Valentine’s Day is the day to indulge. If you’ve been on the healthy train since New Year’s, then you’re likely craving something oh so delicious, am I right? It’s time to nix the guilt and enjoy a show-stopping Valentine’s Day dessert. Go big or go home. You’ll feel more satisfied than eating lots of little treats. Make it a night, pour yourself a glass of wine (or a strawberries & champagne margarita), turn on some music, and bake the night away for you and your loved one. Or your kids because if you’re like me, your toddler has fully figured out how amazing desserts are and she can’t be stopped. Like mother like daughter.
My jaw hit the floor when I saw this skillet cookie stunner from The Modern Proper. If you don’t follow her gorgeous site, allow me to introduce you! First up, her Salty Dark and Milk Chocolate Skillet Cookie! And that blush pink skillet is just perfect for the day of love!
If you’re a true chocoholic, then rejoice! Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Valentines Hearts. Oh have mercy, because this looks like actual heaven to me. I love the sweet little designs and words on top. My daughter would love helping me decorate these!
Something about raspberry combined with chocolate just does it for me. Plus, napoleons are one of my favorite desserts, so I am definitely going to try Tutti Dolci’s Raspberry Chocolate Cream Napoleons! Don’t they look like little works of art?
If strawberries are more your style, then just LOOK at this gorgeous stunner of a cake from my friend Maria of Two Peas & Their Pod. She was saying she hasn’t ever been great at layer cakes, but I beg to differ! This Strawberry Chocolate Cake looks AMAZING. It would make the most perfect Valentine’s Day dessert.
Red velvet lovers, REJOICE. How adorable are these marbled red velvet cheesecake brownies from my sweet friend Jessica of The Novice Chef?! I LOVE that you can use cookie cutters to make heart shapes and gift them to your sweetie. Or just eat them yourself while sipping champagne, whatever works.
If ooey gooey cinnamon rolls are more your speed, here you go! How amazing do these look? My daughter would adore waking up to these on Valentine’s Day so I think I know what I’ll be making! Cinnamon rolls may not be a traditional “dessert” but I’ll tell you this, I’d choose cinnamon roll every time if I saw it on a dessert menu!
One thing is for sure, I can’t leave pie off any dessert list. I LOVE pie. So does my husband. In fact, I think he’d actually choose pie over cake if given the option. This Strawberry Balsamic Slab Pie from Butter & Brioche looks easy to make (key!) and the little hearts make it perfect for Valentine’s Day!
