I’m excited to share my Valentine’s Day project with you:
Have you seen the cute frozen whipped cream hearts on Pinterest? I’ve seen a few versions. I’d like to give credit, but I really don’t know where I first saw them. It’s one of those ideas that have made the rounds.
I decided to try flavoring the whipped topping. I made Raspberry and Caramel. In the photo, the Raspberry heart is in a cup of white chocolate hot cocoa. So good! Especially for a store bought mix.
These hearts are easy to make. They have a subtle flavor, enough to enhance the hot cocoa without overpowering. Here’s what you’ll need:
This is more method than recipe. I used one container of frozen whipped topping, thawed.
For the Caramel Hearts, I folded 2-3 Tbs. of caramel topping into the whipped cream.
For the Raspberry Hearts, I used 2-3 Tbs. of raspberry flavored syrup (like you find in coffee shops). I also used a few drops of pink food coloring to make it pretty.
Spread the flavored topping on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Pop the cookie sheet in the freezer for several hours or over night. Then use a small, heart shaped cutter to make the hearts.
That’s it! Float them in your hot cocoa and celebrate a sweet day!
I’ve also been using the flavored topping to dip my animal cookies. Yum!
Now you can link up your Valentine’s Day project. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got! Be sure to leave a link back to one of the hostesses blogs.
