Having a Valentine party???

I'm not.  Unless you count this 14 Days of Love thing I've been doing for my husband.  (Note: THAT'S where I got the peach rings I devoured last week.  Instead of attaching a note to them that said, "You're just peachy!", I ate them while he was at work.)

However, if I WERE having a Valentine party, I would order some fun party invitations from Tiny Prints.

Tiny Prints contacted me with Valentine Party invitation ideas, so I decided I'd match up some of my desserts to their invitations.
I enjoy a creative challenge.

So, let's have a Valentine party!  I'll pretend that my many (many) real-life friends are coming over...

Sparkling Splendor

I think we should start with an appetizer of Red Velvet Muddy Buddies (recipe at the bottom of post).



Bold Blackboard


For a main course?  Cake, obviously.  Ice cream cake.





A Hoot
Then, dessert.  For the caramel/chocolate combo lovers out there...



And for those peanut butter/chocolate combo lovers...



Gotta have something for everyone, right??

Triple Sundae

So that's what I would serve you if you came over for a Valentine Party.  
I'd love to have an excuse to use cute, fun party invitations like these.  I'd actually have a hard time deciding between the ones in this post.  Which do you like? 


Red Velvet Muddy Buddies
inspired and adapted from Cupcake Muddy Buddies

1 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup red velvet cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Rice Chex cereal, about 5 cups

In a large bowl, microwave the chocolate chips at 30 second intervals unless smooth.  Stir in the cereal with a big spoon or spatula.  Sprinkle in the powdered cake mix and sugar. (I use a glass pyrex bowl, and then put the lid on it to shake.)

Store in an airtight container for up to a week.  Don't worry, they won't last that long.  (Oh, right.  You're serving them at a "party".  You totally won't eat them all yourself.)
