7 Show-Stopping Valentine’s Day Desserts

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.
