This year for Valentine’s Day, we didn’t have any special plans. Since it was on a Wednesday we just weren’t feeling going out. So we spent Valentine’s Week doing some at home dates that were not only super simple but also super cheap!
If you are looking for some ideas for a fun way to spend time with your Valentine without breaking the bank (but still remaining festive) then keep on reading!
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
We started off the week making some chocolate dipped strawberries. This is a treat we both love! They are so expensive to buy though, so I thought why not make my own? We bought a package of 24 strawberries fur about $2, a bag of chocolate chips for less that two dollars and then we added some red candy melt swirls for something extra but not completely necessary. So you can really do this for about $5 and less than 30 minutes.
All you need to do in melt your chocolate slowly in a bowl in the microwave, dip your strawberries and lay on parchment paper! We let them harden in the fridge for a while and kept in a sealed container in the fridge. Eat them quickly because they don’t last forever! (A few days is all you can keep them). This is a fun way to get your guy in the kitchen too if he isn’t the best cook.
Super Easy Red Velvet M&M Brownies
I used this recipe for these amazing red velvet brownies, and it does not get much simpler than this! 4 ingredients: red velvet cake mix, 2 eggs, veggie oil and some Valentine M&Ms and you have the easiest way to have a festive treat!
Homemade Heart Pizzas
We made homemade pizzas for our Valentine’s Day date night in. We got premade dough, some canned pizza sauce, cheese and pepperonis and that is all you need. We had fun decorating and assembling our pizzas and then popped them in the oven and dinner was served. This was such a fun activity to do together that was also super easy and simple. Another great way to get your guy into the kitchen as well and you get the fun of making something together.
There you have it! Some easy, cheap and fun ways to celebrate valentine’s day at home in the kitchen. I hope you enjoy!
