If you're looking for a last minute, throw-it-together idea for
Valentine's Day, here it is!
I had some raspberry butter cream left over from the cookie recipe I shared the other day, so I bought some chocolate dessert cups at the grocery store and piped in the butter cream.
Super simple, cute and quick!
You could also change it up a bit if you don't want to fill it completely with the butter cream by adding a few raspberries or even chopped strawberries. Yum!
Raspberry Butter Cream
4 c. powdered sugar
½ c. butter, room temp.
2 Tbsp. shortening
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 c. seedless raspberry jam
2-3 Tbsp. cold milk to thin as needed
12 Chocolate dessert cups (I found these at Walmart)
Sift powdered sugar and pour into large bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment.
Add softened butter and turn machine on low, then increase speed gradually until butter starts to break up. Add shortening and continue mixing until creamy.
Mix in raspberry jam, extract and add 1 Tbsp. of milk to start. Mix on medium high until fluffy. Add milk as needed to thin.
Scoop frosting into a piping bag fitted with decorative tip. Pipe frosting into chocolate cups. Top with Valentine's candies or sprinkles as desired.
Happy Valentine's Day!
