Fast & Easy Valentine’s Day Desserts

Peanut Butter Cup & Dark Chocolate Carmel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Take the Refrigerated Cookie Dough of your choosing (I chose what was on sale) and either make a round golf-ball looking mound or smoosh 1.5 to 2 pieces together

spray a muffin tin with cooking spray

press it down firmly

Bake for about 6-7 minutes at 350F or until the tops are barely brown

While you’re waiting, be productive:  Unwrap your PB Cups.

And I thought the dark chocolate Dove candies with caramel centerswould be lovely, too.

Make sure little helpers don’t eat the whole candy pile.

Skylar actually is very trustworthy.  She knows to sit tight because this food is going to be on mommy’s blog.  And after all the pictures have been taken, she gets her tastes and sample bites.  The offspring of food bloggers learn young: pictures first, eating second.  Don’t touch til we get the shot.

The 6-7 Minute Wait Is Over.  Remove the lightly browned cookies from the oven, which puffed up nicely.

And drop in the candies.  The sound that the barely-there cookie crust made as I punctured the barely browned surface with the chocolate candies was the sweetest little music to your ears that you could ever imagine.

Peanut Butter Cups make me happy!

And Dark Chocolate Caramels.

I bet Mounds Bar or Almond Joy or Snickers Bombs would be tasty too.

Back into the oven for another 4-6 minutes or until done.
**Note the chocolate will not really melt, so watch the cookie part, not the chocolate candy part, for doneness.

Remove from Oven and Let Cool Completely…

…before you Store them or give them to your Sweetheart.

 And Yes. They were met with Rave Reviews.
He couldn’t decide if he liked the Peanut Butter Cup ones…

…Or the Dark Chocolate Caramel Ones Better.  Hmmm….

….What a problem to have, right!  Which would you pick: PB Cup or Dark Chocolate Caramel?
Vegan ideas…

Whip up some high Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Spoon the dough into your Muffin Tray

Add & Melt a Few Squares of Vegan, i.e. dark baker’s, Chocolate or Chocolate Chips.

Or, Make Your Own Raw Chocolate:
3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp Agave
1 T Tbsp Coconut Oil
Dash of Vanilla Extract
Stir

Or make your own Vegan White Chocolate Like I Told You About Here

Put the Chocolate into the Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough that’s now in the muffin trays and Bake if you Wish, or don’t bake and just enjoy the Dough.

Clearly if you bake it you’re un-raw’ifying this.  But tasty for sure!

There’s always a choice in my recipes; to each her own! I would never judge someone on how they choose to get their chocolate groove on!!! haha!!!  Even if it involves store-bought ingredients!

Dinner was a Green Medley:  Mixed Greens, Asparagus, Brussle’s, Cukes, Tomatoes, Sugar Snap Peas

And dressed it with homemade Vegan Slaw Dressing

Dessert for Scott was obvious.

Dessert for me was a couple Chocolate Dipped Strawberries that I made yesterday with my version of Raw Vegan Chocolate.

What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?
