With Valentine’s Day approaching, now is a great time to bake up a few cookies, stir up some fudge and stash it in the freezer for later this month. You can do the bulk of the work now and package it real purty later.
You’ll be a rock star when your kids wake up to individual bags or boxes filled with goodies.
Use the same techniques for baking and freezing Christmas cookies to maximize your time. Certainly, one or two varieties is sufficient for Valentines. Neither of us is Martha, are we?
Some treats to bake and freeze for later:
- Double Chocolate Magic Bars with Oreos – you may need to make a double batch if you want these to ever reach the freezer
- Super Simple Fudge – no marshmallow creme necessary
- Oatmeal Thumbprint Cookes – no nuts in this recipe. Use raspberry jam to make them red.
What sweet treat do you like to bake and freeze?
