Even though I'm a non-believer.... Happy Valentine's

Well technically I abhor Valentine's Day, but I love all the sweets that come with it. I normally spoil my co-workers with some great treats and since some of them won't be here on Saturday, I decided to bring them in on Thursday.

What kind of goodies are here you may ask? Let's see.

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese icing:
I cheat and use the red velvet mix from a box, God Bless Duncan Hines! But the cream cheese icing is so easy enough to make, and it tastes SO much better when it's homemade!

All you need is:
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
1 16oz box of powdered sugar
2 tsp Vanilla extract

Add all ingredients and mix until smooth and creamy!

And the next treat for your enjoyment would be.....

Red Velvet Cake Balls, Bakerella style.

And last but certainly not least we have:

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

I hope you all enjoyed these Valentine goodies, and if you love or hate the holiday, please make them!!!
