Well.. if you know my husband.. then you know a Happy Valentine’s involves lots of Valentine’s Baking Ideas! You sure get to HIS heart via his stomach. When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I think it is always nice to make something yourself – be it a Valentine’s Gift or a special Valentine’s meal. It definitely should not be about how much money you spend, but how much effort you put it! (If you are after some Valentine’s Day Craft Ideas, pop over to Red Ted Art).
So I thought I would share a summary of Valentine’s Bakes past and present:
Whoopie Pie Valentines
We made these last year and they were DELICIOUS. Add the heart shape as a finishing touch.
I can’t say what it is about a cookie on a stick, but it tastes better. I promise. It does. The kids can vouch for it. Super easy to do. Here we have a chocolate shortbread recipe.
Shortbread Valentines Cookies
As you may know by now, we have a favourite shortbread recipe that we love to use in all forms and guises. This time we coloured them pink and made shortbread hearts, then dipped them in chocolate. Yummy.
Remember love heart sweets? Why not make some cute cookies with messages on them for Valentine’s? These are bound to go down well!
I just love these little sweethearts. Two little gingerbread men saying “I love You”. Say aaah. Perfect for sharing.
M&M Oatmeal Cookies
I love these M&M Cookies from Beantown Baker – shows that it doesn’t have to be all “hearts” to be lovely indeed. And the great thing about these, is that the kids DEFINITELY can help. I know mine would want to!
Get the Kids Involved
A sweet post making Valentine’s muffins, what I particularly like is how Glittering Muffins involves the young boy. Wonderful to get children involved in cooking and having fun at Valentine’s. Can’t wait to try the muffins too!
Love how a simple decoration turns, some yummy flapjacks into a great Valentine’s Treat! Mmmmh. Thanks Here Come The Girls.
