  1. I thought the cakes looked yummy, but these treats have me drooling even more! All of them look amazing, but I’m wishing I had one of those cheesecake milkshakes right this minute!

    1. Doesn’t that milkshake seriously look DELISH?!? Think I’m going to make some for our Family V-Day dinner. Have a great day, Kara! 🙂

  2. I’ve been trying to come up with some simple homemade gift ideas for Valentine’s Day, and I’m loving the 2 ingredient Strawberry Fudge! Doesn’t get much simpler than that!
