We are just a few weeks away from Valentine’s Day and it’s time to think of gifts for your loved ones. Most everyone enjoys a box of chocolates but I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t enjoy some homemade sweets for Valentine’s Day!
Whether these are for your sweetheart, parents, children or friends, this collection of treats are festive and lovely.
Heart Shaped Linzer Cookies
I have always loved Linzer Cookies and what’s not to love when they are heart-shaped! These cookies from Cooking Classy are perfect or Valentine’s Day.
Heart Shaped Frosted Cookies
I found a fabulous tutorial at Karen’s Cookies on how to create these beautiful designs on frosted heart-shaped cookies. You’ll want to make these once you see how easy it is because of her step-by-step pictures!
Soft Cut Out Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies
If you prefer a more simple design on your cookies, these cut out cookies from Sally’s Baking Addiction are just as festive.
Hand-Dipped Ombre Cherries
These Hand-Dipped Ombre Cherries from Sherrie’s Berries are so pretty! You can order them as a gift or let your creative juices flow and think about what you can make at home with this Ombre effect. (Think chocolate covered strawberries).
Red Velvet Cake Truffles
These Red Velvet Cake Truffles from Ang at Juggling Act Mama are so pretty with the multi colored sprinkles.
Chocolate Covered Pretzels for Valentine’s Day
I have always loved the combination of salty and sweet. That’s why chocolate covered pretzels are right up my alley! These pretzels from Love From the Oven are so colorful with the heart-shaped sprinkles. Visit her site for a full tutorial.
Hugs & Kisses
These French Macaroons from Style me Pretty are adorable with gold X’s and O’s. Love them! Unfortunately there is no recipe or tutorial but they were just too cute not to share. Perhaps they will inspire you in your cookie decorating.
