Sweet Heart Cupcakes for Valentine's Day

Sweet Heart Cupcakes for Valentine's Day

Indulge in the delightful world of chocolate heart cupcake toppers with our easy-to-follow recipe. Elevate your cupcake game by making your own pro-looking heart cupcake toppers using just a few simple ingredients. Here's a step-by-step guide to creating these irresistible treats:

Ingredients and Tools:

*White candy melts can also be tinted. Please check out our blog for an easy step by step guide.


Step 1:

Melt red, light pink and dark pink candy melts in individual bowls in the microwave. Cover a baking tray with baking paper, then spread one colour in a rough oval shape as the base. Drizzle the other two colours across the top using a spoon.

Step 2:

Take a knife or mini spatula and swirl it through the candy melts before they set. Avoid over-swirling to maintain distinct colors. Let the candy bark partially set at room temperature.

Step 3:

Using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter, press firmly through the swirled candy melt bark. Cut around the edges first and then move towards the center as the candy sets. The candy should be firm enough to touch but still pliable.

Step 4:

Once all hearts are cut out, let the bark set completely, either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Pop the hearts out carefully.

Step 5:

Pipe generous swirls of buttercream on your baked and cooled cupcakes. For tips on different techniques and piping tips, check out our blog on 'A Dozen Ways to Ice Cupcakes.'

Step 6:

For an extra festive flair press valentine's sprinkles along the base of the icing. Finally, top it off with a few chocolate hearts, and your delectable cupcakes are ready to steal the spotlight!

Whether you're celebrating with your Galentine or Valentine, these cupcakes are a sweet gesture of love and appreciation.
