14 Favorite Valentine’s Day Desserts

It’s no secret that I love baking, basically everything and anything sweet, so Valentine’s Day is one of my favorites (any excuse to bake … and cover things in pink frosting and sprinkles is a great holiday indeed.) These are a few of my favorite recipes (some I’ve made over and over again, and some I can’t wait to try … either way, they’re all awesome).


Meet the cutest Striped Strawberry Champagne Cake on the block. The ombré fondant stripes were actually made using a mixer’s pasta making attachment; how cool is that? (via Brit + Co.)


Cuteness overload. Loving these Valentine’s Day S’more Hearts with homemade marshmallows and graham crackers. (via Kelly Bakes)


I have had homemade pop tarts on the top of my baking list, and heart-shaped pop tarts, well that’s just brilliant. Plus, these use a shortcut (of the pre-made pie crust variety), so they’re extra simple to throw together. (via Style Within Reach)


Classic and subtly sweet, these flaky, buttery, fruity Raspberry Palmiers only look complicated (hint: they are actually surprisingly easy to make). Serve with ice cream, tea, or coffee and your sweetie will adore you. (via Palachinka)


Adorably sweet heart-shaped Brownies with Raspberry Buttercream filling. (via A Farmgirl’s Dabbles)

Every single thing about this Strawberry Nutella Cheesecake sounds good. (via Gimme Some Oven)


My hubby will always love a classic Sugar Cookie with Cream Cheese Frosting, so these are the perfect Valentine’s Day sweet in our house. (via Kristine’s Kitchen)

Any favorite Valentine’s Day recipes?



  1. Wow! These all look amazing. All I can think of at not-even-10 am are these sweets. Too bad my sugar detox will keep me away from Valentine’s Day goodies. Okay, maybe the nutella strawberries can make the list. And those red velvet waffles!

    Love these! My mouth is officially watering right now.

    Also, am I the only insane person who is addicted to candy hearts?

      Ah ditto! And I’m more of a candy corn kinda girl myself. #addicted

    Oh my goodness! They all look amazing! My husband and I make red velvet cupcakes together every valentine’s day. When we got married we wanted a tradition we could do every year, regardless of our income.
