Love is in the air, alright… With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, it’s time for one thing and one thing only: Chocolate! Okay, chocolate and all of your other favorite sweet treats! Whether you’re single or happily committed, why not use this holiday to your advantage and make something special?
We’ve got a ton of fabulous dessert recipes for Valentine’s Day (if you haven’t checked out our latest free eCookbook, you should), but sometimes too many recipes to choose from can be overwhelming. So, I rounded up our Test Kitchen team and we selected our five very favorite recipes that you simply must try this year.
Valentine’s Day Cupcakes
Talk about “Quick & Easy!” These cupcakes are made with a boxed cake mix, but don’t they look so adorably festive?
Something Rich & Chocolate-y
Everyone loves chocolate and peanut butter, right? This poke-style cake is sure to fulfill your chocolate-fantasies.
Creamy Chocolate Mousse
Rich and creamy chocolate mousse is a must for a romantic evening.
Valentine’s Day Cookies
I mean, I love a dozen roses and all…but I’m pretty sure I’d rather receive a dozen of these!
The 5-Minute Wonder
That’s right - just 5 minutes or prep time and you’re on your way to a light and dreamy dessert.
Plus, we’ve got to add just one more bonus idea for Valentine’s Day… We asked our Facebook fans what they prefer for Valentine’s Day: Chocolate-Covered Strawberries, or Red Velvet Cake…and the strawberries won! Learn how to make them here.
