Looking for an easy Valentine’s Day dessert? I have a great idea for you and it will only take 2 minutes in the microwave and under an hour in the fridge. The best part? You can make this dessert your own easily, the possibilities are truly endless.
I love my Wilton Shot Glass Mold! Ever since I made these Homemade Chocolate Shot Glasses with Gingerbread Cheesecake Filling, I’ve been thinking of more ways to use the mold (spoiler: I have a few fun posts planned).
Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to do a themed post using more Candy Melts. In this “recipe” I used both the Wilton Bright White Vanilla Candy Melts and the Wilton Bright Pink Vanilla Candy Melts.
Using two different colors of Candy Melts is fun. I did some white, some pink, some half and half, one with sprinkles along the top and then I marbled the two together and created my favorite shot glass. I also added some Valentine’s sprinkles in the marbled shot glass, but you couldn’t really tell they were in there.
I put together a quick video of how I put this easy Valentine’s Day dessert, for those of you who are like me and learn better from videos!
Easy Valentine’s Day Dessert: Vanilla Chocolate Shot Glasses
To fill these shot glasses I used some heart sprinkles and good ol’ fashioned canned whip. The original plan was to whip up a strawberry cheesecake filling, similar to the Gingerbread Dessert Dip but I fudged that one up and added too much strawberry yogurt. It’s too tasty to toss, so I’ll be creating some Valentine’s Day Pancakes tomorrow.
- Note: you will need two separate bowls for each color.

bowlyou will need to microwave it on medium power for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between interval. Do this for a total of two minutes, or until it's full melted. Even if the Candy Melts look like their still a little chunky, keep stirring. You don't want to over cookthem.
- Poor into the Wilton Shot Glass Mold, transfer to the fridge on a flat surface (baking sheet) for at least 30 minutes. Mine were ready when I checked on them after an hour.
