In particular, I am reminded of one year in high school when a good friend and I were both single and decided we would be each others Valentines… We bought each other roses and she and I sat in the cafeteria munching on a giant box of chocolates during lunch. I think that may have been the only year where I actually bought chocolates and roses for Valentine’s Day… My hubby isn’t really into flowers. I bet you’re shocked.
Instead of making homemade chocolates this year, I decided to decorate some box of chocolate cookies instead… You know, those heart-shaped boxes that can only be found around Valentine’s Day. It seemed like a fun cookie design to try just for fun (and a good way to use up the rest of my Nutella cutout cookies and royal icing from my heart cookies last week).
While I was at it, I made some small gift box cookies, as well… I imagine the boxes are full of jewelry and other fun gifts… Diamonds, probably!
Plus, my hubby may not be thrilled about getting chocolates and jewelry for Valentine’s Day… But, he’s happy to munch on some cookies!
