Valentine's Day is right around the corner and we've got some great treat ideas to help you share the love!
Kids love these easy to make ice cream floats. Grownups will too, especially with a shot of vanilla vodka!
My husband was a big fan of Flaky Puffs, which were puff pastry with a
creamy filling and a layer of jam. I love a challenge, so I recreated them for him.
Tender chocolate cupcakes topped with a dreamy chocolate frosting.
Delicious as is or you can coat these in chocolate to make them extra special.
These little muffins are the perfect lunch box treat, they taste like chocolate covered cherries!
Eclairs are my absolute favorite sweet treat. Beautiful choux dough, delicious pastry cream, and decadent chocolate on top.
If you've never had chocolate and cinnamon together you're in for a real treat!
Did you know that chocolate cake wasn't even a thing until 1847? I love that this cake isn't overly sweet, so it balances nicely with the frosting.
Start Valentine's day off in a chocolately way! These are great full size or as minis.
These start with a cookie mix and are topped with a caramel filled chocolate candy. You can use the heart shaped ones to make them even more festive.
All of the flavors of the classic dipped strawberry in donut form!
This is consistently one of the most viewed recipes on the site. You can bake it in heart shaped pans, you can pipe on decorations, it's great topped with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
Speaking of chocolate sauce, this is my go to recipe. It comes together fast and is great on ice cream or directly from the jar by the spoonful.
Scones are often overlooked but they are so simple to make and so good! These are loaded with chocolate chips and go perfectly with your morning coffee or tea.
Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly
looking for ways to put a new spin on them. They can be molded into little bowls for ice cream or rolled into "fauxnoli" and filled with cream.
Blondies are so often passed by for their chocolate counterpart brownies, but I promise you won't regret giving these chocolate cherry delights a try!
Shown all dressed up for Christmas, it's easy to make over these decadent cookie tarts into a sweetheart of a treat! You can use red, white and pink sprinkles or just leave them off altogether.
Dark chocolate kisses and cherry studded cookies are a match made in heaven!
This recipe makes a 6" cheesecake, which is the perfect size for 2! Top it with strawberries, raspberries or just drizzle it with chocolate sauce.
Absolutely wonderful on their own, these brownies are always my go-to "I need chocolate!" dessert! They make a fantastic base for ice cream sundaes too.
If there's any day that you should start the day with chocolate, it's Valentine's Day! They are a great dessert option too, topped with some ice cream or whipped cream and chocolate curls.
Another super simple recipe that starts with a mix. We like these even more than the traditional crackle cookies!
Super fast and easily customizable using different flavor cake mixes and baking chips. Definitely well named!
This is my hands down favorite pie, but it's particularly well suited for Valentine's day.
Take the classic to a whole new level with coffee enhanced cake, pudding and a frosting that is so awesome I could just eat it off the spoon!
This is a fun one to make with the kids. You can use any cake mix flavors you like but Chocolate Fudge and Strawberry are perfect for Valentine's day!
The options are nearly endless with all the new flavors of Oreos and M&Ms out there now!
Start Valentine's day off right with this amazing french toast!
The blondies on their own are enough to make you smile, but turning them into individual trifles will make you swoon!
Swap out the star for the heart in your Linzer cutter and pack these cookies with chocolate some strawberry jam.
Sure, you could leave the bacon out of these, but why would you want to?
Take strawberry shortcake to the next level by using these biscuits as the base. Also great with cherries or blueberries or blackberries!
