Belgian Brownie Cakelets

If your sweetheart is sweet on brownies, these Belgian Brownie Cakelets will knock their socks off. The recipe makes about 12, meaning there’ll be lots of delicious leftovers to enjoy. They’re not difficult to make either -- if you can whisk, you can make these.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

These little beauties are a stand-alone, practically-make-themselves dessert (melted chocolate + strawberries), and are guaranteed to win over that special someone. Find out more here.

Coconut No-Bake Cookies (Vegan)

Nothing says love like, well, coconut? This nine-ingredient dessert (coconut sugar, almond milk, cocoa powder, coconut oil, peanut butter, oats, and coconut) requires no oven to make. These bad boys are a cinch.

Valentine’s Day Bark

Line a baking sheet with wax paper, melt semi sweet chocolate and spread it on the paper in an even layer. Mix in whatever you love to pair with chocolate - sea salt, pretzels, sprinkles, white chocolate, cinnamon hearts, etc. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Check it out.

Easy Vegan Truffles

These 30-minute vegan chocolate truffles are a Valentine’s delight in a decadent dark chocolate shell. The perfect dessert for Valentine's Day, special occasions, or for no reason at all. See more.

Tahini Stuffed Dates

Rose Strawberry Panna cotta

This Panna Cotta is a stunning dessert made without gelatin and is suitable for vegetarians.The recipe is a teensy bit more involved, but will be a delight for your better half. Have a look here.

Fancy Fortune Cookies

For a little Valentine’s Day fun, buy a pack of premade fortune cookies (or make them from scratch if you’re brave), melt your favourite chocolate in the microwave or over a bain marie, dip, spread, or dribble in creative ways, let set in the fridge and voila -- a chocolatey fortune awaits!

Valentine Mini Baked Doughnuts

With a handful of ingredients, 30 minutes, and the willingness to get your hands dirty, these little doughnuts bake up quick and are the perfect Valentine’s Day surprise! Check it out here.
