The Best Valentine’s Day Recipes

Listen, I know Valentine’s Day is all about “love” and celebrating all things mushy with your hunny. But do you know what Valentine’s Day is also about? CHOCOLATE. That is what. We broke this all down into 3 quintessentially Valentine’s Day categories: All Things Chocolate, Perfectly Portioned for Two, and Red Velvet. Let’s get down to holiday baking for Valentine’s day.

What are the characteristics of a perfect valentine’s day recipe?

  • Easy to make: Valentine’s Day desserts shouldn’t be too fussy. We love a one bowl wonder, no chill time, and generally easy desserts to throw together.
  • Festive: I’m all about celebrating the little things with sweet treats the reflect the occasion. Whether that’s heart shaped, red velvet, pink frosted, or SUPER chocolatey, your Valentine’s Day desserts should be on brand for the holiday.
  • Chocolatey: Now I won’t judge you if you want to decorate some sugar cookies, but in this house, Valentine’s Day means all things chocolate, so you’ll find most of these recipes fall under that flavor. What can I say? Chocolate is my love language.

So we split it into categories for all your Valentine’s Day needs. Whether your whipping up sweet treats to mail out to your Galentines, looking for an indulgent and rich dessert to share with the family, or treating you and your hunny to a loved up dessert for two, we’ve gotcha covered.
