homemade valentines gifts

Growing up, our family always showed our love with food. My Grandma would let us choose a special cake out of one of her books for our birthday. My Mum would make us a special treat to celebrate an achievement at school. Every now and again, for no reason other than he felt like it, my Dad would cook a fancy meal and write out the menu as specials on a chalkboard. My other Grandma would bake scones and parkin just because she knew we were visiting.

It's no surprise then that cooking and baking are one of my preferred ways of showing someone I love them. Especially now I understand how much work baking can be. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but it would definitely be easier to pop to the shops for a card!

My husband and I don't really celebrate Valentines as such but to be honest, I can't let an excuse to bake him something pass me by (especially when I can combine it with my love of all things, pink, red and heart shaped) so over the next week or so I'm planning on sharing a few simple recipes that would make perfect gifts for a loved one on Valentines Day! Starting with these peppermint oreo truffles.

  • 1 packet oreo biscuits
  • 80g cream cheese
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 2 candy canes, or 4 or 5 peppermint sweets


  • Line a baking tray or dinner plate with baking paper, and bring cream cheese to room temperature
  • Put oreos into food processor, and process until the biscuits resemble bread crumbs
  • Add cream cheese and process again until combined, the mixture should be starting to stick together
  • Roll into balls, and put on your lined tray/plate
  • Put into the fridge to firm up. I left mine for about an hour or so.
  • Put your candy canes/peppermint sweets into a sandwich bag and bash them with a rolling pin or similar until they break up into little bits
  • Melt white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, taking care not to let the bottom of the bowl touch the water
  • Dip your rolled oreo pops into the melted chocolate one at a time, and set back on the baking paper lined tray
  • Once you've dipped them all, sprinkle peppermint pieces over the top and leave to cool
