Valentines Cookie Stacks

Valentines Cookie Stacks from BigBearsWife.com @bigbearswife
Ok, so we have about 3 or so weeks before Valentines is here. Christmas and New Years are over so I'm totally ok with Valentines Day stuff popping up now (the day after Christmas however, I wasn't to happy to see all this pink and red everywhere)

I'm a total sap for this mushy, love stuff........ ok well kinda.

I'm only a total sap when it comes to my husband. Before I got married I wasn't so fond of any of this Valentines stuff. Even now that I'm married, mushy, lovey, dovey movies kind of make me want to gag and the huge heart balloons and over sized teddy bears at Walmart make me roll my eyes.

But if my husband showed up with a giant teddy bear and roses on Valentines, my heart would explode with all of that mushy, lovey, dovey love. I mean... not that I have anywhere to put a giant teddy bear, but that's not the point.

February not only brings Valentines, but it brings our Anniversary too. On February 3rd, 2013 we celebrate six years :)

*I couldn't have picked a better time to plan our wedding haha, our flowers were red and white roses, my colors were red and white, so with Valentines day almost here I had hundreds of things in my colors to pick from haha*

I made a Christmas versions of these last year and they were such a hit that I wanted to try them out in other colors for upcoming holidays.  Since Valentines is our next big holiday, I figured I'd give them a try.

Easy, easy cookie stacks. And they are oh so cute. Well, at least I think they are.

I can never find good holiday sprinkles around here and to be honest, I have no patience so I hardly ever want to wait to order them online. 

Lucky for me, I've found the Pillsbury icing with the sprinkles in Christmas and Valentines themes at my local grocery store. The icing is already tinted the perfect color and the sprinkles match. :)

Store bought cookies (or homemade), icing and sprinkles. That's really all you need. Oh and cute cupcake liners.

Use a piping bag and tip to swirl icing onto the cookies. Layer with another cookie, swirl some more icing, layer with another cookie and so on until you're reached the desired height.

Add sprinkles and you're done.
