Valentine’s Day Desserts

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, so I thought it was high-time to start thinking about sweets for your sweetie. While many couples go out for Valentine’s Day, it seems that a vast majority prefer to enjoy a home-cooked meal in instead. Which means homemade dessert! Right up my alley :)

I have included over 35 of my favorite sweets and desserts that I think are especially fitting for celebrating Valentine’s Day. Nothin’ says lovin’ like some sweets baked from your heart. Whether you celebrate with a significant other, your kids, friends or family, these treats will certainly be appreciated!
