Not sure what to get your sweetie for Valentine’s Day? I have a couple recipes for you that are so easy you can bake these babies up AND devour them in less than 20 minutes! However, if these are a gift, I don’t suggest doing such a thing. I know it can be rather difficult to ignore your inner cookie monster but please try! Your sweetie will love you for it!
