There’s less than a week left until Valentine’s Day! It can be a really corny holiday but hey, there’s never anything wrong with chocolate and gifts (even if they’re gifts from yourself). The past few recipes I’ve posted lately are perfect Valentine’s Day treats but I’ve also posted a few recipes in the past that would make your special someone very happy. Unfortunately my boyfriend won’t be home for Valentine’s Day (we already celebrated) but with all these desserts I’ve made recently, it’s been V-day everyday. Do you have any fun plans?

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Swirled White Chocolate Raspberry Tart

Double Chocolate Cupcakes

Whole Wheat Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce
Chocolate Stuffed Red Velvet Cupcakes

Chocolate Souffles for Two

Chocolate Chip Pizza Cookies

      Thanks for pointing that out! It was a typo – should be fixed now 🙂

    For this couple, we’ve decided on making either the Chocolate Chip Pizza Cookies or the Chocolate Souffles. Our plans aren’t usually extravagant, we like to pick a place special to us. We reserve our fancy dinner out for our anniversary instead!

      Can’t go wrong with either of those recipes! That’s a good idea – that way you don’t have to deal with the Valentine’s fancy restaurant crowds. Enjoy the holiday at your special place 🙂
