Valentine’s Day is 2 days away and there is no better way to show someone special just how much you care, than with baked treats straight from the heart! If you are looking to start the day off just right, these single lady banana chocolate chip pancakes are perfect for both the single lady or the loved up couple (just double the recipe!).
If you are really looking to wow your loved one first thing in the morning, and have a bit more time to spare, check out this Spiced Apple Cream Cheese Danish Braid. Most of the prep work can be done the night before and this danish braid is really worth every minute of prep time!
Toasted coconut shortbread cookies. Do I really need to say more? These are one of my favourite cookies to bake and eat, and your friends will love you too.
Tell your Valentine how you really feel with these personalized sweethearts-inspired conversation heart sugar cookies with royal icing. I’m sure they’ll get the hint 😉
Cheesecake brownie bites are a cute, compact way to spread the love.
Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Meringues are light, airy, chocolatey and absolutely perfect. Great for sharing as well!
If those mini meringues weren’t satisfying enough, how about a strawberry pavlova? This would make for a fabulous, show-stopping dessert to end a romantic meal 🙂
Who doesn’t love a good cream puff? These cream puffs filled with strawberry and mascarpone are richer and a bit more decadent than the usual cream puffs, but so good.
A Valentine’s Day round-up would not be complete without the classic red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. A winning combination!
Just in case you are looking for cake inspiration as well, I thought I would throw in 2 of my favourite cakes ever. This chocolate layer cake with caramel swiss meringue buttercream pictured above, and this chocolate peanut butter torte. Definitely should be shared between more than 2 people 😛
Even if you aren’t celebrating Valentine’s Day, can you really pass up the opportunity to bake something sweet and overindulgent? I know I can’t…xoxo
