Here at Southern Living, we are big believers in showing love through cooking. We are also big fans of chocolate, which might be why we list Valentines Day along with Thanksgiving and Christmas as one of our favorite food holidays.
If you’re still scrambling for Valentines dessert ideas, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re looking to impress a special someone, share something sweet with your girls, or treat yourself (no judgement!), here are our favorite picks.
For Your Sweetie
Let’s face it. There’s already enough added societal pressure on Valentines Day, so we understand if you aren’t looking to take a gamble on the pièce de résistance of the evening. We added chopped pecans to classic Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries for an easy-to-make, slam dunk that will still show you care.
For Your Girlfriends (or Yourself)
Go ahead. Turn on Bridesmaids and share a plate of these Mississippi Mud Brownies. You’ll probably have just as much (if not more) fun than your coupled-up friends.
For Your Little Loves
Whether they need a last minute treat to share with the class or you want to show them a little extra love after school, these Chocolate Chubbies are made with pantry staples and a guaranteed crowdpleaser
