How cute are these Valentine Crinkle Cookies? They’re the perfect Valentine’s Day treat to make this year with only 6-ingredients.

I can’t believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day! My kids and I are gearing up to make our favorite recipes for the holiday and to take to school parties. After these Valentine Crinkle Cookies we are going straight for the Chocolate Valentine Surprise Cake and White Chocolate Popcorn.

Valentine Crinkle Cookies

If you love baking cookies your going to adore this recipe. Like many of my favorite cookie recipes the base of this is actually cake mix! Using white cake makes these super moist.

There are just five ingredients in these, making them really simple to make. Once they come out of the oven, just place the chocolate heart on top and voila.

They’re not just for Valentine’s Day!

You can save this yummy recipe and use it throughout the year, exchanging the heart for a Hershey kiss or another favorite chocolate. There is no way I’m going to be able to keep myself from only making these once a year!

You can even use silicone molds and melting chocolate to make all sorts of fun toppers.

Here’s to a great Valentine’s Day with plenty of cookies and chocolate!
