Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Sure, it’s a made-up holiday of absolutely no significance — but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the best way possible… with dessert!
As far as celebrating Valentine’s Day goes, we ignore the romantic couple’s holiday side of things. But I’m rediscovering a love for the holiday now that I have two little kids. Preschool Valentine’s cards and bite-sized treats and cookies to bring into class? Count me in!
Even if you’re not into the romantic mushy side of Valentine’s Day (and I am definitely not), there is never a bad time for cake, cookies, or other sweet treats! Bake up some of these pink and red, or decadent and indulgent chocolate options, to share with family, friends, and neighbors.
There’s a little bit of everything in this collection of Valentine’s Day desserts!
