Valentine Sweets for your Sweet
Valentine’s Day is hands down my MOST favorite holiday of the WHOLE year.
I know, I know… people think it’s nonsense, it’s a “Hallmark Holiday…” but I love, Love, LOVE it!
When I was a kid, making that Valentine’s box and addressing all of those Valentines for my classmates, 
As I got older, picking out Valentine’s for (boy)friends …haha … can you say BRUT cologne from the drug store?
Later helping my kids do all of the same things, and baking sweet desserts for them and for my friends at my annual Valentine luncheon.
Over the last couple of years, I have made some really yummy treats, and I have compiled them here for you.
A whole bunch of Valentine Worthy sweets for your sweets, whomever they may be!

Valentine Desserts Made With Love

Planning something special for your Valentine? Here are some of my favorite Valentine’s Day dessert ideas. Since I originally created this post in 2014, I have added a lot of new recipes. As I said, I love Valentine’s Day!

I know some folks don’t like Valentine’s Day. They complain about it being a “Hallmark” holiday. As if it was just invented to sell more cards and wrapping paper. But the sentiments are genuine. 

Since when is showing love, sharing love, being in love ever a bad thing?

A truffle is chocolate’s way of saying “I Love You”. The perfect combination of sweet, creamy, and delicious in a size that is easy to share. (And much easier to share than peeling a grape)
