With Valentine’s Day coming up, you might be thinking about making a special treat for your sweetheart. I’ve rounded up 14 of my favourite, indulgent – some healthy, but delicious – treats and desserts that you could share this February 14th without the guilt of over-indulging. Since Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday, you have the whole weekend to prep and make these delicious treats.
Adam and I have our usual valentine tradition – sushi ordered in while watching Valentine’s Day, the movie. When Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday, this is the ideal celebration. Honestly, even on a Friday or Saturday this is a pretty good situation, since we’re not the ‘going out’ type. This year we’re actually going away for the weekend with four of our friends, but sushi may still be in the cards for Sunday night.
Whether there’s two of you – or four, these Valentine’s Day desserts are sure to please everyone.
Here’s 14 Valentine’s Day recipes to suit your fancy (or un-fancy) plans.
A decadent, yet light, cake topped with coconut cream and sliced strawberries – small enough for two to share guilt-free.
definitely on the indulgent side, these brownies are made with chocolate stout, topped with a stout buttercream and finished with vanilla beer brittle. your man (and you) will love these.
simple, yet decadent, these raw vegan chocolate turtles are easy enough to whip up before your valentine comes over for a healthy after-dinner nibble
don’t be fooled by how healthy they look, these are so, so good – you’d think they were bad for you.
