Spread Some Valentine's Love

Pin It

Valentine's Day is almost here and maybe it's got you wondering what  you can do for that special someone who can't eat the usual Valentine's treats.  After all, we can't let a little thing like a gluten, dairy or egg allergy get in the way of celebrating love.

Baking and decorating heart-shaped sugar cookies is a great family activity to do with kids.  Heart cookies are also fun to bring in to share with classmates or co-workers.  And never overlook a plateful of hearts as a sweet gift for your heart throb.  Just grab some cutsie heart-shaped cookie cutters and pop on over to my recipe for Holiday Cut-Out Sugar Cookies.  My husband and I just made these with our kids last night and had a great family fun evening.

Another very easy idea is to make your own dairy-free heart chocolates.  You'll need a set of  heart-shaped chocolate molds, a bag of dairy-free chocolate chips and this tutorial.

If you'd like to skip the kitchen in favor of the store, you can make up a little Valentine's treat bag.  Always read labels for yourself, but here's a short list of candies that are gluten, dairy and egg-free.
Necco Conversation Hearts, Valentine's Peeps, Skittles, Dum-Dum lollipops, Starburst and whatever else you might be able to turn up at the store.  Just read those labels carefully and have fun assembling your treat bag!

Happy celebrating LOVE with your LOVE-lys!
