Valentine Treats

Have you ever been to Bakerella's website? Be forewarned, it's not for anyone on a diet! This weekend, I had fun making cheesecake balls (using a Sam's Club cheesecake), cake balls (using Valerie's red velvet cake from this blog), and peanut butter balls (using the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup recipe we've always used). I used the chocolate a'peels from Gygi's for dipping. I like the a'peels because you don't have to worry about tempering the chocolate. I dipped the cheesecake and peanut butter balls in milk chocolate; the red velvet got dipped in white vanilla chocolate and then sprinkled with red and pink miniature heart sprinkles. Sorry, I don't have any pictures. We ate a lot and then shared a lot, and now they're all gone! They're pretty rich, and one or two is plenty for a serving!


  1. These look incredible! What a fun way to serve bite-size pieces of cheesecake and cake! Thanks for introducing me to this site. I found another site recently that is fun to check out--www.17andbaking.com. This is a blog done by a 17-year old. Check out her awesome chrysanthemum cupcakes!

  2. I just tried the cupcake pops from Bakerella's blog. They were great! I gave some to the crew we had working in our backyard, Bart brought some to work for a co-worker's birthday, and Alyssa gave some to her piano camp instructors as a thank you. Everyone really enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing the idea!
