It’s a tradition at my house to have some friends over on Valentine’s Day. I know most people go out to romantic dinners but sometimes going out is just too much hassle. Finding a babysitter, making reservations, getting dressed up, going out…Sometimes, I’d just rather stay home! Snacks are pivotal to our parties so here are some staples that are great for parties or even gifts!
Twinkie Hearts: It’s not really hard and I’m not the biggest fan of Twinkies but my kids love them. They don’t get them on a regular basis so I figure that Valentine’s Day is a great time for them.
Popcorn: But not just any popcorn! White Chocolate popcorn with heart shaped sprinkles. It’s seriously addicting.

Fruit Kabobs: Basically all you need is some fruit, a heart shaped cookie cutter and some kabob sticks. Yum.
Pretzel Buttons: I love having the kids make these with me. It’s quick enough that they won’t get bored.
Cheese Platter: I LOVE cheese and making a cheese platter for my parties with my handy dandy cookie cutter is just too much fun.
Smoothies: I make strawberry banana or pineapple smoothies and put them in small, clear plastic cups. It easy to serve and everyone can enjoy it.
