I love shopping at Cost Plus World Market! If you haven't been, you are missing out! One thing I love to do is shop there for Holidays! Specifically Valentine's Day! They offer so many products and the possibilities are endless when it comes to Valentine's Gift Ideas! They have so many gift ideas for her and gift ideas for him. I wanted to do something out of the box and make gourmet Valentine's Day cupcakes with products from Cost Plus World Market!
These cupcakes turned out perfectly! Before I share how to make them, I wanted to share with you the products that I purchased to make this possible as well. The best thing is all of these products can pretty much be used more than once too!
We have Guittard Unsweetened Cacao Powder, Cupcake Injector and Decorating Set, Two jars of Soiree Maraschino Cherries, Red Buffet Table Cloth, Red Heart Melamine Measuring Cups, Red Heart Melamine Measuring Spoons, Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips, Torani Cherry Syrup, Love Beverage Napkins, ChocoMaker Dark Chocolate Curls (2), and lastly, Laica Milk Chocolate Hearts in Mesh Bag.
How I made them:
First I melted a cup of chocolate in a jar on 30 second intervals. I poured it in a ziplock bag and cut the tip off. I piped little hearts on wax paper and put them in the fridge to set. this made for the cute toppers. I wanted white chocolate but I could not find any at my store.
