    Great suggestions Susan, I like the variety. I feel like Valentines is right around the corner and I haven’t done a thing. At least I have a starting point now. 🙂

    • Hi Debra, Thanks, I kinda knew you’d like these. Being from a marketing and advertising background, i have yet to get over looking ahead to next opportunity. I’m already working on St Paddy’s Day, Easter with eye to Mother’s Day and on it goes. That said, I am WAY behind putting something together for my husband… LOL.

      I’m just curious, if you did try one of these treat, which one would it be? 🙂

      • Debra Yearwood

        The spoons and the pretzel pecan treats would be the two I’d start with, in part because the spoons look pretty straight forward and also because I love pretzels with chocolate, of course I’d have to hide the nut ones from the kids. 🙂

        • Debra Yearwood

          I should mention that I made the Oreo cookies so while I know the are amazing, I’d want to try something new. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Wonderful and, no doubt, delicious, Valentine gifts, Susan. Anyone, apart from people on a diet, will be delighted with such gifts.

    • Indeed, the diet thing does pose an issue Catarina. However, I have yet to be turned away with my bag of goodies. There is always a smile with the phrase “oh I’m on a diet and shouldn’t” but their hands are out and they never turn these down… LOL.

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Very nice Susan! A variety of treats to make any Valentine’s Day special.

    • Thanks Cheryl. I am going the get you in the kitchen yet my friend. 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    As usual, one great idea after another… though I have no Valentine to speak of…not in the “classic” sense! Hahahaha! Guess I’ll make these for some friends, and maybe a few for myself….the homemade Oreos are calling to me 🙂

    • Hi Jacqueline. You do have yourself, and that is the best Valentine I can think of… just saying… LOL. The Homemade Oreo’s are just amazing and I do love the taste. I know you will too. So what is your favorite sweet treat indulgence?

      • Jacqueline Gum

        Mostly fruit flavored – lemon drops, orange slices, sour balls, Starburst!!! I’m all about the sugar! LOL Love maple sugar candy and even rock candy 🙂

        • I love anything with lemon and is sour. Actually, like you, anything that has sugar… LOL. Oh, and don’t even get me started on chocolate. :-)))

  • I love how you have many of your treats gathered in one post. We have our Jewish holiday of Purim coming soon, when we give our friends treats. You are giving me some creative ideas.

    • Oh, these would be great for that Leora. I also know you would have a great deal of fun making and packaging them as well. Which one would you try first? 🙂

  • These all sound fabulous Susan. I don’t know how you can make them all. And that’s not even the packaging. Your valentine is a lucky one!

    • These goodies really aren’t very hard, which is why I can do this and make everything look so fabulous A.K. Give a few of these a try. I may just convert to you to making these simple and easy treats as a gift or two.

  • They sound so yummy and I know I would love to get some of these gifts.

    • Hi Jo-Anne, Me too, and I so love giving as well. I do know that the ones who receive them, always have a great big smile on their faces. You gotta love that. 🙂

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    Great way to feature previous posts as well as serve as a reminder that I need to those peanut butter cookies!

    • Thanks Jeri, I thought so too. Those peanut butter cookies are my all time fav. Whenever I need a lift I whip those sucker up and the blues just disappear.

  • Oh, gosh! I want to be your valentine! What a ton of goodies. I love these types of things that are made from the heart.

    • Hi Carla and welcome. I do too. Right now, I do have some very happy friends and family. I’ve even gotten a call asking when they would be getting theirs… LOL.

  • Rebecca Thompson

    Although Valentines Day is celebrated in Australia, we don’t really do much, it is rather close to my birthday and we choose to show our love throughout the year. However, these gifts from the kitchen look so good, I may just have to rethink this concept this year 🙂

    • Hi Rebecca, I love that you do that. Love really should be an all the time kinda thing. I love Valentine’s Day because ti have a great excuse to make and share some fun goodies with everyone. If you try any one of these, which would the one you would try first? 🙂

  • Mama G

    Susan, these all look absolutely delicious! I’m in heaven with this post!

    • Hi there Mama G, WOO! HOO! Thanks so much for stopping by and I do hope you give a few of these are try. 🙂

  • Susan, I didn’t know how creative you were! What great goodies. My favorite is the chocolate dipped spoons! What a great treat!

    • Aw, what a nice thing to say Donna… blush! Thank you for the compliment. The spoons are incredibly easy, so give them a try. Aside from the spoons, what else would you try? 🙂

  • How I wish we lived closer to one another, Susan. Would love to be the recipient of one (or more!) of those tasty recipe masterpieces, as I see the bulk of them contain chocolate. Yours in chocolate love and admiration …

    • I would love that too Doreen. Most all of these goodies do indeed contain chocolate. They are fun to make and even more fun to eat, especially with friends. So what are you doing for VD?

      • Susan: For VD, I am involved in an “Inspired by Chocolate” event at a local golf & country club. We’ll be having a chocolate-inspired art show by a local artists’s group, I’ll be there with my Chocolatour books, we’ll have chocolate donated by the wonderful chocolatier who made the chocolates I brought you, and the club will be serving a special dinner topped off by a chocolate buffet. It should be an amazing day!

        • Oh, that sounds like it was great fun Doreen. I so loved the chocolate you gave me. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    I like the spoons and peanut butter cookies with the hershy’s kiss was always a favorite treat for me growing up. Even with my aversion to chocolate, the combo is always a pleaser for me.

    • Hi Jon, The spoons are killer (inside joke – thought you’d like that word… LOL). I love having them around for visitors. It always makes them smile. Oh and what’s there not to like about peanut butter and chocolate, Enjoy.

  • I’m quite partial to some fudge Susan but all of these recipes look very tasty.

    I’m not the greatest when it comes to cooking but I might give one or two of these a go!

    • Who isn’t Tim… LOL. Yes indeed this is a tasty fudge. some of these treats are just too simple not to have some fun with. Your friends and loved ones would be impressed, I’m sure. 🙂

  • Enstine Muki

    Chocolate Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies? I’m in for this. I love anything choco though 😉

    • Me too Enstine. These are really simple and Oh os good. What other kind of combination is a favorite for you? 🙂

  • Jason Butler

    The homemade oreos look great.

    • They are and there fun to make too, Jason. Do you think you might give them a try?

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    All of these would make darling Valentine’s Day treats. I still need to get my husband something. I’ve been without a car all week.

    • Oh, that must be difficult being without a car Krystle. If you are able and have the time these are all really fun to make. I also think he would love these, all of them. 😀
