Simple Valentine’s Heart Cake Dessert for Two

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

This recipe is for all of you who need a really simple and fast dessert for Valentine’s.  It’s great for last minute or if it’s been one of those days and you didn’t get to what you originally had planned.  I adapted this Simple Valentine’s Heart Cake from an old issue of Woman’s Day magazine.  You need two main ingredients – Twinkies and frozen raspberries, which you just may already have in your house.  You heard me right, we are serving Twinkies for Valentine’s dessert.  But we are gonna make them look special.

Ok, so if you have the Twinkies and the the raspberries, you need a few more items which you should have in your pantry.  You will need sugar, cornstarch and some water.  The thing that makes this special is you cut the Twinkies to make a cute heart shape and top them with a quick raspberry sauce.  So easy, so cute, and yummy too.  I even saw some banana filled Twinkies.  That was the original Twinkie filling.  It has a light hint of banana and would also work well for this.
Here are a list of other yummy treats for Valentine’s.
