Ever since I was a kid, Valentine’s Day has been one of my most favorite holidays. Unlike some of the other popular holidays, there isn’t the same pressure to start planning and preparing for it weeks (or even months) in advance.

A simple token or expression of your love for those you care about is sufficient. Whether it’s a handwritten note, a store-bought surprise, or a homemade treat, the focus really is on the meaning not the item.

These Strawberry Candy Heart Cookies are very easy to make and share. They’re a perfect way to show your friends and family you appreciate them.

STRAWBERRY CANDY HEART COOKIES FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

Pink is a great color for Valentine’s Day and these cookies are the prettiest shade of pink. The darling hearts in the center of each cookie just bring the whole treat together.

There won’t be a child in class who will be able to pass up nibbling on one of these Strawberry Candy Heart Cookies during the party.

STRAWBERRY CANDY HEART COOKIES GET KIDS IN THE KITCHEN

I love to find recipes that my kids can help me make. Getting kids into the kitchen earlier helps them build so many skills.

It is fun to watch them learn to measure and read recipe instructions. I have found my kids get more excited when we are making something they consider to be FUN.

Strawberry Candy Heart Cookies fall into the fun category for sure.
