We thought that a little bit of Valentine's Day culinary inspiration was in order, so we've rounded up a handful of the cutest, pinkest, most adorable treats on the internet.  Fun for both the kids and kids-at-heart, these sweets would make for a great family afternoon in the kitchen!

Confessions of a Cookbook Queen: Chocolate Cherry Bark

Is it just us, or is the cherry-chocolate flavour combination one of the best out there? Especially dark chocolate...yummmm!

Kristan was originally inspired by the Chocolate Cherry Valentine's Day M&Ms, and while we haven't personally seen these in the store you can definitely still re-create this recipe using other pretty Valentines-inspired decorations.

5 Minutes for Mom: Dipped and Decorated Pretzels

Sweet and salty? Yes please! These decorated pretzels are so simple that you don't really even need a recipe (don't worry...we've included one just in case!). Just think of all the fun you could have decorating these with your little ones!

Jelly Shot Test Kitchen: Valentine Jelly Pops

Don't let the blog name fool you...these are completely kid-friendly! We love the layers!

(This might be the most time-consuming recipe here, but the end result is clearly worth it.)
