I'm a big old, softy, love-loving, romantic, cheesy, cliche'd girly girl.
It is who I am.
So, I adore Valentine's Day, but had honestly never truly celebrated it until last year (the first time Michael and I had ever been together, in the same state, on Valentine's). And it was wonderful! Now, I understand that a lot of people aren't that into it. I understand that Michael, and most other people, think it's a fake holiday. I don't care. I don't even need a lot. Just a smidgen bit of romance and specialness, nothing big. This year we're going to celebrate on the 17th, so we're both off work, and we're going to go see Warm Bodies and catch dinner in the city. I'm pretty darn excited :) I'll probably also make some sort of yummy dessert, but then again, what else is new? Making dinner isn't especially...special...since I do it all the time. But for all of you who are making the (super awesome) decision to treat your beloved with homemade food, you have come to the right place!
Last year I shared some ideas to make for the entire day, but since I have a much larger recipe index to choose from this year, I'm sharing some of my favorite ideas for Valentine's Day desserts:
(Left to right, top to bottom)
Boozy Brownies (use your hunny's fave liquor!)
Candy Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies (use Valentine's candy or your sweetie's fave!)
2 Ingredient, No Ice Cream Maker, Ice Cream (Whatever flavor you like!)
