valentines day ladybug cupcakes

You know those cute bags of  Valentines Day M&M’s that are popping up all over the stores lately? Here are some fun & creative ways to enjoy them (other than straight from the bag!)…

Pictured above: Adorable LadyBug Cupcakes – which also utilize malted milk balls & black licorice “antennas”!

Pictured below: Raspberry Almond Chocolate Crepes – This delicious-looking treat actually features Raspberry Almond M&M’S Premium Chocolate Candies, which look very elegant, but you could easily swap those out for the traditional Almond M&M’S (Valentines version) too.

Sorry, but I’ve given up M&M’s, for as long as they slam flowers in their advertising –

You don’t see florists calling out chocolate for being “a moment on the lips and forever on the hips” in order to promote flowers!

sprout: who cares if m&m’s suggests giving chocolate rather than flowers… unless your significant other loves getting roses be more creative than that, give something handmade, maybe something like these cute cupcakes!!!

I’m currently living in Lebanon where they have crepes everywhere! None of them look as good as this one though!

I’ll be giving roses AND m&m’s – maybe rose petals on m&m cupcakes to belabor the point? I’m going to Las Vegas in a few days, so I’ll check out their big store.
