Say "I love you" with an extra-special homemade treat.
Looking for a thoughtful V-Day meal? We’ve got you covered. Celebrate the day of love with our brand-new Valentine’s recipes, which include everything from a cozy risotto for two to family-friendly sugar cookies. However you choose to celebrate the big day, you can count on these recipes to make it extra-special.
This pretty-in-pink snack mix couldn’t be simpler — or sweeter! Combine two different cereals for a variety of texture, then mix with Valentine’s-themed chocolates, sprinkles and freeze-dried strawberries. From a lunch box surprise to a movie night snack, you can’t go wrong with a big bowl of this extra-festive treat.
Staying in on Valentine’s Day? Make your at-home date night special with a creamy, dreamy risotto for two. Tender leeks, crispy pancetta and baby spinach fill the risotto with plenty of cozy flavor, but the cheesy risotto ensures that this isn’t your everyday dinner.
Vegan or not, you’ll adore these sweet, fluffy treats. A can of chickpeas is key to this dessert — the liquid from the can stands in for the traditional egg whites, leading to a fluffy meringue that bakes up crisp on the outside and marshmallow-like on the inside. Serve with strawberries and a coconut whipped cream for the ultimate romantic dessert.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day with your perfect match? Celebrate with a showstopping cake that features the other perfect pairing — chocolate and strawberries! This cake is a true stunner, thanks to the strawberries that are baked on top and used as decoration. A whipped cream border and two (yes, two) chocolate drizzles ensures this Valentine’s dessert will be the sweetest part of your special day.
Who doesn’t love a festive sugar cookie? Our recipe serves double duty, since these cookies can be a wonderful homemade gift or a fun activity to bake with kids. To ensure an impressive, marble effect, dip each cookie into a bowl of multicolored icing and swirl the design with a toothpick. Though you can bake these cookies as classic rounds, you’ll definitely get bonus points if you use a heart-shaped cookie cutter.
