’s Day growing up I’ve made it my mission to make sure every young girl does not have a similar experience if I can help it. This year that included throwing a Valentine’s Day party for Miss K, and my two amazing niece Kendel and Hallie. They are all several years apart and pretty much worship each other, well Hallie just has little girls worshiping her. I don’t think she minds!

Dough Boy

The afternoon start with this cute little guy. Here’s the story behind this one. My niece, Kendel, has an Elf on the Shelf named Ernie. While I was visiting Pillsbury in December I happened to get this cute little Dough Boy. Kendel thought it was super cool I was hanging out with the Dough Boy for the day and baking cookies! Her mother and I came up with the plan that “Ernie” would bring the Dough Boy back to visit her one morning with a fresh plate of cookies. Kendel thought this was so cool! The Dough Boy has now made an appearance at our family Christmas where he was waiting in my Christmas tree for Kendel and now he made his presence known at our Valentine’s Day Baking event. You should have saw Kendel’s face! It was priceless and there was about 50 million questions about how he got to my house, which continue to this day!

We had a packed day of baking and plenty of giggles to go around. What are you to expect with four girls in the kitchen? On our list of treats to make were these amazing Strawberry Sugar Cookie Cups, which were voted the favorite by the Dad’s! Soft Sugar Cookie Cups filled high with a Strawberry Marshmallow Creme and topped with Cool Whip and Sprinkles. What’s not to love?

Cinnamon Rolls

We also made these super cute Cinnamon Sweetheart Rolls which we had to dye the icing pink of course! Never to much pink in our lives. They were super easy to make and would make the perfect treat for a Valentine’s Day Breakfast for the kiddos! The girls dug right in and helped me make the hearts and frost the cinnamon rolls! These were by far Miss K’s favorite!

Sugar Cookies

Another treat we made were these festive Valentine’s Cookie Pops! They were so easy and impressively cute. I used a paper straw for the handle to add some color to them. We also microwaved a little frosting for 30 seconds and dyed it pink and drizzled it over the tops of the cookies to dress them up. Plus more sprinkles of course! At point I looked over and Kendel was eating sprinkles out of the jar with a spoon!

As you can see we had an amazing time at our Valentine’s Day Party full of Pillsbury treats! There were plenty of giggles, messes and memories to go around. Everyone went home with a full heart and tummy!

    • Julie Evink

      It’s just regular Kool-Aid pack so I would assume so? I used regular muffin tins but a friend used mini when she did it!

  • Dawn

    These look so yummy! Do you put a rounded scoop of dough into the pan or do you press it up on the sides?? Thanks!
