valentine’s day dessert ideas

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be that day made only for lovers or commercial retailers. At its core, it’s a holiday that is a nice (and fun!) reminder to hold tightly on to those incredible people in our lives that make this journey through life all the worthwhile. Close family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and lovers all contribute to our daily happiness and personal fulfillment.

As silly-seeming as Valentine’s Day may appear, take the opportunity to enjoy it with those you love this year. It doesn’t have to be extravagant or romantic or anything really, so long as you remember to place some gratitude in the hands of those who make you smile. And obviously, use it as a day to indulge!

I’m a sweets person year around, but like to take holidays like this as an opportunity to stretch my baking repertoire with new and interesting recipes. So if you’re looking for something sweet to make this weekend, here are some Valentine’s Day dessert ideas or anytime dessert ideas really.

Have a lovely weekend friends!
