Super Cute Valentine’s Day Dessert you Can Make with your Toddler

I love giving thoughtful little gifts around Valentine’s Day to friends and family to let them know how much they mean to us. Aiden loves baking so I thought I would incorporate a weekend activity into a super cute Valentine’s Day gift for his grandparents and child care provider.

We found these super simple Raspberry and Peach Peakcock pies in our Cook by Colours book. We modified the recipe a bit and they came out soooo good.

Once we were done cooking the pies, Aiden taste tested and upon approval, we boxed up the ones going to our day care provider and shipping to family in a Valentine’s Day tin. The ones going to his local grandparents we put on a Valentine’s Day plate.  Note: I found tons of cute options for tins, trays, plates in the dollar section of Target!

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
