Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, so we're totally taking a break from all of the healthy eating for the day! I remember in college the Psychology Club had an annual bake sale every Valentine's Day called the Love it or Hate Bake Sale. We sold desserts for people who both celebrated and hated Valentine's Day. It was the perfect marketing strategy! People who didn't care for Valentine's Day were happy with their Anti-Valentine's Day treat and lovers were happy to share their bright and colourful treats with each other. That was actually the inspiration for this cookie. To be honest, I never thought I would make cookies , but as the saying goes, "Never say never."
This recipe doesn't get any easier. In fact, it's not even actually a recipe. It uses so many shortcuts that none of it is from scratch, but that doesn't make it taste any less delicious! All you'll need is a package of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Mix, two cans of frosting (chocolate and strawberry or vanilla with food colouring), and of course sprinkles!
Bake the cookies according to the package directions, and wait for them to completely cool. While the cookies are cooling, you can melt the frosting in the microwave. But just remember, melt it too much and you've got watery frosting that won't stick to anything and in about one minute the frosting will return to it's original texture so you've got to work fast.
