Valentine’s Day Treats to Make with Kids

Try one of more of these seven yummy treats to make with your kiddos.

Valentine’s Day is not just a day for flowers and candy. The holiday is the perfect excuse to get into the kitchen with your little ones and whip up some lovingly delicious and Instagram-worthy creations that can be made by the tiniest of hands! Here are some of our favorite treats and where to find the recipes.

Cookie Cups

Use mini Reese’s peanut butter cups and adorable heart sprinkles to make perfect after-school cookies.

Cupid’s Popcorn

Fancy up a simple bag of popcorn by adding candy hearts and valentine M&Ms.

Fruit Love Bugs

A healthy (and silly) treat option, combine strawberries, raspberries, chocolate and some sprinkles to make cute bugs.

Marshmallow Pops

Whether your kids use these as hot chocolate stirrers or just eat them by themselves, marshmallow pops are a crowd pleaser. We suggest opting for pretzels instead of a straw.

Mini Valentine Pop Tarts

Using store-bought crust makes this recipe simple. Kids will especially love to frost and decorate their own pop tart.

Pretzel Treats

With only three ingredients, pretzel treats are perfect for the preschool set.

Valentine Hot Cocoa Bombs

The hot chocolate bomb trend isn’t going anywhere soon. Kids will love making and watching a Valentine’s-themed magical bomb dissolve.
