I still have a couple of weeks before I start my Valentine's Day baking but I'm planning it out now. I was looking through past years to see what I've made and get some ideas. I think it was last year that I made these chocolate brownie cups filled with peppermint frosting.
These are strawberry pillow cookies. I like to make up cookie platters and give them to all of my friends. A lot of them are single and don't even expect anything for Valentine's Day unless I give them something. I've made all of these old ladies look forward to Valentine's Day like they did when they were young!
I give a lot of the trays to my younger friends too. They really look forward to their Valentine's treats and can't wait to see what I've made for them each year.
I hate chocolate and rarely bake with it but I make an exception for this holiday. Chocolate and Valentine's Day are one.
I was rather surprised to see the assortment of things I have baked over the years.
One year I made strawberry marshmallows dipped in chocolate.
Last year my daughter made these gorgeous cutout cookies. She has much more patience than I do!
I even made potivica's one year. I'm leaning in the direction of making kringles since I didn't make them for Xmas. And certainly a bunch of cookies. What are your favorite Valentine's treats?
