Succulent Valentines with Strawberry Crinkle Cookies

Since I was sick over the Christmas holidays, I really missed out on the baking fun I usually enjoy with my kids. Thankfully Valentines Day is right around the corner, and that offers options for more baking fun. My daughter created these cute little succulent Valentines tags to add to our treats, and we have instant gifts for teachers and friends. Keep reading for the free printable version of the tags and bookmarks to add to your Valentines treats!

My daughter has been in love with succulents for the past couple of years. Last year we even had a "planty party" for her birthday. She's worked hard to learn how to tend to them. I've loved watching her grow in her gardening love. It didn't take long for me to figure out why she was so enamored with these beautiful plants.


She's also been cultivating her love of water-coloring these fascinating plants. I love a good Valentines pun, so I thought it would be fun for her to create some artsy tags that we could adorn treat bags with for our Valentines this year. She set to work, and came up with some beautiful options!

There are six different varieties to choose from, and as a bonus, there are two bookmark options as well to print off and give away as well.

You can fill your treat bags with candy, cute erasers or other non-candy options. We opted for a fresh baked option, which was a simple twist to a classic Christmas crinkle cookie...I love those!

Strawberry Crinkle Cookies

These Strawberry Crinkle Cookies are so simple to make, and they taste as amazing as they look!

Supplies needed:

  • 1 Box strawberry cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • powdered sugar

So all you do is combine the cake mix (you can use any cake mix by the way) with two eggs and the 1/4 cup of vegetable oil and mix. Once you have a cookie-dough consistency, use a melon baller scoop for a small cookie, or a regular ice cream scoop for a big cookie. Roll your cookie ball in some powdered sugar and place on a tray. Leave room between cookies so that as they spread out they don't cook into one another.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

One large cookie, or three small cookies fit perfectly into the treat bags. These tasty treats won't last long, so you might as well make two boxes!

Happy Valentines baking!
