~Love Muffins~

Hello Everyone,
I hope you are having a great weekend. 
We are having beautiful weather today in Northern California. 
If you are new to my blog I'm sharing today  the dessert Sweetheart and I will be eating after dinner on Valentine's Day to celebrate 52 years of our engagement with our annual Valentine's Day Dinner by the fireplace at
 My Cozy Corner

'Red Velvet Love Muffins'

What a fun dessert to make. My granddaughter gave me a cupcake plunger for Christmas and I used it to core the cupcakes.

I filled the 'LOVE MUFFINS' with cherry pie filling and sprinkled the cupcakes with powdered sugar.

'Red Velvet Love Muffins'
1 (18-oz) box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbsp red food coloring
1. Preheat oven to 350*F. 
2. Prepare cake mix according to directions, adding cocoa powder,eggs oil, and water specified in recipe. Add food coloring.
3. Bake for 20 minutes or until done. 
4. Let cool on a wire rack.
Paper liners or molded pans work great for this dessert. I used tin foil heart molds.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with a treat that says "be mine"

I do believe these delicious Cherry-filled cupcakes would be perfect for an afternoon tea party...

My 'Yuletide'camellias are still blooming even with the rain a few days ago. I found a few blooms to put into my 'I Love you' vase. 

Hugs and Kisses to everyone.
