Galentine’s Night In

By: Morgan Oncley

Whether you have a valentine or not, sometimes Valentine’s Day is best spent with your best gals. Personally, I am a firm believer in the idea that you should show love, appreciation and gratitude for your partner all the time, not only for Valentine’s Day or birthdays. Because of this, whenever Valentine’s rolls around, you can find me at home with my friends.

Thinking you also want to give the Galentine’s Night In a go this year? You should! Not exactly sure where to start or what to do? Don’t worry, as always, we’ve got you covered. And as always, change up whatever you want to have these ideas fit into your Galentine’s; this night is for you and your best friends!

A few things I love to have at any holiday get together are the following: a gift for the guests, a CBD infused snack, and some sort of activity to keep the evening moving. Here’s what I’m putting together for my galentine’s night in…

Gifts for your Valentines

No need to go overboard by any means, just throw together a little something for your ladies. Even though you’re the hostess, they’re technically your Valentine’s and every Valentine deserves a little something.

This year my theme for the gift was self care, so I wanted to get something that encouraged my friends to stop and take a moment for themselves. I grabbed the CBD immunity bath bomb, pre-98 bubba kush hemp joint, matches and some heart shaped glasses just for fun! I found some red bins and gift packaging at the dollar store and then threw everything together.

CBD Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

One of my favorite go to recipes for having a small group of friends over. It’s so easy and is always a hit! I know you can buy plain chocolate dipped pretzels, but what’s the fun in that? These are perfect to have for snacking on while everyone catches up and says their hellos.

The thing I really love about this snack is that you can alter and cater it to what you like. Dark chocolate and crushed nuts is a wonderful combination, so is milk chocolate with toffee bits. This year I opted for a white chocolate dipped pretzel with a red sprinkle decoration to keep the snack festive for Valentine’s Day.

Everything you’ll need:

  • Pretzels (any kind works, I use Rold Gold Tiny Twists).

  • Ghirardelli melting chocolate (milk, dark, or white).

  • 1 tbsp BARE CBD tincture.

  • Optional: sprinkles, crushed nuts, peppermint, etc.

Directions:

1. Melt chocolate as directed on package.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of the BARE tincture to the melted chocolate, mix well.

3. Dip half the pretzel into melted chocolate, rest on plate to harden.

4. Optional: If you are adding a topping to the pretzel, be sure to add it before the chocolate sets + hardens.

Cupcake + Cookie Decorating

What’s a girls night without an activity? And dessert? Combine the two! Grab a box of cupcake mix (I opted for funfetti this year!), some premade sugar cookies, a few icing options and some sprinkles for decorating.

You can also incorporate more CBD here, which is something I always love to do. If you want to pre mix the CBD into any icing, just make sure to label it accordingly. Another option is leaving the BARE tincture out for your friends to add as they want. Personally, I plan to leave the tincture out for people to add as they want.

Now just don’t forget to order some pizzas, and you are all set!
