These easy Candied Sugar Cookies are a festive Valentine’s Day Treat idea!
Lovely to make for friends and family with a candied topping that adds a fun twist to the cookies. These are also great for baking and sending to someone in a care package.
So here it is almost Valentine’s Day and if you’re like me you enjoy little ways to celebrate with people in your life. I usually like to bake some Valentine’s cookies for my family. I love to celebrate all the holidays with everyone because I really believe in celebrating life’s little moments.
I am working on some fun gifts for friends at work and I also wanted to bake some cookies. I haven’t had a lot of time because this week has been really busy. So today I am sharing a little short cut for you when you want to make some cute Valentine’s snacks but are short on time.
These easy Valentine’s cookies are great with homemade sugar cookies from scratch, but sometimes, to save time I used a bag sugar cookie recipe.
With a little bit of candy melts, these cookies look and taste like something really special. If you use a cookie mix, be sure to follow the package directions for rolled cookies. Once you have them baked, you can begin. You can even use a prepared cookie dough.
These are the candy melts. They come in different colors and flavoring may be added. If you have not tried them, they are really fun and relatively inexpensive at about $2 per bag.
Melt according to package directions in the microwave. You can add flavoring if you like. Then drizzle over cooled cookies.
I like to top with sprinkles because it adds a nice touch. Let cool completely so that candy layer can harden. These are super tasty and oh so easy.
