Behold the difference between drizzling (above)

This is such an educational blog.
A great can filler would be these delicious Chocolate Raspberry (yes Shannan, raspberry) Cookies. It's a Paula Deen recipe, ya'll. Get it here. It's got two sticks of butta!
What do you do when you totally thought you had a small heart shaped cookie cutter, and you find out that you don't?
You talk yourself into thinking that it's totally ok to have round shortbread cookies on Valentine's Day.
They do NOT look like Ritz crackers....stop saying that.
These cookies are incredibly, unbelievably good.
Besides, round cookies fit the can better, so there.
After baking them, I cloaked them in chocolate.
That's right. I said cloaked.
You can find the recipe for this at Epicurious.com.
I found these very quick and easy to make.
I filled my can very simply, just using tissue paper, and putting the cookies in cellophane bags. I had a really long 'to do list' today and I didn't have the mental energy to do something more creative, but I'm sure you'll come up with something much better.
You might want to hand your Valentine this card.
I'm sure it'd go over super great.
This one is especially popular this year.
