This year we are lucky that Valentines falls on a Friday. Z will be going to daycare as usual and having a party with his friends. Meanwhile L and I will have a date-day at home with some cheese fondue and a movie or two .
For Valentines the past two years I have tried a different treat. Instead of making berry or cream pies I’ve made mini-cheesecakes.
I start with a pretzel bottom in silicone tins then a no-bake cheesecake filling of whip cream, cream cheese, and sweetened condensed milk. To top it all off this year I made a homemade raspberry sauce.
I keep these in the freezer until a little before we are ready to serve them so they stay nice and firm.
I shared these treat this year with some friends from MOPS, our preschool friends, and our family.
Z was so excited to help me make them and told everyone there was a surprise in the fridge for them.
Wishing you a happy valentines day celebrating those that you love.
