In the spirit of the most romantic day of the year, here’s a super sweet recipe for your sweetie (we’re so clever). If you’re looking for a no-fuss yet sentimental Valentine’s Day idea, these adorable cupcakes will surely be a hit. Whip out your baked goodies and it’ll definitely make your loved one feel special.

The ingredients are as follows:
1 1/2 cup of crushed Cookie Dough Bites
1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
1 1/4 cups water
1/3 cup vegetable oil|
3 egg whites
8 drops red food coloring
2 containers vanilla frosting

Valentine’s Day Cupcakes Directions:

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
  2. Beat the cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and egg whites together until smooth. Fill cupcake liners 1/3 full with white batter.
  3. Stir 4 drops of red food coloring into the remaining bowl of batter to make the batter pink. Pour 1/3 of pink batter into a resealable plastic bag and set aside.
  4. Mix more food coloring into the remaining bowl of pink batter until it is an orange/red color and pour the batter into a resealable plastic bag. Cut a corner off the bag, stick the open tip into the center of each cup of white batter and squeeze in about two tablespoons of red batter.
  5. Cut the corner off the bag with the pink batter, stick the open tip into the center of the red batter and squeeze about 1 tablespoon pink batter into each cup.
  6. Bake the layered cupcakes in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.
  7. Frost half of the cupcakes with vanilla frosting. Mix in 3 drops of red food coloring in remaining frosting and frosting other half of cupcakes. Top with crushed Cookie Dough Bites.

Let your cutie know you appreciate them by baking them a batch of Valentine’s Day-themed cupcakes. It’s a sweet gift that you both can share. Enjoy and happy Valentine’s Day!
