Three Sweet February Treats

I have three
appropriate for
the month of Hearts!

1. Oreo Truffles

I made these rich truffles with a recipe from allrecipes. They are very simple to make and extra yummy. I bought little candy liners to bump up the cuteness. *wink*

2. Cherry Heart Cake

This cake is decorated with the celebrated word of the season: L.O.V.E.

The hearts and letters were melted chocolate chips that were piped on using cookie cutters for forms.

3. Chocolate Mousse with Contemporary Hearts

I made this light but rich mousse using too. It's described as "heaven on a spoon".
Martha Stewart Living February issue had this idea for the hearts and it was simple and fun to create! Melt semi-sweet chocolate and pipe it onto parchment paper into your desired shapes. Wait for your creations to completely dry before transferring them to desserts.
I made each of my hearts different inside with various designs.

Don't forget to enter my Tunkables giveaway! It's such a fun and unique treasure! The giveaway ends on Valentine's Day.

Yum! I love the oreo cookie truffles. I've been planning on making those for my daughter's teachers for V-Day. I'm gonna use the pink chocolate to dip them in though and then cover some with various pink and red sprinkles. Fun! Love those MS hearts though and might have to use those for something I have planned for dinner with hubs!

Oreo Heaven Balls! That's what those are! I know you made them for Valentine's Day, but I think they could be used as an "every holiday" staple!
