Hi everyone! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. again.

I’m back to share with you an fun little Valentine’s Day treat you can make with your kids. This is super simple, makes a great little gift & will have your guest so impressed when you share them at your Valentine’s Day party.

Hearts & Kisses Cream Cheese Mints, fun treat to make with your kids. Give them away at your Valentine's Day party and impress your guests!
You can really shape them however you like. Normally I would use a star tip on my piping bag – but I thought making them in the shape of hearts & “kisses” would be cute since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.
