I know, this isn’t my usual wine post. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I’ve been busy creating Valentines gifts from the kitchen. With all this activity, I thought it would be fun to share what I’m doing and offer some suggestions.
I do love creating fun things from my kitchen for my family, friends and my hubby, of course. Who knows, it may give you an idea of two.
Valentines Gifts From The Kitchen
First, I gather all the stuff I need to make pretty packages for my Valentine’s Day (or any occasion) gifts from my kitchen. Then it’s time I get to cooking some great Valentine’s Day treats. These are just a few of the sweet treats I’ll prepare. There is a savory list, but that is for another time. 🙂
Easy Dark Chocolate Truffles are always on my list for gifts. What I love about truffles is you can do so many things with them by adding different flavorings, various coatings which make such great gifts for any occasion or holiday. And besides who doesn’t like chocolate.
Chocolate Dipped Spoons are awesome for the coffee lover. They take no time, and they look so pretty all packaged up for a gift. I usually make many more than I need for any unexpected guests and myself, of course. Besides, aren’t we our own best Valentine?
My Easy Fudge Recipe is an all-time favorite for a gift. This recipe is so simple it makes it even more fun to make and give as a gift. All it takes is a few ingredients, a little elbow grease, and the outcome is magical.
Homemade Almond Clusters are so good and so fun to make so they would definitely be on my list. The taste is just right for any almond and caramel lover. When you throw in the chocolate, it’s a winner all around.
Pretzel Pecan Candy Treats are a blast to make, and you will be amazed as to what’s in them. I love making these. They are seriously easy and something you can throw together when you’re in a pinch and need something sweet and bit special.
Chocolate Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies, who doesn’t like peanut butter and chocolate together. These cookies are probably the simplest cookie recipe you will ever find. When you add a chocolate kiss to it, you will make some of your friends and family very happy indeed.
Homemade Oreo Cookies, now these are to die for and are a frequent request from all who have helped me as testers and for good reason. The buttery chocolate taste will make it dangerous to have a good many of these around… LOL. All I can say is you can’t go wrong with these cookies as a gift.
There are other recipes I have yet to post, but be assured they are on their way. Besides, Easter is coming, and I’ve got some fun things in store for you.
Once you’ve made your treats, all you need is a few bits and bows, and you’re good to go. Your family and friends will love that you took the time to make these sweet treats, and you’ll have a great time giving them away.
Time to eat and for some giving…
