Galentine’s Day Sweets

Galentine's Day, Valentine's Day, VDay, Valentine's Day Recipe, Dessert, Baking, Recipe

Being snowed in Friday and Saturday meant one thing to us blogger gals…time to be #GIRLBOSSES and get a whole lot of blogging done! We spent all of Friday planning out posts, working on our social media accounts, and coming up with some collaborations. I truly think Friday was my most productive day off of work ever!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner {just a little over two weeks} we decided to collaborate on a few V-Day posts. Kicking it off is this sweets filled post. There’s no better way to spend a day in than baking and hanging out with one of your bests {and future hubby playing taste tester}.

As I stated in my Gift Guide for your BFF, Galentine’s Day has become a real thing. A day to pamper your best gal pals {mom and sister too}. So we whipped up a few treats to make your besties. Mint Oreo truffles from Corbin and red homemade Oreos from yours truly. Can you tell we love Oreos? 🙂 Little Reese Poppy decided to join in on the festivities too – trying to steal a bite here and there.  Find my recipe below and head over to Classy South Blog to get all the details on Corbin’s Mint Oreo truffles.
