We are getting ready to make Emily's Valentine box. She came up with the idea (although I am SURE I gave her that suggestion last year but last year's box had to be a cake?) and I've been collecting items on clearance the past few weeks getting ready for the big craft day. I also found some super cute and original Valentine cards on etsy...I'll be downloading and printing those out soon too! (Oh the projects...I CAN'T WAIT!)
I feel like all I've done this post is tempt you with things I have no intention of sharing right now so let me show you something we did about a week ago...that was YUMMY and actually turned out as cute as the picture in the magazine...
I've been wanting to try making these forever. I'd never heard of them until a few years ago. I found a great recipe for pumpkin Whoopie Pies for the fall but never found the time to make them...hmmmm...wonder why??? Anyway, the above whoopie pies were featured in this month's issue of Family Fun magazine. Family Fun is one of my favorites and my daughter even loves checking out the recipes and crafts each month. This time the combination of chocolate and pink frosting got the best of me and I just HAD to try them! So...you will find the recipe here, and they are so easy to make! I did use my Pampered Chef medium scoop for the cookie part. The frosting was easy to make, easy to spread and delish! mmmmmmmm! So...think about making some for a special Valentine. I know as a (substitute) teacher they'd make the PERFECT teacher's Valentine!!
I can't wait to show you my latest couponing OLYMPIC SUCCESS...seriously...this was one of my best shopping trips...come back tomorrow!
