It’s hard to believe we’re already one month into the new year, officially into February and about to celebrate the holiday of love. One of my favorite parts about Valentine’s Day has always been the candy. As a kid, the cards that came with candy of some sort were always the best to give and recieve during the candy exchange. As an adult I enjoy purchasing myself the exact candy that I was hoping for. Even though Angeline is getting older now it’s still nice to let her know I’m thinking about her this Valentine’s Day too.
This Valentine’s Day I made some adorable KISS cookies using my favorite cake cookie recipe and yummy Hershey’s Kisses Conversation Candies (available exclusively at Target) and Reese’s Conversation Cups. It’s fun opening up the Hershey’s Reese’s Conversation Cups to see what’s printed on the inside and they turn a boring Valentine’s Day cookie into a cute message of love.
Plus what’s better in a recipe than chocolate on top of chocolate?!
