Donsuemor Heart Shaped Madeleines For Valentine's Day {review & giveaway}

If you're on the hunt for a delicious, original, and affordable Valentine's Day gift idea, please consider Donsumor Heart Shaped Madeleines. These treats are specially made for the holiday and they are positively yummy. {Believe me. I've tried them.} And don't worry about wrapping them; they come in a beautiful box. You could easily put a bow on it or lay a single rose on it and call it "done". 

What is it about sweets that gets me? I'm not exactly sure. All I know is that a few of these {OK, and maybe some jewelry} would make me pleased as puddin' this Valentine's Day. Fancy, gourmet cookies are certainly the way to my heart. 

I was sent a variety box to review that includes both vanilla and chocolate cookies. These are dipped in chocolate and white chocolate. Yum! I tried the vanilla first and absolutely loved the flavor of it. Then, I made the mistake of telling the hubster he could try some and now I've got to hide away my last few, chocolate cookies. Personally, I think these are best with a cup of coffee but that shouldn't come as a surprise to you. 

These photos should help you get an idea of the actual size of the cookies.

Here's a bit about the variety box taken from the website {there is also a box of all chocolate Madeleines to choose as well}.

This elegant gift box is filled with 16 wrapped heart shaped madeleines. Each package has two hearts. This variety package has both chocolate and vanilla cookies and are hand-dipped in white chocolate or chocolate coating - they promise to surprise and delight! Beautifully presented in our custom designed gold embossed gift box.

And in case you're curious about Donsuemor, as I was, here's some information taken from their "About Us" page. 
Starting with an original French recipe, Don and Susie Morris (Don-Sue-Mor) introduced madeleines to their Berkeley, California "gourmet ghetto" community in 1976. Together, the creative entrepreneur and the passionate baker created a treat unlike any other—a moist little cake with a fresh, unforgettable taste. Donsuemor continues their tradition of baking delicious bakery treats that bring delight to everyday life.
BUY IT: The Donsuemor Heart Shaped Madeleines are available to ship beginning February 1st for $20 a box.
