Heart-Shaped Cookie Pops
Your children will love to help make this adorable valentines-on-a-stick! For Valentine’s Day, I truly enjoy getting something sweet. And when I say sweet, I’m referring to something that I’d happily consume.
Bake some chocolates for me, please. Give me some candy! Make cookies for me. Give me these cake pops for Valentine’s Day!
Instead of rolling individual pops, I utilize a different method. Small cookie cutters, such as hearts, can simply be used to create creative shapes. Stick with cookie cutters with a simple design if you wish to experiment with different forms. It will be difficult for the cake to hold its shape if you attempt anything too elaborate.
To put it in other words, hearts are perfect!
As you offer this miniature delicacy to your sweetheart, you might explain that these hearts, like yours, have been pierced by Cupid’s arrow.
Be excessively sweet this year for Valentine’s Day, you little love bug. Go ahead and make this recipe below.
