Valentine’s Day Ideas

We’re on the search for the perfect Valentine’s Dad candy or cookie.  Something to mail to my nephew.  At Christmas time I told him that he was officially a member of the Dessert of the Month Club.  That means Aunt Erin has to send a dessert to him every month.  The only problem is, he lives in Chicago and I want a dessert that will mail okay and get there in one piece and not get stale.  Hmmm….

Until we find that ultimate dessert, I thought I’d share some of our Valentine’s Day ideas we posted last year.

Stained Glass Cookies
Milky Way Stuffed Sugar Cookies
Heart Lollipops
Candy iPods
Chocolate Emergency Can
Valentine Rocket
Puppy Love Dinner

Now for this year.  We’d better get started!

I’m linking to the parties on my sidebar.

  11. Great ideas! I especially love the stained glass heart. It is so pretty:)

  12. These are adorable ideas! Love them 🙂 You should definitely make a SkinnyScoop list of your Valentine DIY Sweets ideas…there are a few lists started with Valentine ideas but yours would be a great addition!

  13. I vote for krispy treats as the best mailable treat option. They don’t break and they aren’t heavy! Make them with cinnamon marshmallows, cut them in heart shapes, drizzle with chocolate, perfect! I love all your previous ideas, thanks for the round up – can’t wait to see what you come up with this year!
