Must Have Desserts This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whether you hate it or love it, dessert is the most important part of the day for everyone. Whether you want to make something filled with chocolate to share with your loved one, or need something to comfort you while you drown your sorrows in the most recent Nicholas Sparks movie, there are plenty of options out there. Even if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, these delectable treats can be made all year round. So bring out your cooking skills and enjoy these wonderful desserts.

1. Chocolate Covered Strawberries– This is the classic Valentine’s Day treat you see in all the romantic movies and advertisements. I have not met anyone (besides myself) who does not get ecstatic over chocolate covered strawberries. So if you are looking for the perfect treat for a romantic evening, chocolate covered strawberries are definitely your best option. All men (except my bf) please take note and make these for your lady, she will be overly pleased with your gesture.

2. Ultimate Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Sundae– If you looked at this picture and did not immediately click the link to find the recipe, we can no longer be friends. Having an Anti-Valentine’s Day Party? These brownies would be excellent to share among a group of girls wanting some chocolate to soothe their aching mind or lonely heart. Also these brownies would be amazing every other day of the year as well, but you may have to hit the gym if you decide to go that route.

3. Oreo Truffles – If you have not had these before, stop all that you are doing and make them right now. Seriously, they are so easy and amazing. I have made them for my family’s Christmas party for the past two years and they are always the first dessert to go. This is a great alternate option to chocolate covered strawberries if you aren’t into the whole strawberry thing but want some small chocolate bites to eat.

4. Red Velvet Whoopie Pies – If you are looking for something that does not have chocolate but is Valentine’s Day themed, this is your best option. They look delicious and would be cute to bring to a Valentine’s Day party to share. If you are feeling ambitious, you can even make them in cute little heart shapes.

7. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups– I’m not sure if it is even possible to not like peanut butter cups. Chocolate and peanut butter mixed together? Delicious.

10. Chocolate Covered Bacon Bites– Looking to impress your man this Valentine’s Day? Make him these and he will instantly fall in love with you, guaranteed. But not really, please don’t sue me. If your man does not fall in love with you after you make these for him, he is probably psychotic and you should break up with him, you’re welcome for me helping you discover this early on.
