The only Valentines day recipe you’ll need
At 99th monkey, we are nuts about love! What better way than showing the ones around us we love them, by making delicious, sweet treats just for them. With Valentine's day creeping up on us we have been testing some tasty, fun treats to share with you all (someone has to do it!) We think we have found the perfect little creation that you and your loved ones are guaranteed to adore. These adorable nut butter topped kiss cookies, sprinkled with love are the perfect sweet treat.
All of our favourite things combined into a bite sized, irresistible treat. We’ve taken the classic kiss cookies, and made them our own 99th style! Basically, dreamy vanilla cookies topped with our creamy almond cacao nut butter and paired with some berries and icing sugar for good measure.
The one thing that anyone is sure to love, is a sweet little homemade dessert, made with love from the heart. When it comes to dessert it can be easy to get a little carried away and overwhelmed by extravagant, layered, multi part desserts to try and impress. However, you’ll soon see you can skip all of that! Whip up a batch of our almond cacao kiss cookies and we promise they will bring joy to the ones lucky enough to receive them on Valentines Day!
