Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday to share sweet treats.
Did you know your grocer’s bakery has a plethora of yummy treats, that with a little creativity and some fun free printables, can turn into perfect Valentine’s party treats or gift ideas?
The truth is we don’t always have the time to make homemade treats. That is where your grocer’s bakery can help.
Let me show how to make someone’s day a little brighter, the simple, easy and affordable way, with yummy bakery items from your local grocery store. It’s easy to find delicious treats that you can personalize and give as gifts.
Here is the selection of cookies and brownies I shopped for recently at my local grocery store. I picked some pretty pink frosted sugar cookies with sprinkles, traditional sugar cookies with red sugar, and little brownie bites.
Then I grabbed some small 4″ x 6″ clear plastic treat bags, lollipop sticks, and a simple glass container that I found at the dollar store.
Now, let’s put the two together and watch the Valentine’s magic happen. = )
Havin’ a Valentine’s Day party?
How about make some super cute Cupid’s Arrow Brownie Bites?
Start by cutting up these cute little brownie bites into mini triangles with a sharp pairing knife.
My tween was all over eating the leftover square bits as we were making these.

Use a tape runner to put one line of adhesive down the middle.
Then attach the end of a lollipop stick to the cupid’s arrow flag and press together slightly.
The other end goes into your brownie bite triangle, making the cutest Cupid’s Arrow Brownie Bite treats.
