Deliver A Small Fortune On Valentine's Day

How about a Valentine's Day snack that's easy to make and even more fun to share? With special messages written and folded inside each one, everyone will feel fortunate to have you for a friend.

Fruit roll up fortune cookie

This is a really simple idea for any mom to make with her children and take to a school's Valentine's Day party, especially now that schools are encouraging parents to get away from sugary cookies and cupcakes. This is a fun, nice "fruit" treat everyone can enjoy.

Fruit Roll-Ups fortune cookie valentines

One Fruit Roll-Up makes one fortune cookie, so a box of 10 Fruit Roll-Ups will make 10 valentines.

Ingredients and supplies:

  • One box of Fruit Roll-Ups
  • Permanent marker
  • Parchment paper (Don't use plain paper; it will stick to the Fruit roll-up.)
  • One 2-inch round cookie cutter



Create your message

Write messages with a permanent ink marker on parchment paper.

1 write messages on tyvek paper strips


Prepare your Fruit Roll-Ups

Unroll one Fruit Roll-Up (any flavor you prefer) and cut into four squares.

3 cut into four squares


Slice with cookie cutters

Stack the four squares on top of each other and cut with 2-inch round cookie cutter.

4 cut with 2 inch circle cutter


Insert the message

Place message in the center of the stacked circles and fold in half, like a taco.

5 insert messages and fold


Form fortune cookies

Grab the corners and crease in the middle, pinching to form the fortune cookie shape. Pinch the shape together in the middle until it sticks and stays folded.

5 bend and fold in the center

Pass them out to your valentines!

How do I keep the fruit roll up from getting hard for a day or two?

I used plastic paper (from a Tyvek envelope.) It's slicker and won't stick. You can also dust a bit of cornstarch around, inside of the circle, before you fold them into fortune cookies. Mine stuck to my plate a bit the first time I made them, but a little bit of cornstarch on the bottoms would have solved that too.

These are soooo cute! My son got one of these at his Valentine's Day party and I loved it! But it stuck together so bad we ripped the fortune before getting it out of the sticky roll up. Any tips for making sure they don't stick to badly?
