I had been wanting to make a special Valentine treat with my kids this year. Last year we made Cake Batter Rice Krispy. I felt like I needed to come up with another fun and new treat to make. These boys keep me busy and I thought I would not have time to find a recipe and get the ingredients…. I almost gave up on us making a special treat this year. Then, as luck would have it, the idea for the Cookies for Busy Moms came to mind.
Valentine’s Day Cookies for the Busy Mom
My oldest son requested a pack of cookie dough that was pre-sectioned into cookies at the store. We came home with it and I was feeling a little blue that all we would have were these store bought cookie dough cookies. Then I thought why not take these easy cookies and just jazz them up a bit. And that is what we did.
“Simple is not boring” is one of my favorite quotes. These simple store bought sugar cookies would be delicious and fun and not boring.
what we used:
store bought cookie dough
What we did:
Cook the cookies as directed on package. Then let cool. Heat the almond bark in microwave about 1-2 minutes until melted. Dip the cookies in the melted vanilla and lay flat on wax paper. Then add sprinkles. Let almond bark harden. Then EAT!
Valentine’s Day Cookies for the Busy Mom! Who says we can’t make easy fun. Not always do we have to make something from scratch or spend a lot of time creating to have a fun and yummy treat for you and the kids. Maybe you and your kids can enjoy these too.
