What Valentine's Day would be complete without a little candy surprise for the kiddies? Colorful candy hearts and store-bought chocolates aside, there's lots of fun to be had creating tasty treats from scratch.

Peanut butter fudge, chocolate cream cheese fudge, white chocolate truffles, raspberry shortcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries, butterscotch pralines, pecan pudding, rice crispy hearts -- there are lots of options to please even the pickiest taste buds.

Baking a special treat with your child not only lets you spend some quality time enjoying each other's company, it's also a great way to let your little Valentine know they're extra special. Consider having a few of their friends over, too, for a Valentine's Day Cookie Party.
