Yum! Valentine's Day Treats!

13 posts in this topic

Got this idea from " 25 + Valentine's Day Treats to Make with Your Kids" on the Cute DIY Projects site.

 

1. Chocolate Strawberry hearts

Chocolate Strawberry hearts

Clean and dry the strawberries before cutting them in half. Cut a little bit more so that you achieve a heart shape then join the together with a tooth pick. Dry the berries before dipping them in chocolate. A thin layer will be ideal compared to a thick one. Add some sprinkles for fun or use different colors of chocolate to dress your chocolate strawberries.

Think I might make these w/ my granddolls if their mom is ok w/ it (or maybe she'll want to do it w/ them).

How about you? Got any Valentine's Day goodies that you and yours enjoy/might enjoy making? Perhaps an old family favorite? Or a new one you're eager to try?

When the kids still lived here we used to make a large heart shaped chocolate chip cookie for dessert on VD. Sometimes, just to make it a little more special I might add a whipped cream ruffley border....

That sounds wonderful! I'd be tempted to put the filling in a pastry bag for an assembly line method.

I'm not going to a Superbowl party, so if I do anything at home it will be nachos for one! If I go to the movies it will be popcorn for lunch. If I were to go to a party, however, I'd probably bring peanut butter cookies....always a hit and if I make them I can't keep them in the house because I'll eat the entire batch....this way I'd get a treat and be done.

We've had 4.5 days of workers underfoot. They have to be fed 3 squares/day. We made twice baked sweets to go with humongous steaks. I don't like meat, but the sweets were quite tasty. Didn't use sugar or pipe the filling, just spooned it in. I think we'll have them for lunch this weekend, our kids and grands love easy, cheap, sweet potatoes.

Italian Baby Kisses  
 
2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
1/3 c melted butter
1/4 c milk
2 t anise
 
Sift dry ingredients together, stir wet ingredients together, add wet to dry, mix. Butter hands, roll 1" balls, bake 375 for 8-10 minutes on buttered pans. Dip warm cookies in glaze - 1/2 c powder sugar, 1/2 t anise, 1T cream, mixed. Sweetheart MIL made me crazy, was a fabulous cook, and adored all of us. She made these cookies for baby births and her sweet baby (my husband) on Valentine's Day. We made them for foo ski weekend, just as yummy as ever. Great with chocolate-fondue.

These are wonderful, any version of them -- recipes vary slightly- As does the glaze- My grandmother used anise or almond or lemon to flavor the cookie or the glaze but truth be told I've never, ever had a bad Anginettie cookie- 5 stars in my book-
