Here we are…the last week of January already! I guess that means it’s about time to round up some Valentine’s Day Desserts! Whether you celebrate the holiday or not, I say it’s always a good day for decadent treats!
I feel like people usually either love or hate Valentine’s Day. I, myself, am rather neutral about it. My husband and I don’t celebrate it *shrugs*, but I always make sure there’s an extra special treat for my kiddos. Regardless of your personal feelings on Valentine’s Day, there will nearly always be some sort of class party or festive lunch to celebrate the day, and what is the holiday without decadent Valentine’s Day treats?
I’ve got you covered for Valentine’s Day dessert ideas! I’ve sorted recipes into the following categories:
Pies & Tarts
Cakes & Cupcakes
There’s something for everyone! So, without further ado…
Pies & Tarts
Valentine’s Day calls for decadence, and these pie and tart recipes are just that! Lots of chocolate, salted caramel, and rich pastry creams and custards are the best way to show you care! 😉
Kahlua Brownie Pie
A decadent dark chocolate Kahlua icebox pie with brownie crust, topped with three flavors of whipped cream!
It isn’t really a party without cake, right?? These cake and cupcake recipes are decadent and delicious with deep dark chocolate and pink berry tones. There isn’t a recipe in this list that wouldn’t go over well with a crowd!
Vanilla Cake with Berry Buttercream
This vanilla cake is amazing–soft, fluffy, and flavorful. With the addition of mixed berry buttercream, it's like a dream!
The cliché is flowers and chocolates, but it’s not a cliché if it’s delicious! These truffles are better than anything you can get in those heart-shaped boxes at the store! Nothing shows your love quite like treats that you made yourself!
Dark Chocolate Champagne Truffles
Dark chocolate truffles flavored with champagne! Simple ingredients combine for a decadent treat!
So these Valentine’s Day treats fall into a miscellaneous category, but are certainly not to be overlooked! These recipes are unique and a little unexpected. Your valentine will certainly be impressed!

So whether you love, hate, or love/hate this holiday, I’m sure there’s something for everyone in this roundup of Valentine’s Day Desserts! Make them for someone you love, make them for friends, make them for yourself! Baking is love, and you deserve it! <3
