30+ Valentine's Treats- Share the love!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and we've got some great treat ideas to help you share the love! 

Cupid Floats

 Kids love these easy to make ice cream floats.  Grownups will too, especially with a shot of vanilla vodka!

Copycat Flaky Puffs

 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.

Buttermilk Chocolate Cupcakes

Tender chocolate cupcakes topped with a dreamy chocolate frosting.

Chocolate Caramels

Delicious as is or you can coat these in chocolate to make them extra special.

Cherry Chip Muffins

These little muffins are the perfect lunch box treat, they taste like chocolate covered cherries!

Chocolate Dream Whoopie Pies


Mini Chocolate Eclairs

Eclairs are my absolute favorite sweet treat.  Beautiful choux dough, delicious pastry cream, and decadent chocolate on top.


Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

If you've never had chocolate and cinnamon together you're in for a real treat!

Old Fashioned Fudge Cake

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.

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Start Valentine's day off in a chocolately way! These are great full size or as minis.

Salted Caramel Fudge Drops

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. 

Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Donuts

All of the flavors of the classic dipped strawberry in donut form!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

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.

Quick & Easy 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. 

Chocolate Chip Scones

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.

Strawberry Pizzelles

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. 

Chocolate Cherry Blondies

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!

Truffle Filled Cookie Tarts

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.  

Cherry Kiss Cookies

Dark chocolate kisses and cherry studded cookies are a match made in heaven!  

Very Vanilla Slow Cooker Cheesecake

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.

Chocolate Glazed Brownies 

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. 

Chocolate Fudge Waffles

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.

Brownie Crackles

Another super simple recipe that starts with a mix.  We like these even more than the traditional crackle cookies!

Can’t Leave Alone Bars

Super fast and easily customizable using different flavor cake mixes and baking chips. Definitely well named!

Chocolate Cream Pie

This is my hands down favorite pie, but it's particularly well suited for Valentine's day.

Rich Mocha Poke Cake 

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!

Quick Sandwich Cookies

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!

Loaded M&M Oreo Cookie Bars

The options are nearly endless with all the new flavors of Oreos and M&Ms out there now!


Cashew Crusted French Toast with Cherry Compote 

Start Valentine's day off right with this amazing french toast! 

Salted Caramel Blondie Trifles

The blondies on their own are enough to make you smile, but turning them into individual trifles will make you swoon! 

Chocolate Filled Linzer Cookies

Swap out the star for the heart in your Linzer cutter and pack these cookies with chocolate some strawberry jam. 

Brown Sugar Bacon Palmiers

Sure, you could leave the bacon out of these, but why would you want to?   


Ginger Buttermilk Biscuits

Take strawberry shortcake to the next level by using these biscuits as the base.  Also great with cherries or blueberries or blackberries!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Speedy Shepherd's Pie- Taste of Home 100 Family Meals cookbook

How often does your family eat meals together?  My husband worked second shift for over a decade, and it was a rare occasion for us all to sit down at the same time and eat.    Once he went to a better schedule, mealtime moved back to the table.   This past fall, we bought a house, and in the chaos of moving, we drifted away again.    Son likes to eat in front of the computer or phone, husband in front of the tv.   I'm guilty too, sometimes the jigsaw puzzle I'm working on can render the dining room table unusable for days. Looking for inspiration, I turned to Taste of Home's 100 Family Meals .  As you can see by the number of pages I marked, there's lots to be found! There are suggestions for entire meals, complete with a list of groceries you need.    It's well categorized for easy mixing and matching too.       The first recipe I chose was Speedy Shepherd's Pie.    It's a fun twist on the traditional version, using taco seasoned meat as the base.
