What special things do you do for Valentine’s Day? Do you and your significant other celebrate? Do you celebrate with your kids? No matter what you do, you can make some delicious treats for everyone to enjoy on Valentine’s Day! Making these adorable Love Bug Cookies will be a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
If you kids have parties at daycare or school, there are so many fun things in the stores to send in for their classmates! The decor is so fun and bright which is awesome for this time of the year, too! While we don’t personally celebrate a ton on Valentine’s Day, we usually have a special dinner at home – like steak or something – and just relax.
Some ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day with your family are to make these delicious Strawberry Glazed Donuts for breakfast or an after dinner treat. You can also make these adorable Toilet Paper Roll Crafts with your kids! Another fun treat that I like are these Valentine’s Day Dipped Pretzels!
Valentine’s Day Love Bug Cookies
- Chocolate Cookie Dough
- Red Melting Chocolate
- White Melting Chocolate
- Candy Eyes
- Black Gel Decorating Icing
Start by rolling your cookie dough into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls.
Baking according to instructions and let cool completely.
Melt down your red chocolate. Place it in the microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring frequently until melted down.
Dip half of your cooking in the red chocolate and lay on a cookie sheet to set, as shown.
Melt down your white chocolate in the same way.
Dip the back side of your candy eyes into the chocolate and place them on the top of the cookie. Let harden and set, as shown.
Once all chocolate is set and hardened, decorate your red chocolate portion of the cookie with the black gel icing. I decorated mine as a lady bug, as shown.
Serve and enjoy!
