Sweetheart Jars vs. Sugar Cookies – Valentine’s Day Challenge (POLL!)

Valentines Day is next week and for my husband, that means nothing. Like I've mentioned before, he considers it a commercial holiday. Buzzkill alert! I mean, if there's an entire holiday dedicated to celebrating and acknowledging love, why wouldn't you partake? It's LOVE honey people! So regardless of my robotic spouse, I opt to celebrate and this year I decided to do something nice for my co-workers. But I need help.

I work full-time with a great group of people that love their sweets. I'm not kidding. When a vendor sends treats to our office, the staff picks over them like famished vultures (myself included). Making some sort of V-Day concoction that involved sugar was a no-brainer. So I went to Walmart and bought a festive bag of M&M's® Red Velvets (they scream Feb. 14th), M&M's® Peanut Butter (my favorite), and DOVE® Promises (that I promised I wouldn't eat all by myself).


But this is where I need your help: I have two ideas for the M&M's® and I cant pick which one to do...so I did a test run of them both and I need you guys to pick the winner.

VS.
 M&M's® Red Velvets & DOVE® Promises Sweetheart Sugar Cookies

Both are super easy, which I love and since that's what Valentine's Day is all about, I'm obviously on the right track.

M&M's® Red Velvets & DOVE® Promises Sweetheart Jars
  • I filled small jars with M&M's® Red Velvets and DOVE® Promises.
  • I used cute doilies to cover the top of the jar and secured the doilies with heart ribbon because everything looks cuter with doilies and ribbon.


Why this is good for my co-workers:  Everyone gets their own sweetheart jar that can be reused for whatever they want and it's small enough to keep on or in their desk. Final product:
 

M&M's® Red Velvets & DOVE® Promises Sweetheart Sugar Cookies
  • I used a sugar cookie mix (it's a test run, don't judge me)!
  • I shaped the cookies in envelopes (love letters), X, O, lips, flowers...whatevz.
  • I used the M&M's® Red Velvets & DOVE® Promises to decorate the dough (critical for the festive look) before putting it in the oven.



Why this is good for my co-workers: This group LOVES cookies and if I put them in the break room, they can choose their own cookies (and as many as they want). Final product:

I would just like to add that my mom made me take this picture....you know, moms. lol

So which project do I create next Friday?
