When Valentine’s Day rolls around, I naturally start thinking about treats, roses, cards and all things sweet. They really make it hard to resist getting in the spirit of things! Everything I see in stores or online is cuter than the last!
With three school aged kids, I have to prepare myself for the classroom parties; there are cards to address, awesome Valentine boxes to construct and of course, goodies to share! In years past I made printable treat bag toppers, and whipped up one of a kind snacks to send to school. But this year is a little different.
This year, instead of losing sleep, or feeling like I have let the boys down, I am going to turn to a trusted favorite brand and let Voortman‘s treats do the sweet talking for me.
Voortman’s cookies are a pantry staple at my house. My boys love them as an afternoon snack and you can’t go wrong with a cookie for dessert. On busy nights, I thank my lucky stars for a brand we can all agree on, and feel satisfied with.
My favorite flavors for Valentine’s Day include Chocolate Chip cookies, Fudge Coated Caramel Wafers, Chocolate Salted Caramel Wafers, and Chocolate Raspberry Wafers.
To make the process simple this year the boys and I decided to send a few packages of Chocolate Chip Cookies to the class for a treat during the party. Everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie and going with a classic flavor from a trusted brand means everyone can indulge.
But, what about the treat to send home with classmates? Sure I could go with a bag of suckers or even a trinket like a pencil, but kids don’t really want pencils and we all know that the boys will bring home a handful of suckers and other candies from their parties. We thought it over and decided to make a snack bags.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- ziploc bags
- heart shaped foam pieces
- glue or tape
- printable tags
- Voortman’s Cookies and Wafers
These unique and tasty flavors are perfect for sharing. They are also a lot more gratifying to snack on than a lollipop!
This year, if you are short on time, or maybe not into baking so much, follow my lead. Head to the nearest grocery store and stock up on Voortmans cookies. They are the perfect way to share a smile this Valentine’s Day.
