Sweet Treats


Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I know Valentine’s Day gets a lot of grief for being a “Hallmark” holiday, but I really love it. I am a big fan of chocolate, hearts, candy, pink and red, lace, handwritten cards, and love in general any time of year…so what’s not to enjoy about February 14th? :)

I’ve always loved celebrating Valentine’s Day with sweet treats, whether it be trading conversation heart candies in elementary school, making pink-frosted cookies for my friends in high school, or enjoying the delicious red velvet cupcakes that my boyfriend and I made over the weekend (pictured above)…they’re my favorite! So in honor of Valentine’s Day, here is a roundup of some mouthwatering, beautiful treats that would be perfect for this special day.

However you celebrate Valentine’s Day, whether it be with a significant other, friends, or family, I hope you enjoy a day full of love… and chocolate. :)
