Heart-Shaped Cookies and Milk

Upgrade plain old milk and cookies with this on-target idea from blogger Shelly Jaronsky of CookiesandCups.com. Using a small fondant cutter or paring knife, create a hole in a heart-shaped cookie (you can buy them, or make your own heart-shaped cookies covered in pink icing). Place the cookie on top of a milk glass, then insert a paper straw “arrow” embellished with construction paper fringe.
