I’ll admit, I still don’t have all of my holiday decor put away but I am already thinking about Valentine’s Day and Valentine Candy. Today I made these sweet little Valentine Candy Kisses. They are a delicious little treat and would make a wonderful edible gift for someone you love this Valentine’s Day. When I think about Valentine’s Day candy, I think cinnamon but these candy kisses could be made in a variety of flavors including peppermint, strawberry, raspberry, and many more.
Cinnamon Valentine Candy Kisses
- 5 oz cream cheese softened
- 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
- cinnamon flavoring (a few drops goes a long way)
- 1 tbsp meringue powder
- piping bag fitted with a large round tip
- parchment paper
Add the cream cheese and cinnamon flavoring to your mixing bowl. Blend until creamy.
Add the powdered sugar and meringue powder and continue mixing until the mixture is creamy and forms stiff peaks.
Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. You could also use a star tip if you want more texture.
Pipe a small amount of the cream cheese mixture onto a piece of parchment paper, forming a candy kiss.
Let the cinnamon kisses set at room temperature for approximately an hour. Transfer to the refrigerator for an hour.
Remove the kisses from the refrigerator and carefully transfer them to a bowl or jar.
Store these little candy kisses in the refrigerator for a week or in the freezer for up to a month.
Place them in a glass coffee mug or pretty glass jar, attach a ribbon and tag for a tasty and beautiful gift for your Valentine!
Do you have a favorite edible gift you give for Valentine’s Day or other holidays? I think these are a fun alternative to store bought candies, cookies, or other sweet treats.
