Valentine’s Day at our house is all about easy to make, fun to eat Valentine’s Day treats.
Working as a children’s librarian for so many years, it was such fun to give out treats after my Valentine’s Day programs and my own kids looked forward to fun parties at school, too. So even though my guys are teens now and I work at a college library helping students with research papers instead of reading picture books to toddlers, I still love giving and getting Valentine goodies. (And my family does, too.) So I have compiled a fun list of 11 treats that will make your littlest cupid all the way up to your grown up sweetheart be glad they are your valentine!
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get treat-making!
11 awesome and easy to make, fun to eat Valentine’s Day treats!
