Ten Desserts for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and in my house this romantic holiday has turned into a family event – and I couldn’t be happier. We make a nice dinner, eat together, and I always make a special dessert. I have to say this is a far more enjoyable way to spend the day, or evening (which I have always considered a non-event), than pre-children when my husband and I would feel obligated to brave the masses and try to get a reservation at an overcrowded restaurant.

Dessert on Valentine’s Day doesn’t necessarily mean chocolate (of course it usually does to me), but definitely something special. Here are a few recipes from our website that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day:

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes

Triple Layer Oreo Cake (time consuming but worth it)

Brownie Pie (don’t forget the ice cream or whipped cream topper)

Dark Chocolate Brownies (dressed up with ice cream and hot fudge)

New York-Style Cheesecake with Berries

Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Sour Cream Glaze

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Crazy No-Bowl Chocolate Cake (also known as “Wacky Cake” – kids can make this it’s so easy)

Famous Chocolate Wafer Icebox Cake (no cooking required)

Chocolate Cheesecake with Hints of Orange

Red Velvet Cupcakes
