Cupid Is Counting Down To His Favorite Holiday and We're Making Cookies...
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I am full bursting with ideas to make it sweet for you and your loved ones, and I can't wait to share.
If you are anything like me, the holiday is a great excuse to decorate, cook or bake, (and also maybe send a surprise care package or two).
Today I am going to share one of my very favorite recipes (That I learned from Sally's Baking Addiction), for White Chocolate Dipped, Red Velvet Cookies. These cookies are literally a cookie lovers dream in a soft and chewy take on red velvet cake, but my favorite part, is finishing them off by adding two candy eyes (especially for Valentine's Day) and turning them into the from scratch version of the Oreo Love Bug Cookies.
If you're looking to make the Oreo Love Bugs and skip the baking for another day, you can substitute an Oreo, or your favorite cookie and just follow the steps for dipping!
Here's the recipe to get you started but keep reading in case you don't have candy eyes laying around I will share all the links you might need down below...

I personally prefer the Ghirardelli Melting Chocolate Wafers found here https://amzn.to/3HueWjv, but if you re looking for a more economical version Wilton Candy Melts are also a great alternative https://amzn.to/3gAn2uU.
It's east to make these Gluten free by substituting the all purpose flour for King Arthur measure to measure flour in the same amount, or even using the Gluten Free Oreos.
Also if you don't have a set or two of silicone baking mats I highly recommend them - they make everything that much easier.
