Penguin Oreos for Valentine


These are really quick and easy to make for Valentines. I have a slight obsession with penguins - they are just so cute! Apparently emperor penguins mate for life and they are often seen as quite romantic. I saw these online and thought it would be a great Valentine project which is also slightly different from your usual heart shaped cookies, brownies, cupcakes ... not that there's anything wrong with those! I have planned a special Valentine bake but I'm not sure if I'll have time to bake it before the 14th so watch this space! I do have another quick no bake recipe to share with you tomorrow that you can make for Valentine.

I'm sending this to a few blog challenges this month. 

AlphaBakes hosted by Caroline from Caroline Makes and myself on alternate months. The letter this month is "V" and Caroline is accepting all Valentine related bakes. This is not technically a bake but I hope it's acceptable! 


Treat Petite hosted by Kat from the Baking Explorer and Stuart from Cakey Boi. The theme this month is 'Love is in the air' and these definitely fit the bill.

Foodie Friday hosted by Helen from Casa Costello. 


#FoodYearLinkup hosted by Charlotte from My Recipe Book. The link up is open to any foodie posts related to events in the Food Bloggers Calendar for February. These are quite obviously for Valentine's Day!



 All you need is oreo cookies, chocolate chips and heart shaped sprinkles

 Separate the oreo cookies. Scrape off the crumbs from the white centre with a sharp knife. Cut out a triangle at the top to resemble a heart shape. Use a little icing (I used writing icing in a tube) or edible glue to stick the chocolate chips and heart sprinkles as shown. If you want to create wings, cut out a triangle shape from the discarded oreo cookie. PS technically this is not hand made but hand decorated but I like the ribbon! :)

  4. Love them!! I have always been a fan of penguins, but had to stop telling people after one Christmas I received nothing but penguin stuff...socks, jammies, sweaters, mugs and so on it was a bit much. That hasn't stopped me from loving penguins though... and therefore I love these! They are so cute!
