If you are not a big fan of the traditional Valentines chocolate box, then you are going to SWOON over these Valentine’s Day sugar cookies in a chocolate box!
I myself always prefer Valentine’s Day sugar cookies over chocolate so this was a no brainer. Plus, anytime you can make sugar cookies into another food, they are so dang cute!
I love putting them in my kids little Valentines hearts or on our Valentines charcuterie board and serve it up with Valentine’s mocktails.
I could have done these Valentine’s Day sugar cookies in chocolates or roses but I couldn’t resist making more cookies into food.
With my talented friend Shanan over at Enchanted Cookie Boutique, I’ve enjoyed lots of food cookies. These charcuterie and cheeseboard cookies were my favorite!

We’ve also done lobsters and lemons for our lobster boil party and milk glasses for a cookies and milk party. Our 4th of July backyard bash even featured edible cookie snow cones. The kids loved those…
The holidays are always accompanied with more sugar cookies that look like food. We had pancake stacks with butter and syrup for our flannel and flapjacks Christmas party.
Then we had gingerbread men and house sugar cookies for my daughters gingerbread decorating party. They were a hit!
To make this fun, DIY Valentine’s Day sugar cookies chocolate box you only need three things. Can you believe it? Just THREE things!
The first is a heart shaped Valentines chocolate box. I got one large one and one small one. The large one is for big daddy and I to enjoy while watching some sappy romantic movie that I can only talk him into watching once a year.
The little ones are for the kids. I love giving each their own with just the right amount of sweetness. They love them with some vegan chocolate sauce drizzled dessert nachos and some Valentines mocktails.
HOW MANY COOKIES DOES EACH SIZE BOX HOLD?
A small 2 oz. heart box holds three to four candy cups with mini Valentines day sugar cookies. The large 1 lb. heart box holds roughly twelve to fourteen.
Next, you are going to need little brown paper candy cups. The small candy size ones work best.
You can get white ones too if you prefer but I love the classic chocolate box look of brown.
WHERE CAN I GET THE PAPER CANDY CUPS?
I got my brown paper cups on Amazon. A 200 pack was only $4 so definitely a good deal. The white candy cups were a bit more for less but either work great.
The last of the three things you are going to need are Valentine’s Day sugar cookies! For this DIY project, you are going to want mini cookies, not full size.
I love getting mine from my dear friend Shanan at Enchanted Cookie Boutique. They are always absolutely gorgeous AND so delicious! She ships nationwide so you can place your order and get them delivered right to your front door.
If you’d like to go the extra mile, you could always make your own gluten-free sugar cookies. We have a tasty and soft gluten-free sugar cookie recipe or red hot sugar cookies that have a bit of a cinnamon twist.
Be sure to do some cookies frosted with “milk” chocolate or light brown frosting and some with “dark” chocolate or dark brown frosting. Add a little white heart here and there and some squiggle lines for chocolate decor.
I also like to do circles, rectangles and squares. You could get really creative and make some pink bon bon type chocolates (those are my favorite at one of America’s favorite candy stores).
No matter how you choose to decorate your Valentine’s Day sugar cookies, your recipient is going to love the gesture!
WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DECORATE SUGAR COOKIES?
There are lots of great frosting tutorials online but I like this one from Our Best Bites. And here is one with a video tutorial from Life Love Sugar.
We hope you love this Valentine’s Day sugar cookies DIY chocolate box. It is so fun to give to your sweetheart.
I hope you all have the happiest Valentine’s Day!
