So lovely to be here once again and share some of our favourite Valentine’s Day treats … I am Maggy and I blog over at Red Ted Art where we LOVE to get crafty with the kids.
January was a very special month for us, we had 31 Days of Love. What is that I hear you say? It was a special series, where 62 (!!) bloggers joined me and shared their Valentine’s Day Cards, Treats, Gifts and Decorating ideas with me! It was AMAZING. So many great ideas and talented bloggers.
To wet your appetites, I wanted to share 5 of our favourite Valentine’s Day Treats!
First up, we have these BEAUTIFUL looking Peppermint Creams that Chris at Thinly Spread created for us. I love it, when you make something taste that also looks so PRETTY!
These would be a lovely little gift on Valentine’s or maybe book mark them for Mother’s Day?
Next we have some yummy scrummy chocolate pretzels…. they are practically heart shaped and a perfect for Valentines – a guest post from There is Just One Mummy. Personally, I love the contrast of the sweet and salty. Really good. So good in fact, that we had to make 3 batches over the course of a week. Mmmh.
Jam Tarts. I love these, as these are a treat that is easy to involve the kids in. We love cooking with kids, and this is a great one for them to do. All you need is puff pastry from the shop and some jam. A lovely guest post form Kitchen Counter Chronicals!
We haven’t made these yet, but I think they have to be one of my favourites.. these little “Love Bird Nests”, such a great idea from Sugar Aunts.. ooh I can just taste how good these taste now….. a bit of sweet and salt together again. And EASY to make. Gotta love easy. And don’t they look adorable?!
And last but not least.. how about this super cute Valentine’s Day Lunchbox? I love how you can just do very little adjustments to your normal lunchbox and hey presto, it is FILLED WITH LOVE. Gorgeous. The lovely Michelle from Mummy From the Heart created this one!
