Now that the holidays are officially over, it’s time to trade all things peppermint for pink and heart-shaped desserts to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Dairy Queen is already bringing back one of their celebratory treats for their February Blizzard of the Month: Red Velvet Cake. Available in mini, small, medium or large, the Blizzard combines DQ’s vanilla soft serve ice cream with red velvet cake pieces and silky cream cheese icing. While you can already get it even though it’s still January, it will only be available through the end of next month.
If you’re looking for something bigger, Dairy Queen also has a heart-shaped Cupid Cake, which has three different layers, including a layer of the blended Blizzard treat.
The bottom layer is vanilla soft serve, followed by a center layer of red velvet cake pieces, topped with a layer of the Red Velvet Cake Blizzard. Made to serve between 2-4 people, it is also decorated with icing and sprinkles.
Of course, dessert is just one part of making Valentine’s Day special. Aside from the standard chocolate and roses, there are plenty of other gifts to give this year, like an adorable heart-shaped waffle maker or heart-shaped hot cocoa bombs. You can even make some tasty treats yourself, like this vanilla strawberry heart cake.
Bath & Body Works even has a brand new Valentine’s Day collection so you can make a quick gift basket for a loved one or friend. New candle scents include Wildberry Jam Donut and Whipped Coffee, while fragrances, lotions and soaps include Chocolate Covered Cherry and Pink Petal Tea Cake, which has scents of pink rose petals, pound cake and vanilla glaze.
If you’d rather look past Valentine’s Day to the next holiday full of tasty treats, however, Dairy Queen has already brought their Mint Oreo Blizzard back for for St. Patrick’s Day. It has also introduced a new Mint Chip Shake to the menu.
Both products, which will be available through March 17, feature crème de menthe and DQ vanilla soft serve, with the Blizzard treat also having Oreo cookie pieces and the shake having a chocolate cone coating.
