The Friday Five: Valentine’s Day Treats

One of the things that I like about Valentine’s Day is that it gives me an excuse to overdose on chocolate, the color pink and general cuteness. Three of my favorite all time favorite things.

I usually make some kind of sweet treat for the ocassion and these are just a few things that have made it on to my short list for this year:


Sweetheart Shortbread (via Diamonds for Dessert) The recipe yields a few dozen colorful cookies, so these would be perfect for stuffing into little cellophane treat bags for all of your Valentines.


Raspberry Lemon Whoopie Pies (via Martha Stewart) These would look gorgeous on a pretty serving platter for a Valentine’s day dessert buffet.


Sprinkled Strawberry Coconut Scones (via How Sweet It Is) For a festive breakfast in bed.


Conversation Heart Cake (via Studio DIY) I know they are a tradition, but conversation heart candies are disgusting. A conversation heart that tastes like cake? Now that I can get behind!


Nutella Espresso Cheesecake (via Baker Street) I’ll choose chocolate over any other type of dessert, any day of the week, and this seems like a super indulgent Valentine’s Day treat (plus, it was National Nutella Day a few days ago!).

What are your V-Day plans?
