When it comes to letting someone special know how much you care, nothing says “I love you” more than a home cooked meal, made with love.

Light a few candles and turn on some soft music to set the mood. When the meal is over, brew some espresso or tea, or indulge in a Valentine’s Day cocktail to enjoy with one of these desserts!

Check out the video at the top of this post!


Types of Valentines Day Desserts

  • Chocolate- Rich, chocolaty treats are perfect for this holiday of love. Not only is chocolate delicious, but it also contains natural stimulants and tryptophan. This is part of a natural “feel good” drug in the brain, known as serotonin.

    Although these chemicals do exist in chocolate, the quantity of them really isn’t enough to cause an actual physiological reaction. The thing is, chocolate is sweet, silky and smooth, so it’s likely to fuel a little inner passion.
  • Strawberries- With their festive color and heart shape, strawberries are the perfect choice for a Valentine’s dessert!
When you’re shopping for fresh strawberries, avoid any with dark leaves or mushy spots. If they’re in a plastic container, check the underside for signs of mildew or mold.

To extend their life, wash fresh berries as soon as possible after you get home from the grocery store.

Make a vinegar-water bath with 1 cup of white vinegar and 8 cups of water. Place the berries in the vinegar-water, then gently move them around to help dislodge any dirt and grime. The vinegar will kill any mold spores and bacteria.

You can either pat them dry with paper towels or simply allow them to air dry before storing them in the refrigerator. Use them within 4-5 days for the best flavor and freshness.
