Did Anyone Ever Tell You, “It’s what’s inside of you that counts …”? | Valentine’s Secret Gift Boxes

Well it’s true! Especially when it comes to these fun Valentine Cookie Boxes we made for our families!

To start, we baked the sides of the boxes, selecting cookie cutters that would work for the size of the secret compartment we needed (enough space leave our candy surprise therein).

After the cookies had baked and cooled, we got to assembling by using one of our whole cookie hearts as a base, piping a small amount of Royal Icing along the edge and setting our cutout cookie on top.

Next, we added our secret candy surprise!

Then we piped around the edges of the cutout cookie and carefully placed our third layer to the top. Our boxes were complete … well almost!
