It’s Almost Valentine’s Day!
Can you guys believe it’s February already? Before you know it Valentine’s day will be here! I don’t know about you guys boo crew, but for me, Valentines Day means sweets… and more specifically CHOCOLATE!
There are so many amazing food artists out there on the internet these days that it can be hard to sift through the sea of food. If you’re like me ( Read: the attention span of a hamster.) you can easily get distracted by the hundreds of other recipes they have available on their sites and then forget what you went there for in the first place. Sure, there’s Pinterest or Foodgawker but you run into the same problem there and next thing you know you you’re pinning Lord of the Rings crafts. (true story)
I’ve Taken the Guess Work Out of it
I’ve put together what I think are the absolute cutest recipes out there this year for Valentines Day from around the blogosphere. Many of these would make awesome treats to take in for school parties. They would also be great for after school snacks, or just to eat on your own while the kids are at school (Don’t judge me).
Strawberry Valentine Sugar Wafers
These simple yet super yummy cookies come from Southern Made Simple. Personally, I think that these would be absolutely perfect to make with the kids.
St. Valentine’s Day Rice Krispies Treats Love Letters
In the mood for a cute, decorated treat but not quite feeling a cookie? These Rice Krispie Treat Love Letters from Party Pinching might be just the thing. I immediately feel in love with the envelope pattern on these. They are absolutely too cute, and such a quick treat to put together!
Love Monster Cupcakes
These Love Monster Cupcakes from I am Baker greet you with a hidden message that makes them almost too cute to eat. (ok, who am I kidding… it’s a cupcake. I’m going to eat it.)
Valentines Day Donuts
Start your Valentines Day off right with these absolutely amazingly cute donuts from The First Year. They take a little longer to make, but they are so adorable that they are so worth the extra effort.
Ding Dong Valentines Chocolate Hearts
Speaking of pastries Oh My Goodness Chocolate Desserts knows the way to my heart with these fabulishious Ding Dong Valentines Chocolate Hearts. Do they even make ding dongs anymore? I don’t think I’ve seen them in stores for ages? At any rate, they aren’t heart shaped!
Chocolate Hand Pies
Looking for more chocolate? You know I am! Perhaps a little more “grown up”? These chocolate hand pies from Sally’s Baking Addiction are just the thing to make for your sweetie.
Valentine Tic Tac Toe Snack Craft
Playing with your food? Now you’re talking! With this Valentine Tic Tac Toe Snack Craft from Sippy Cup Mom you can do just that! Once again, this is a great one that you can do with your kids which gives it major bonus points in my book!
If you are looking for something this year for Valentines Day that is both adorable and addictive then Sparkles to Sprinkles has just the thing for you with this awesome Valentines Crack recipe.
Teddy Bear Graham Cookies Holding Conversation Hearts
If you have little nerdlets in the house it doesn’t get much better this Valentines Day than these awesome little Teddy Bear graham cookies from hello, Wonderful. I love these little guys. I could see myself having a problem with not stopping with just one or two of them though!
Valentines Day Marshmallow Wands
Cast a sweet love spell on that someone special in your life this year with these adorable Valentines Day marshmallow wands from Two Sisters Crafting.
I Was Told There Would Be a Bonus Surprise…?
If you are like me your fur kids are just as important as your people kids. I am always excited when I can find a fun surprise for my dogs. This Valentines Day will be no exception thanks to this super cute Dog Treat Conversation Heart Recipe from the Etsy Blog. I am so smitten with these and will be making them ASAP for my girls.
