Aside from all the love and romance, I love the chocolate and goodies that come along with it too.

Valentine’s Day gives me a reason to take a little break from my diet and resolutions and just have a day filled with yummy treats.

M&M’s Cookie Tips

  • Take the cookies out even if you don’t feel like they are 100% done. Trust me, you want them to be ooey, gooey.
  • Be careful not to burn the bottoms of the cookies.
  • You can reheat any leftovers in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to get the M&M’s candies nice and gooey.
