I’ve got an assortment of great recipes for Valentine’s Day dessert! When I think “romantic Valentine’s Day dinner” it had better end with chocolate. Fortunately, my family agrees with me. While I choose not to really celebrate the holiday as a couple, I would prefer he surprise me with flowers any other time of the year, we do try to do it up for the kids. We strive to make every holiday feel magical. They are only young once.
The following Valentine’s Day recipes may even carry over a red theme in keeping with the holiday. Either way, whether tinted red or made of chocolate, they are delicious–and as pretty to look at as they are to eat.
Excellent Valentine’s Day Dessert Recipes
Sometimes you just want to go all out. When you have the time and can plan ahead, these are the perfect recipes to make for Valentine’s Day. If you are short on time to prepare a recipe but you still have plenty of time before the evening or special event, look to the dessert dip recipes. They are incredible and very fast to stir. You only need time to chill them.
If you have a little more time, the Red Velvet Brownies are surprisingly moist. We absolutely love these. Or, go for a new classic: the Cherry Chocolate Blossoms. They are one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes. I make them every chance I get.
