Valentine Candy and Cookie ideas....

Here are a few SWEET ideas for Valentines Day - or Galentines Day.

Make a few chocolate lollipops using chocolate wafers and some candy sprinkles:

or just plain chocolate:

Chocolate Peppermint Bark is easy to make with white and milk chocolate wafers and leftover candy canes, crushed:

Just refrigerate and break it up and it's ready to share or enjoy yourself:

It's delish!

You can make a lollipop bouquet with Tootsie Pops....

...perfect for children:

If you aren't in the mood to make something, just buy some pastel dinner mints....

...or good old fashion conversation hearts:

I often have leftover candy from Christmas, so I put some Hershey Santa Hat Kisses out on the side table - BUT -  I need to change my walk pattern because every time I walk buy a snag a piece!

Jello Cookies are easy and delish - recipe

These shortbread cookies are so easy to make:

Here is another delicious candy treat: 

Hawaiian Chocolate

2 11oz pkg Giradelli white choc chips
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup dried pineapple, chopped
1 cup crushed corn chex cereal

Put last 3 ingredients in a large bowl and pour melted white chocolate over it. Toss and spread out on parchment paper and cool to set. Break into bite size pieces.

Whatever you choose to make for Valentines Day, make it SWEET!

  1. Love all of your ideas, Patti, but the Hawaiian Chocolate sounds amazing! Macadamia nuts are one of my favorites.

  2. All sweet! Good ideas, but I'll need to deliver them to others. Currently off the sugar wagon. 😂😂😂

  3. Each and ALL of these look so good! We are sweets lovers in this house, for sure. Right now the dishes are filled with Dove milk chocolates and those candy-coated mints from Cracker Barrel, but I have the makings of peppermint bark, good idea! That lollipop bouquet in your vintage milk glass is adorable.

  4. I really like these ideas, especially the Tootsie Pop bouquets. Your presentations are lovely, too! Your shortbread cookies are so pretty, and I am very interested in the Jello cookies. I like how vibrant they are! :D

  5. Candies are delicious and loved by the people of all ages especially the kids. We at The Customize Boxes are outstanding at working to craft the uniquely designed Custom Candy Display Boxes which captivate the attention of the prospects.
