Finding Awesome Valentine’s Day treat ideas isn’t always easy. My husband usually likes to shop for himself for anything he needs so I typically struggle to come up with a gift that is fun and unique, while at the same time being something I know will show how much I appreciate him.
This year, I believe I’ve found the perfect valentines day idea that is a little whimsical and shows that I care about putting effort into his gift. These Honey Bee Mine Valentine’s Cakes are super cute, easy to make, and anyone is sure to love them.
Easy Valentine’s Day Treat Ideas
If you are looking for simple, yet awesome Valentines Day ideas this is just the thing. Guys, you can surely make these for the special lady in your life, or anyone could make them for a class treat for your kids’ school!
Honey Bee Mine Valentine’s Day Cakes
The first step for your Honey Bee Mine cakes is to prepare the modeling chocolate. You can use a double boiler or simply microwave the chocolate using 30-second intervals and stirring between each interval.
Once the chocolate is melted and cooled to the right temperature (approx 91 degrees), pour in the corn syrup. The mixture will become thick quickly so be sure to stir and scrape the bottom of the bowl to incorporate all of the chocolate.
Pour the mixture onto a flat surface to begin kneading and shaping the dough. Use a dough scraper if your hands are too warm. Flatten into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
When you are ready to decorate your cakes, roll the dough to a 1/16″ thickness. Cut out strips that you will use to wrap around your bee and cut off excess as needed.
Use a dab of frosting and secure a chocolate chip on one end to be used as the tail (stinger).
Cut the wings from your white modeling chocolate, then place in the refrigerator to harden.
Cut strips about 1 1/2″ long from the brown and roll them with your hands to make thin logs. Curl up one end to make antennae, then place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes to allow them to harden.
Use a dab of frosting to attach the candy eyes and to draw a smile on the face. Use a toothpick to poke two holes in the twinkie between the eyes and the first stripe. Stick an antennae into each hole.
Use another few drops of frosting to attach the wings and you will have a completed Honey Bee Mine Valentine’s Day gift!
These cute little bees are a great Valentines Day idea and can be given individually, or send them as a happy couple. These would also be a fun project to do with kids and then send to school. I was thinking of taking some pre-made modeling chocolate into my kids’ classes and having the students make their own – wouldn’t that be fun!
