Whip up some special Valentine Cookies this season
Valentine cookies play a massive part in the Valentine’s Day festivities and it with this in mind that so many people either buy or bake cookies and other sweet treats for their loved ones. A great way of impressing your other half on Valentine’s Day is by whipping up some Valentine’s cookies and treats and making them feel truly special. Cookies, macaroons, cupcakes, and heart shaped candies are just some of the lovely sweet treats that you can send to your beaux this February 14th.
Valentine’s Day is about sharing the love –s o why not personalise your cookies? Either bake your favourite person their favourite chocolate chip cookies, bake some beautifully spicy gingerbread people (maybe make them hold hands, or is that a bit much?), or just create some heart shaped cookies and get creative with the pink icing or personalised frosting.

Meringue and Macaroons
Often confused with one another, meringues and macaroons can look similar but are totally different treats altogether. A meringue cookie is crisp throughout but has a slightly crumbly texture when bitten into, whereas macaroons are quite hard but with a slightly chewier texture. Whether it is small cakes or meringue-style cookies that you want to create, these little confections are a beautifully light treat for your lover.

Heart shaped candies and truffles are the perfect gift to give your Valentine this February 14th. If you’re not feeling particularly adventurous, buying “Lovehearts” aka “Sweethearts” with little messages inscribed on them such as “Be Mine” and “I Love U” is the easy option. Homemade Valentine’s candies can be anything from truffles, to nuts, to fudge, to chocolate drops. Whatever you choose to make, this is a great way of sharing the love.
