Ahhh, the holiday of love. As a mom or dad, it’s fantastic to share sweets with the sweet on Valentine’s Day. What better, or tastier way to celebrate Cupid’s big day than by sitting down to a pile of tasty treats and lathering them up with all the trimmings? Treat the kiddos in a big way this year and check out these super cool cookie events sure to put on smiles from ear to ear. And maybe even some frosting on the nose.
