Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Sweets

February 7, 2012

Valentine’s Day is only a week away. February 14th is a day when we can indulge in over-sized novelty heart shaped boxes full of chocolate without guilt, and everything seems to be turned into red-velvet. I myself am not a fan of red velvet cake, and have never made one. Chocolate, however, I understand.

Over the years I have made several Valentine’s Day desserts. Whether your single, in a relationship, or just want to share some love with your girlfriends (check out this Valentine’s Day in Girly Soiree by The Glitter Guide). These February 14th treats are perfect for satisfying your holiday-induced sweet tooth. I am making something for this year, but will share that recipe next week. For now, these recipes are sure to please.

These cupcakes have always gotten a lot of attention around Valentine’s Day. Decadent Devil’s Food Cake with smooth buttercream topped with fondant hearts // Recipe Here

Chocolate Cupakes with Whipped Vanilla Buttercream. ‘Send’ Some love today with these little stationery inspired cupcakes // Recipe Here

A smaller, bite-sized version of the larger cupcakes. Like a small bunch of carnations, these are great for bringing to the office, lunchroom or school // Recipe here

A secret ingredient makes these Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies perfect for dunking. Even better the next day. Wrap them up in a pretty cellophane bag, or treat box for sharing // Recipe Here

Looking for something truly decadent? Try these rich, silky smooth, sinful Dark Chocolate Cupcakes. The frosting is run-through-your-teeth smooth. Top with Valentine’s sprinkles or fondant hearts // Recipe Here

Creamy and indulgent, this Coffee Ice Cream is a dreamy apres-dinner dessert to cool the senses. Add some hot espresso and make an Affogato for a more sophisticated dessert // Recipe Here

Fill a heart shaped tin with these rich individually wrapped Chocolate Honey Truffles for someone special. Make ahead and keep in the fridge for easy distribution // Recipe Here

A Valentine’s Day staple. A truly simple no bake dessert that is the epitome of love. Chocolate enrobed strawberries, dipped and drizzled in chocolate, nuts and coconut. Best served the same day. Make in the morning, enjoy at night // Recipe Here & Step by Step Instructions Here

Try a recipe and share some love&chocolate with a loved one for Valentine’s Day this year.

    Cute cupcakes Alicia. I made my Valentine’s cupcakes yesterday. Chocolate with cream cheese icing & little heart sprinkes. We are having an Adult Valentine’s fun night, next week. I am planning to make crepes filled with cottage cheese filling, topped with strawberries & sour cream for my hubby for Valentine’s dinner. I am also going to have steak for him & hopefully I can find some lobster in our only grocery store for me, here too! Sucks to live in a small town. Have a great Valentine’s with your sweetie!
