These chocolate chip Valentines cookies are so easy to make and a really great way to make something for a special someone on Valentines Day.
You can use pink, red and white smarties or m&ms to pop on top of your cookies but I managed to pick up some up from Tiger and they’re even in heart shapes, making them perfect for these cookies.
