Valentine's Treats

We tried out a few yummy new recipes for Valentine's Day. I don't know if you need any new treat recipes, but I thought I'd share the links in case you do!

First are some irresistable Nutella sandwich cookies. They are made with oatmeal and some whole wheat flour... healthy, right?  I heart Nutella in many forms, and these did not disappoint. The recipe is from my amazingly talented cousin, Katie at Kate's Plate. She has a plethora of great recipes on her blog.

My sister in law Laura is always experimenting and making delicious desserts. I love that she shares the recipes (and the treats!).  She made and posted about these Chocolate Mousse Filled Cupcakes with Ganache... hers are much prettier than mine because she used pink non-pareils and cute Valentine's toppers, but ours were just as delicious! They are a chocolate lovers dream.

And finally, strawberries with cream... Yum. Laura provided this recipe and inspiration here. We had some cream left over and some other strawberries that made delicious crepes this morning.
