It’s true I am in LOVE with Valentine’s Week! I am a hopeless romantic and all things sweet and lovey dovey make me happy (and yes pink is my favorite color)! I really enjoy baking heart shaped sweets every year and attending Valentine’s parties especially now that I can share in the fun with my daughter Ava!
This year we are attending a Valentine’s themed luncheon I am planning with our FRG and a Ava’s music class is having a Valentine’s exchange! I decided to make this Valentine’s Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip for the luncheon dessert table. Truly I wanted something easy and portable but also sweet and delicious that everyone would love and I found just that with this recipe. Better yet, it’s a healthier version using fat free Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese and whipped topping.
I had leftover shortbread dough from my Valentine Cranberry Sandwich Cookies that I had frozen a few weeks ago and using my cookie stamp and heart shaped cookie cutters and red sugar sprinkles I made the perfect dipping cookies to go with this dip. I also like to serve with fruit and vanilla wafers.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

I used frozen leftover dough I had made for my Valentine’s Cranberry Sandwich Cookies
so I rolled it out and used my cookie stamp and heart shaped cookie cutters to make small cookie dippers!
