I don’t usually come across as a hopeless romantic. But, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, I enjoy it immensely. The flowers, the cards, presents of affection, and the pinkness of it all! And, last but not least the food, especially the Valentine’s Day desserts. Oh my, especially homemade desserts. It reminded me of that movie line, “You had me at hello.” Well, for me it’s “you had me at dessert”. These recipes are you romantics out there waiting for the special day when you can show that soft side of your heart.
Show your loved ones how much you love them with one of these beautifully sweet Valentine’s Day desserts. We’ve collaborated with several talented cooking bloggers. And, we were overwhelmed with all the wonderful recipes they shared. Because of that, we divided recipes up into separate roundups: desserts (this post), cookies & brownies, and candy (links for the latter two coming soon).
