Sweets For Your Sweetie

Valentine's Day is going to be pretty lax this year. My husband is going out of town this weekend for a seminar. (Seriously, who holds a seminar over V-Day weekend? Someone disgruntled maybe.) So it's just me and the kiddos. I usually bake him his choice of dessert for the big day, but without a little time to myself, he may just get a smooch on the cheek at the airport.

For those of you who are actually celebrating, here are a few of my favorite Valentine's Day sweets. Click on the links below to find the recipes.

Valentine's Treats

1. Chocolate Valentino - A rich, decadent, flourless chocolate cake.
2. Red Velvet Mini Cupcakes - You know about the lusciousness of red velvet, I'm sure.
3. Brownie Bottom Cheesecake - My hub's favorite cheesecake. One of mine, too.
4. Cinn-a-bun Cheesecake - A cinnamon roll dressed up as a cheesecake. You can't go wrong.
5. Tuile Cookies - Fun little cookies that you mold while they're still hot. You can even make fortune cookies out of them!
6. White Chocolate Pretzel Buttons - A fun little snack your kids can help out with!

Happy Love Day!

  1. Oooh, those white chocolate pretzel buttons are adorable...and that Cinn-a-bun cheesecake looks DIVINE!

  2. Mmmmm Cinn-a-bun cheesecake!! I will for certain be making that in the very near future ... well as soon as I go out and buy a springform pan anyways!

  3. I want to make fortune cookies using the Tuile recipe! Sounds fun!

  4. For some reason I couldn't wrap my brain around how to make a fortune cookie (lack of sleep maybe...), so I don't have any examples in that post, but Our Best Bites just posted a cute tutorial and she even dipped them halfway in chocolate!

  5. Ooooh, thanks so much for that Fortune Cookie link!! I have been wanting to make some for ages!!
