Valentine’s Day is coming up and whether you have a boo or not, it can be a fun day for making yourself a sweet treat.  

Today is National Peanut Butter Day and even though it's a bit early, it's a perfect day to try out a Valentine’s Day treat (sorry if you’re allergic, this won’t be for you).  

According to the National Day Calendar, the earliest peanut butter was made by the Aztecs and Incas. It still holds as a staple for many households and one of the best combinations for peanut butter is with chocolate.  

Perfect for the upcoming holiday. 

So, if you’re like me, you don’t have a boo, but you can make these treats for your friends, family, coworkers, or just yourself.  

Red Velvet Peanut Butter Blossoms 

This recipe is from I Am Baker and combines three of my favorite things, peanut butter, chocolate, and red velvet coloring. There are 13 ingredients, many of which you will probably have at home, so you won’t have to buy too many things.   

It should take about 18 minutes including prep time and then you will have very cute and delicious Valentine’s Day cookies.  

You can also freeze these, making them easy to prepare ahead of time.  

I will definitely be trying these out for Valentine’s Day this year and even if I make too many, there are plenty of people I can give them to. So, I hope you try this recipe and let me know what you think!
