Valentine Cookies

Valentine’s Day may not be everyone favorite holiday, but most everyone loves a yummy chocolatey dessert!

Especially one that is as simple as this one is to make. It’s like chocolate chip cookies, but better! You bake the entire dough in a half size baking sheet.

Whenever I add M&M candies to cookies or baked goods I like to add half to the batter or dough. Once I’ve scoop, spread or pressed the dough into what I need it to be.

Then I add the remaining chocolate candies over the top before I bake it. It makes for a better presentation and makes all those baked goods look extra appetizing!

Once it’s cooled for a bit, all you need to do is cut it into squares and serve. It makes it a bit easier than scooping out each cookie, but is just as delicious!
