Festive Valentine's Treats

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so it is time for all things red and pink! Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, you can still make and enjoy festive treats! We rounded up some super easy, Valentines-inspired snacks and sweets for you to try out over the next few weeks! 

First up is one of our favorite, tried and true treats that can be revamped for any holiday. All you need to make these sweet and salty treats are: pretzels and rollos, other red and pink candies and sprinkles are optional. All you do is put the pretzels in a single layer on a baking sheet, unwrap the rollos and place one on each pretzel and bake until they start melting. Once soft, you can add red and pink candies or sprinkles, or another pretzel to make a sandwich. These are also great dipped in melted white chocolate! 

Nothing satisfies a sweet tooth quite like chocolate chip cookies, and we are taking cookies to a whole new level! Mix up your cookie dough and make one giant cookie out of it, kind of like a cookie cake or skillet cookie! Once you bake, add in some Valentine’s candies, we suggest m&ms, right away. You can also use icing and sprinkles to decorate, too - you have total creative freedom here! 

Another festive treat to attempt are these adorable Valentine’s macarons! Macarons are so tasty and are great party desserts, and making them festive is just that much better! You can make macarons into heart shapes, and even use food coloring to turn them pink! There are tons of recipes out there for macarons, so give it a Pinterest search and try your hand at something new!
