DIY Valentine’s Day Treats

Celebrating Valentine’s Day this year? Well whether or not you are, I’ve got some pretty cute and easy dessert recipes for you. I created 4 adorable (and pink) recipes that are perfect Valentine’s Day treats for your whole family. You can even make these Valentine’s Day treats for school parties! They are portable and can be put in a bag with a cute ribbon for your kiddos. Everyone will be loving them for the delicious dessert. These can also be handed out to co-workers or friends as a Valentine’s Day gift idea.

This is a great DIY project for you and the kids or even the hubby. These simple desserts are surprisingly super easy to make. You would think they would take longer because they’re so adorable. I created pink velvet cheesecake bars, strawberry milkshake cookies, chocolate-dipped chocolate chip cookies and white chocolate heart bark bites. I’m really happy with how they turned out and I can’t wait to give them out on the February 14th! So let’s hop right into these awesome (and did I say pink?) desserts.

What you need

  • Chocolate chip cookie dough (homemade or pre-made)
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutters
  • Milk chocolate
  • Valentine’s Day sprinkles

  • More rich and chewy cookie
  • Moments of timeless pleasure
  • Delicious ultimate cookie

  1. Roll out your cookie dough. Using the cookie cutter cut out your hearts and put them on a greased baking sheet.
  2. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  3. If your cookies have spread out and look like blobs rather than hearts (mine unfornately did) I have a quick fix. When the cookies are done baking, use the same cookie cutter and cut them out again. You want to do this immediately after you take them out of the oven so it’s easy to cut them.
  4. Let your cookies cool for 10 minutes
  5. Melt your chocolate. Dip half (or a corner) of the cookie into the chocolate. Dip a few at a time, then sprinkle what ever pink/Valentine’s Day themed sprinkles you have. You want to make sure the chocolate doesn’t harden before you add your sprinkles.
  6. Once all of the cookies have been coated and decorated your done!
