As a kid for every holiday my mom would send me to school with a delicious treat to share with my classmates and teachers. I loved this and when I had my own kids I knew this was something I wanted to pass on to them.

For Valentine’s Day this year I decided to make red velvet cake pops. Red velvet is the perfect flavor for Valentine’s Day.
