Ah, Valentine’s Day. For most people, it is a day of love and celebrating being together while others simply call it “Single’s Awareness Day.”
This holiday of love isn’t just for celebrating love, however. It is also a great way to bake fun foods that are yummy and sweet to eat. Not to mention, if you want to get your kids involved in making Valentine’s Day meals, this is a great way to include them in the festivities.
Kids love to help out, especially when it involves food, and on such a sweet holiday where hearts take center stage all over the place, they are sure to find cooking extra fun.
You don’t have to just settle making these foods for kids, though. They are also perfect for celebrating with your special someone. Or, if you are single and don’t really need to be reminded of this fact, then bake these for your friends or family so they know how much you mean to them.
