Each fortune cookie is made from a Fruit Roll-Up with a personalized note inside — perfect for kids to make and give to friends or for grown-ups to send a special message to the one you love.

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 "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:

  • 1 box Fruit Roll-Ups
  • Permanent marker
  • Parchment paper (Don't use plain paper; it will stick to the Fruit Roll-Up.)
  • 1 (2-inch) round cookie cutter

Directions:

1. Create your message

Write messages with a permanent ink marker on parchment paper.

4. Insert the message

5. Form the fortune cookies
