Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, and what better way to celebrate than having some delicious treats. If you need some last minute gift ideas for that special someone, here are ten easy recipes for yummy snacks you can put together that they’re sure to love!

1. Valentine M&M Cookie Bars

All you need for this is chocolate chip cookie dough and M&Ms (preferably pink, white, and red ones). This is super easy and takes less than an hour to bake!

2. Rice Krispie Hearts

You can get rice krispies that are pre-made, then use a cookie cutter to shape them into hearts. Lastly, just cover them in pink icing and you’re done!

3. Valentine’s Day Bark

Just fill a cookie sheet with chocolate candy melt, place some pretzels on it, use icing to fill in a heart in each one, and add sprinkles. Then place them in the fridge for a little while and they’re ready to go.

4. Reese’s Valentine’s Hearts

Take a layer of peanut butter that is about half an inch thick and cut it into heart shapes. Then cover them in melted chocolate and you’ve got some homemade Reese’s hearts!

5. Valentine’s Popcorn

This treat is great if you know someone who likes sweet and salty things. Just take some regular popcorn, then you can add whatever you like and mix it up a bit; M&Ms, marshmallows, sprinkles, or anything you want. Just make sure they are pink, white, or red!

6. Cupid Floats

All you have to do is mix together some cherry 7-Up and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, then add your red licorice straw!

7. Chocolate Strawberry Puppy Chow

The ingredients for this one are rice chex cereal, chocolate melts, one and a half cups of strawberry cake mix, and valentine’s M&Ms.

8. Chocolate Covered Strawberries

This one is pretty self explanatory, but everyone loves strawberries and chocolate!

9. Valentine’s Oreos

Just take some Oreos and cover them in pink icing, or whatever color you like, and add sprinkles!

10. Candy

If you’re too lazy to make something yourself, you can never go wrong with just buying some candy, which is always a Valentine’s Day favorite.

These are ten simple recipes for Valentine’s treats if you’re looking for a unique gift for someone this holiday!
