Baking with HARIBO Heart Throbs!

Every Valentine's Day I buy Stu some sweets or chocolates. Usually they I go for fun one's and there is nothing more fun than HARIBO!

This Valentine's day treat your loved one to a tasty treat from HARIBO, the Heart Throbs Gift Box is filled with pretty jelly and foam hearts and is the perfect present for the sweet lover in your life.

Instead of just taking a photo and telling you about them I thought I would put them to some use while baking. HARIBO's are amazing by themselves but it's an extra treat when cake is involved!

Poundland have a 3 pack of heart-shaped ramekins on sale at the moment which I bought a couple of weeks ago and I have been dying to use them. I wasn't 100% sure if they were oven proof but it turns out they were. Phew!

I used basic sponge mix and buttercream icing on the top with a little red icing in to make it pink! Of course I used the Haribo hearts to decorate. They're not perfect but they're cute.

I then found my heart shaped baking tin which only seems to get used at this time of year and made a chocolate cake. It was going to be a sandwich cake but I managed to burn the 2nd one when my food shop was delivered! 

Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing, of course decorated with the HARIBO Heart Throbs and some ready to roll icing that I found in the baking cupboard which I cut out myself. I was so chuffed with how it turned out and it tasted so good too!

So there you go. Haribo is good for eating and decorating cakes too!

HARIBO Heart Throbs are available in 140g and 380g gift boxes from the usual places that sell HARIBO.

I was sent a box of HARIBO products in exchange for this blog post.


  1. I've bought some of these for the kids for Valentine's day but not sure they will last that long ! I would have never thought of decorating cakes with them, that's a fab idea.

  2. Not much of a sweet lover. Mint and Orange chocolate are my weakness. I had to replace my little red ramekins pictured as I've no idea where my previous ones have gone. #mmbc
