More Valentine’s Day Goodies

Because, really, you can never have enough cookies to hand out on Valentine’s Day. No one has ever been disappointed because of too many cookies!

Remember elementary school when everyone used to hand out cheesy paper Valentines with Spiderman on them? I haven’t done that in a long time, but I think these are much better anyway. I put these in little goodie bags with my heart cookies and some candy to hand out. They’re so cute!

These cookies are quick and easy to make, and they don’t have to be for Valentine’s at all! I used the Valentine’s M&Ms, but you could use regular ones, or even just chocolate chips. Next time I think I’ll add some walnuts, too.
