Earlier today I made some Valentine’s Day treats to share at a Valentine’s party for some little girls I work with at my church. These cupid’s floats and peanut butter “love blossom” cookies were both big hits. They were super easy to put together too, so if you need some last minute ideas for your kiddos, a party, or just for your sweet tooth, keep reading!
I found the idea for the cupid’s float on Pinterest, and it’s SO easy! All you need is cherry 7up soda pop, vanilla ice cream, and red licorice for the straw. The licorice was great for the age group I was working with, but if you aren’t a fan of licorice you can definitely find some cute paper straws to use instead.
The peanut butter blossom cookies (I called them “peanut butter love blossom” cookies because instead of the typical Hershey’s kiss I used a Dove chocolate heart) I just made with a peanut butter cookie mix and followed their directions on the box. The Dove Chocolates are on sale at Target right now (and on the Target Cartwheel app too!) and I know this because I just went back there today and bought some more, haha! I’m a sucker for chocolate.
