Are you tired of Valentine's recipes from me yet? I can't help myself! I'm a big, romantic sap and I love the lovey-dovey nature of Valentine's Day. I always have. And this year, while we were visiting my parents over Christmas, I had loads of time to play around and create lots of yummy love day treats! Petit fours are perfect bit-sized treats for tea time. All you need is a strong brew and you're in business.

If you make my Red Velvet Popcorn, then this recipe is perfect for using up all that leftover cake. In fact, that's exactly where this idea came from! We have these things here in the UK that are petit fours but they're sold in the supermarket so they're not posh or high end, but they're called French Fancies and they're basically vanilla sponge cane with a bit of cream dolloped under the top and coated in fondant and they were the inspiration for these petit fours. Except, I swapped the fondant for that Valentine's staple: chocolate.
