I have been researching new Valentine's Day dessert recipes for the last few weeks because I really want to enjoy something sweet on Valentine's Day. Ever since I began this new way of eating in November, I have really had to be very picky about which sweets I indulge in, as my indulgences are so rare! When I do indulge, it has to really be worth the calories!
Take this Valentine's Day cupcake recipe from Glorious Treats as an example! This sweetheart cupcake recipe has a maraschino cherry frosting filling, and the heart-shaped cutout also serves as a little bite sized morsel of chocolate goodness!
These deliciously pink Valentine's Day marshmallows would be a fantastic dessert all on their own, or even make a beautiful accompaniment to any other Valentine's Day dessert recipes that you serve on your dessert tray!
I feel satisfied just by looking at this Valentine's Day marshmallow recipe by Decorada! The recipe includes rose water, so as soon as I make it to Whole Foods to buy some, I am going to give them a try!
I think that next is by far the most creative of the Valentine's Day dessert recipes that I have found, and I am really excited to try it out...
This recipe for a Red Velvet cheesecake Milkshake by The Novice Chef is an awesome all-in-one for those of us who have a killer sweet tooth: red velvet, cheesecake and hello!? It's all in an easy to drink milkshake!
This Red Velvet Cheesecake Milkshake recipe by the Novice Chef Blog is the perfect recipe for Valentine's Day, but of course you can make it for any occasion that calls for a rich, decadent dessert!
You can also find the beautiful Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownie recipe to go along with the milkshake - because you know, we can never have enough red velvet cheesecake!
This Creamsicle Cutout Cookie recipe is not only allergy-friendly, but it's super easy to make!
You can find this Creamsicle Cutout Cookie recipe on Allergic Kid, but they are not limited to Valentine's Day dessert recipes at all! They have great every day recipes as well, and they are mainly free of eggs, dairy and nuts! Who wouldn't love a Creamsicle in the form of a cookie?
I recently stumbled upon Hungry Happenings, where I found these adorable Conversation Heart Cheesecakes.
I love that they are individual portions, so you can easily customize each person's dessert with their own special message - or of course, you can simply arrange them on a tray and allow people to choose their own!
Do you have any favorite Valentine's Day dessert recipes that you make year after year, or do you try new recipes each time?
I'd love to hear your ideas!
