In our house, Valentine’s Day is pretty much just another day. I’m not much for big romantic gestures although I do appreciate giving and receiving a little something sweet. This year, more than any other year, we will spend the day at home and make some homemade yummy treats. This Valentine cookie recipe using M&Ms milk chocolate candy is perfect for kids as they love those crunchie colorful candies. Although I’m certain my hubby and his sweet tooth won’t mind them one bit.
