How to Make Your Love Bug Treats

steps to making the valentines day cookies
  1. Roll fondant to about 1/8″ thick
  2. Use heart shape cutter to cut hearts into the fondant
  3. Use food marker to make lady bug dots on the hearts
  4. Apply decorator gel to the backs of the hearts and place on top of Oreo(this is your glue!)
  5. Use the decorator gel to set eyeballs into place

Make as many as you want! A little bit of fondant goes a long way. I wanted to keep things simple by picking up some red fondant at the store. If you’d rather make your own fondant, give this recipe a try.
