6 Twin Cities Valentine’s Day Treats & Eats
Is there such a thing as too much love? We think not. Any excuse to celebrate the ones we love in our family is alright by us. If you are looking for a few more ways to bring the love party back to your home this Valentine’s season, check out these great Twin Cities options for Valentine’s Day Treats and eats (and heart-shaped deliciousness.)
Pizza My Heart.
Pizza is the way to my heart. Local pizza places make it special for Valentine’s by making a heart-shaped pizza! Davanni’s claims to be the first Twin Cities pizzeria to start the tradition. If pizza wasn’t enough, they also offer $1 brownies for the sweet tooths in your house—order by February 14 on the phone or online.
Looking for a gluten-free option? Try Randy’s Pizza in Oakdale also offers tasty heart-shaped pies this season.
I Waffle You.
Local favorite Nordic Waffles now offers their delicious heart-shaped waffle sandwiches outside of the fair. Pick up your favorite flavor in the freezer section of many grocery stores for a breakfast-for-dinner love party.
Donut Stop Loving Me.
My kids could eat donuts at any meal. Imagine blowing their minds with a giant heart-shaped donut this Valentine’s Day! Angel Food has just the thing, with its signature frosting and sprinkles. I might need to get two just so we don’t have to share!
Ice Scream for You.
Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a cool ice cream sundae! Milkjam Creamery makes it fun and easy by providing a Take Home Valentine Ice Cream Kit. The Kit includes one pint of “I ‘heart’ You” (white chocolate w/ raspberry rose jam), one pint of “Tru Luv” (milk chocolate truffle w/chocolate almond crunch, caramel chocolate fudge), passion fruit caramel, triple berry sauce, strawberry cereal crunch, salted almond brittle and a special Milkjam scoop. Your kids will scream for this!
Batch Made in Heaven.
Support a great mission AND have fun creating your own cookies by purchasing a Valentine Cookie Kit from Cookie Cart. Cookie Cart is a great local organization with a mission to bake bright futures by providing a first-job experience and leadership training to teens in our Minneapolis and Saint Paul Bakeries! You can purchase pre-made Valentine’s or Black History Month cookies to celebrate February, or bring a cookie decorating kit home to design your own cookies. Each kit is $25 and includes 1 dozen sugar cookies, 4 piping bags of colored icing, and 1 container of sprinkles.
Just announced! 14% off all cookies through 2/14 with code: VDAY14
You’re the Cheese to my Cake.
Those conversation hearts you get in little boxes from your Valentine might be the cutest things ever but they taste disgusting (change my mind.) But the conversation hearts made by the amazing Muddy Paws Cheesecake have my heart. Voted Best in Minnesota, Muddy Paws Cheesecake is an artisan cheesecake bakery located in St. Louis Park, MN. Locally owned and operated for over 29 years by Tami Cabrera, no other cheesecakes in the world compare to Muddy Paws Cheesecake’s 222 flavors. You might be tempted to try them all, but perhaps start with their Valentine’s specials like the very cute mini cheesecakes with love notes to your sweetie. Get 6 baby cheesecakes for only $10! That’s a sweet deal.
There will be lots of Valentine’s items at the Minnetonka Winter Farmer’s Market tomorrow (Saturday)!
