The Top Ten Super Sweet Snacks of Valentines Day 2017 (with a Bonus Surprise)

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.

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!

  1. There are so many cute ideas here! I especially loved the wafers because you can dip them into various colors and also vary the sprinkle types – so appealing for kids to make as an edible craft, and they’ll love that they can individualize what they’re making. I also like the rice crispy valentine letters!

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      Thanks! I agree, they are very versatile, you could really use them for any holiday! Southern Made Simple really came through with a great treat on that one!

  2. Deanna says:

    These are all adorable. I really love the love letters, monsters and tic tax toe. So fun!

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      Food is so much better when it is fun isn’t it? lol

  3. I love all your ideas. They all look so good. The strawberry wafers look delicious.

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      Thanks! I agree they really do look good. Southern Made Simple really made an awesome snack there! 🙂

  4. Becki says:

    You really do have the best ideas right here! I really like the rice crispy treat envelope (I might have to try that one)! I also think the tic tac toe one is really cute. It would be fun to make with young ones 🙂 Thanks for helping me avoid Pinterest, lol!

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      They are. I would almost feel bad eating them lol

  6. Krysten says:

    So many fantastic Valentine’s Day ideas! I really like the donuts, I think they are super cute, but I don’t think I could do the icing on it. I could however do the V-day crack, oh my god, that looks good and easy!

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      I know what you mean. I always see things that are so pretty and then realize mine would most likely just look like something pink exploded on it lmao.

  7. Lots of Valentine’s candy recipes! Have a wonderful Valentines day. 🙂 i love strawberry wafers.

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      Thanks! You too!

  8. Bernadette says:

    I love those monsters. We did the wafers last year, super simple and kids were able to pick what sprinkles and colors they wanted to use.

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      I love that. We always have tons of sprinkles around for things like this so I can’t wait to try it at out house too.

  9. My most favorite was the wafers. I LOVE wafers.

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      Me too! They are so simple but so good.

  10. Azlin Bloor says:

    Those wafers are so adorable and I love that they are easy to make. Love the dog treats too!

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      I always have to include my dogs in the holiday fun. They are my “adopted kids” lol.

  11. Elizabeth O. says:

    This is so awesome! I love each and every one of your ideas. The hand pies take the cake for me though. I think it’s nice to be able to make treats for our pets too! They need to feel the love on Valentine’s Day just as much as we do!

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      They are so cute. They look a little more difficult, but so worth it.

  12. Claudette says:

    There will be some very happy people around this Valentine’s day if even half of your ideas are taken onboard!

    1. ghastlygirl says:

      I agree. You can’t go wrong with baked goods lol

  13. aziel says:

    Everything looks beautiful! I really love all of these so perfect on Valentines day
