All holidays come with their own treats and goodies at the stores for people, recipes to try, and favorite dishes to eat. However, the best dishes are found Valentine’s Day. Known as a day of love, desserts are everywhere this holiday. Chocolates fill the aisles and come in fun shapes filled with different flavors to compliment the creamy chocolate coating. There are boxes of treats for kids to share with classmates, chocolate melts to cover fruit or melted in fondue pots, and even heart shaped sprinkles if you want to make your own cake. Not to mention the beautiful purple, red, and varying shades of pink that come with the holiday.
There are so many ways to celebrate this holiday with treats that it’s no surprise there are countless recipes to choose from! Take a break from boxes of chocolate this year and try out these recipes to share with your significant other, family, or friends:
Cupid’s Hot Chocolate – Sugar, white chocolate, strawberry milk, and whipped cream make this great hot cocoa. Add food coloring for an extra splash of pink.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries – The ever-classic dessert – strawberries covered in chocolate. You can use white chocolate, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate. This dish can be drizzled in more chocolate, covered in sprinkles, or both. You can substitute coconut oil for butter.
Marshmallow Pops – chocolate covered marshmallows on skewers make this easy but delicious treat.
Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie Hearts – These delicious heart shaped brownies are swirled with cheesecake batter and cooked to perfection. Perfect chocolate treat to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Crisp Hearts – Simple desserts made from tortilla’s cut out into heart shapes. White sugar, cinnamon, tortillas and butter make these easy crisps in the oven. Pair it with a fruit salsa or fruit dip!
These recipes are just a small number of creative ideas that break through the usual box of chocolates or roses as a gift. Don’t want to make them by yourself or looking for a romantic way to spend Valentine’s Day without going out of the house? Spend the evening with your significant other and make one (or all) of these delicious desserts together! You can laugh while baking and afterwards enjoy the reward of your hard work.
