Valentine Treats

Standard

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I just thought I’d share a few of the treats I made this year!

My husband loves Oreos.  But you know what’s even better than Oreos?  HOMEMADE Oreos!

Here’s the recipe I used:

1 box devils food cake mix

1/3 cup oil

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

mix together, roll into cherry sized balls and bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes

Do not over cook! Cookies should look soft and moist.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1/4 cup butter

1 8 0z package cream cheese- softened

4 cups powdered sugar

Cream together butter and cream cheese- add powdered sugar as mixing

frost cookies with frosting and top with another cookie.

These are delicious!  If you want to shake things up, use different flavors of cake mix and frosting!  To make mine a Valentine cookie, I used a heart cookie cutter on the cookies right after they came out of the oven.

I had lots of frosting left over, so for my second treat, I simply put the cream cheese frosting on nila wafers and topped it with a slice of strawberry.  Very easy, but it tastes like a little strawberry shortcake.
