Valentine's Day is coming up fast! I love to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I'm on a really tight budget this year. That's why I’m shopping for Valentine's Day at Family Dollar and buying Valentine's Day cards, gifts and ingredients for Heart OREOs plus Chocolate Heart Bundt Cakes.

Your kids will want to help you make this Valentine's Day treat, It’s an "assembly only" recipe only requires three ingredients! Here are the instructions to make these Heart OREOs:


Ingredients Needed:

  • OREO cookies (chocolate and cinnamon bun)
  • M&M candies (red only)
  • Frosting (white & chocolate)

Step 1 - Stick your red M&M's on in the shape of a heart onto the top of the OREO cookie (white frosting for cinnamon bun OREOs, chocolate frosting for chocolate OREOs)

Yes - these cookies are really that easy to make! Now, if you're feeling more adventurous you can make my Chocolate Heart Bundt Cakes in the oven:


Ingredients & Equipment Needed:

  • Heart-shaped Mini Bundt or Cakelet Pan
  • Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • Water (1 cup)
  • Vegetable Oil (1/3 cup)
  • Eggs (3 large)
  • Hershey's Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • Nestle Tollhouse Semi-Sweet Morsels (1/3 cup)
  • Candy-coated Heart-Shaped Pretzels

Step 1 - Prep bundt or cakelet pan by spraying with no-stick cooking spray with flour and preheat oven to 350 degrees

Step 2 - Mix cake mix, water, vegetable oil and eggs according to package instructions

Step 3 - Add in Hershey's Instant Chocolate Pudding to make the cake more moist and add in 2/3 cup of Nestle Tollhouse Semi-Sweet Morsels to make the cake more chocolatey

Step 4 - Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees or until you can insert toothpick into middle of cakes and it comes out clean

Step 5 - Simply decorate by placing candy-coated Heart-shaped pretzel on top while the cake is still warm so that the pretzel will slightly melt making it stick to the cake

I was happy to find a wide selection of Valentine's Day cards at Family Dollar at a $1 WOW price. Now I'm ready to send Valentine's to my family in Oregon!

Want to decorate your table by making an easy centerpiece? I love the way chocolate roses look, so I decided to make a centerpiece out of them. I used a simple glass vase that I picked up previously at Family Dollar and added some decorative green glass pebbles to it to secure my chocolate rose arrangement. The fun part about this centerpiece is that you can eat it too!

Chocolate Roses Centerpiece

Supplies Needed:

  • 10 - 12 Chocolate Roses
  • Clear Cylindrical Glass Vase
  • Green Glass Pebbles

Step 1 - Add green glass pebbles to your clear cylindrical glass vase

Step 2 - Stick the stems of the chocolate roses into the base then place on a red placemat in the center of your table.

While I was shopping at Family Dollar, I looked for Valentines that my boys could take to their class Valentine's Day Parties. I was thrilled to find these two popular candy Valentine's: Fun Dip and Skittles.
