Valentine’s Day Cupcake Fondue

Happy Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so excited you are here! Looking for a cupcake recipe? Be sure to check out the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 200 cupcake recipes and decorating ideas!

Do you remember the Cupcake Fondue from several months ago? Well with all the adorable sprinkles, I couldn’t help myself…I just had to make a Valentine’s Day Cupcake Fondue!

Fondue = dipping small pieces of food into melted cheese, chocolate…or frosting! Cupcake Fondue = fun, quirky, delicious! Valentine’s Day Cupcake Fondue = just…plain…fun!

Valentine’s Day Cupcake Fondue Menu

  • Heart shaped cupcakes
  • Straws with hearts used as skewers
  • Frosting – Bubble Gum and White Chocolate Raspberry – Duncan Hines Frosting Creations
  • Frosting – Strawberry Whipped – Betty Crocker
  • Candy coated Sunflower Seeds – I found the Valentine mix at Hobby Lobby
  • Sprinkles – Micro Hearts, Jumbo Hearts, Nonpareils, Chocolate Jimmies, Confetti Hearts

Let’s start with the cupcakes…

For the Heart Cupcakes, I started with a white box mix and added the ingredients to make it taste homemade {watch my video to see how}, then I baked them in a silicone ice cube tray that I found at Michael’s. Here are a few tips…

  1. Place the mold on a cookie sheet and spray it lightly with cooking spray
  2. Bake at 325 degrees so the mold doesn’t melt
  3. The mold did melt a tiny bit, so I would suggest watching it closely.
  4. Don’t over fill. I used about 1/2  – 1 teaspoon in each heart
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes or until firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
  6. Let sit for 1-2 minutes on a cooling rack and then flip the mold to remove the hearts
  7. You can also easily bake mini cupcakes, they work just as well

Most any frosting will work as long as it’s soft. I used Duncan Hines Frosting Creations, with Bubble Gum and White Chocolate Raspberry flavoring. I also wanted to try another brand this time to see if it worked, so I used Betty Crocker Whipped Strawberry, while it was a little thicker, it still worked fine.

And then the sprinkles…any will work just fine, have fun and use your favorites!

I also used Candy Coated Sunflower Seeds, the Valentine’s Mix, available at most retailers and craft stores. I found these at Hobby Lobby. I also bought mini M&M’s in a Valentine tube, but they were not Valentine colors, so I opted not to use them.

The heart straws are fun, but if you can’t find them, you could also use skewers, plastic forks or straws like I did with the original Cupcake Fondue!

Let the fun begin…

What a fun treat for a Classroom Valentine’s Day Party!

    Where did you find the heart straws?

    • Liz says:

      Hi Sherri, The heart straws are from last year, but I believe I found them at Walmart or Target. You might also check Hobby Lobby, Michael’s or Party City. I pretty much buy everything at those places.
