Tastefully Simple Valentine's Day Treats

Monday, February 9, 2015

It is hard to believe but Valentine's Day is just around the corner! If you know me, you know I am a huge fan of holidays, especially ones that involve gifts and treats.  
 With my collaboration working with Tastefully Simple, I browsed the products and chose two that I thought were very Valentine's Day appropriate: Raspberry Chocolate Cheese Ball Mix and Black Cherry Slush Drink Mix.  Here is what I did with them:
 I started out by preparing the Black Cherry Slush Drink Mix.  It was super easy, I just washed out the bucket, added in the mix
 And some water.  Gave it a good stir and popped it into the freezer over night.
 Then I got to work on the Raspberry Chocolate Cheese Ball.  It starts with softened cream cheese
 And the mix.
 I gave it a good stir
 And scooped it into my serving dish
 Topped with the chocolate crumb topping
 And treat number one was done! Easy as that.
 I served it with the Tastefully Simple Twisty Grahams and it tasted like Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake.  Yum!  Also, those little Twisty Grahams might just be my favorite Tastefully Simple product.  I thought I might have over-dosed on them during my pregnancy but nope, taste just as good not pregnant!
 Such a fun little treat for your sweetheart.
 For the cocktail, I removed the bucket from the freezer
 Scraped it with a fork
Then put the shavings in a glass 
And pour in some bubbly...yes champagne!  Is there anything more romantic than champagne?  I guess there are a few things like, foot rubs or letting your wife sleep in in the morning (Hint hint...).
 But a Black Cherry Champagne Slush and Raspberry Chocolate Cheeseball Dip come in at a close second :)
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day full of the ones that you love!  xoxo. 

Raspberry Chocolate Cheese Ball 

8 oz softened cream cheese 

Combine the cream cheese with packet one.  Once fully combined, spread into a serving dish or place in the refrigerator for two hours to harden.  If you go that route, you can shape into a ball and roll in packet two (chocolate crumbs).  If you place in a serving dish, sprinkle with the chocolate crumbs.  Serve with Twisty Grahams.
