Valentine's Day Snacks to Make with Kids & Weekly Link Party

Valentine's Day is about one month away with all it's love, hearts, pinkness, and goodies! And few things say, "I love you!" quite like homemade treats. What's better than making homemade snacks for the ones you love? How about making them with the ones you love? Here are several Valentine's Day snacks that are perfect to make with the youngest loves in your life--the kids!
One of my favorite things to do with my kids during the holiday season is to bake and make homemade goodies. Unfortunately, we didn't get all our baking fix this year since the whole family came down with the flu followed up by some secondary infections that required antibiotics. Yuck! I know! We ended up being sick for weeks. And truth be told...we were barely able to even enjoy Christmas.

Valentine's Day is our chance, though. We are going to make all the Valentine's Day treats and snacks that our tummies can handle. LOL! Well, maybe not that many for me since I've been on a roll losing weight--35 pounds now. Yay! But for me making homemade treats is less about making the treats and more about making memories. Wouldn't you agree? So...for this Valentine's Day, here are several snack ideas that'll have you and the kids (or grandkids) making wonderful memories in the kitchen.

1. Heart-shaped Biscuits / Crafting a Family
Little hands would love making these adorable biscuits. Plain or topped with jam, they're an ideal snack for Valentine's Day.

2. Valentine Cookies / The Country Chic Cottage
Aren't these love bug cookies adorable?! It's a quick and easy recipe that the kids will love!

3. Coconut Cherry Angel Bars / From Playdates to Parties
These look and sound delicious! And the best part is that they only require three ingredients to make!

4. Homemade Heart Chocolates Crafting a Family
These homemade treats are so fun! And the possibilities are endless on what you can fill the chocolate bowls with.

5. Chocolate Pretzel Bites The Life of Jennifer Dawn
Here's a treat that's a tasty mix of salty and sweet! Wouldn't these be a fun candy to make and gift to others this Valentine's Day?
Now it's time for...
