Yes – these cookies are really that easy to make! Now, if you’re feeling more adventurous you can make my Chocolate Heart Bundt Cakes in the oven:

Step 4 – Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees or until you can insert toothpick into middle of cakes and it comes out clean
Step 5 – Simply decorate by placing candy-coated Heart-shaped pretzel on top while the cake is still warm so that the pretzel will slightly melt making it stick to the cake
I found some great Valentine’s Day cards at Family Dollar at a $1 WOW price. Now I’m ready to send Valentine’s to my family in Oregon!
Want to decorate your table by making an easy centerpiece? I love the way chocolate roses look, so I decided to make a centerpiece out of them. I used a simple glass vase that I picked up previously at Family Dollar and added some decorative green glass pebbles to it to secure my chocolate rose arrangement. The fun part about this centerpiece is that you can eat it too!
Chocolate Roses Centerpiece
- 10 – 12 Chocolate Roses
- Clear Cylindrical Glass Vase
- Green Glass Pebbles
Step 1 – Add green glass pebbles to your clear cylindrical glass vase
Step 2 – Stick the stems of the chocolate roses into the base then place on a red placemat in the center of your table.
While I was shopping at Family Dollar, I looked for Valentines that my boys could take to their class Valentine’s Day Parties. I was thrilled to find these two popular candy Valentine’s: Fun Dip and Skittles. It’s time to write your Valentine’s shopping list for Family Dollar!
