All the seasonal favorites are here: Valentine’s Layer Cakes, Valentine’s Heart Cakes and Jumbo Valentine’s Cupcakes that are specially decorated. Easy desserts like Rice Krispie Treats can also be enjoyed and made festive by using cookie cutters in the shape of hearts, x’s or o’s. Red food coloring can also be used to dye the Rice Krispies red or pink.
February is also National Chocolate Lovers Month! King Kullen has a variety of Russell Stover Valentine’s Hearts available in store for Valentine’s Day. Dark chocolate is considered to be beneficial due to the nutrients it contains. In order to be considered nutritious, the dark chocolate must contain a high cacao content – about 70-85 percent. Dark chocolate contains healthy fats, fiber and minerals (iron, magnesium, copper and manganese are a few), and is a great source of antioxidants. In addition, it can help to lower bad cholesterol levels (LDL) and increase good cholesterol levels(HDL). Finally, dark chocolate helps to improve brain function, increasing alertness, and can help protect the skin against harmful UV rays.
King Kullen also has everything in stock needed to enjoy one of these recipes that are sure to please any chocoholic! Stop by the Bakery Department for bagels, rolls, breads, cakes, pies, pastries, brownies and cake kits.
Strawberry Dark Chocolate Bark – this simple treat requires only two ingredients and takes mere minutes to make! It’s also fairly healthy as far as treats are concerned!
As always, King Kullen Grocery Co., Inc. has plenty of all the ingredients needed to make any of the above recipes. The friendly and helpful staff members are always eager to help out and make sure everyone who walks in finds what they need.
