I can't believe Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. As I've mentioned before we have behavioral parties at school once a month for the kids who have shown appropriate behavior. My instructional assistant and I make all the snacks for the parties following a theme and then the kids get to make a craft. January's party is at the end of the month so we are having a Valentine's Day theme.
I wanted to make some pink desserts but I have several other cakes I have to make for the weekend so I wanted something simple. It doesn't get much easier then crinkle cookies and by using a strawberry cake mix they would be pink. The cookies were simple to make and they turned out great. These are the perfect cookie to whip up on the fly!
