Easy Valentine's Day Desserts
Need Valentine’s Day dessert inspiration? Look no farther than these fourteen unique, delectable sweets that can be made for two! From cupcakes to souffles, cream puffs and more, this recipe round-up contains a wealth of different dessert ideas that would be perfect for any at-home date night or Valentine’s Day sweet.
Chocolate Desserts for Sharing
Nothing says Valentine's Day like chocolate! These chocolate-centric desserts are perfect for sharing with the person (or the people!) you love the most.
These cupcakes are totally a mouthful to say, but they are insanely delicious to eat! Super easy to make, too, since you're using a boxed mix and jazzing it up a bit to bring this chocolate and raspberry to life.
I’m a sucker for all things chocolate, and these chocolate and espresso cupcakes, which are completely dairy free, are totally swoon-worthy! Added bonus: Doesn’t make your lactose intolerant friend’s tummy sad later.
When I first saw this Dark Chocolate Panna Cotta with Fresh Blackberries, I thought it was a drink. Make these a day or two in advance and keep 'em cold in the fridge before serving. Surprise your sweet (or Valentine's Day guests!) with this dessert that looks like a cocktail!
I don't know about you, but these MINI CAKES are so fun because you can eat have your own... or you can split one! Complete with brownie layers, frosting and raspberries, I have a feeling these layer cakes won't last long.
These Chocolate Dipped Strawberries are a classic for a reason: they're so, so, so delicious. Use your favorite type of chocolate, and make it a group activity (because who doesn't enjoy a chocolate-filled activity?)
Turn Valentine's Day into FONDUE night and cap the evening off with S'mores Fondue! Add your favorite dippers, like Graham crackers, marshmallows and berries to complete this one-of-a-kind dessert that was made for sharing.
Non-Chocolate Valentine's Day Desserts
Not everyone digs chocolate, so these desserts are for them. Or for the folks who are into chocolate but also enjoy something that's less dense and has some lighter flavors.
Share your (cookie) geek love by decorating cookies with 8 bit hearts. Perfect for the person who'd rather bake cookies and decorate 'em in advance, as well as for anyone who likes their dessert to nod to adorable nerdiness.
Pudding for Valentine's Day? I'm here for it if it involves BUTTERSCOTCH, a drizzle of nice chocolate sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. You can make these in advance, too, so you won't have to worry about making them the night of!
So technically, this dessert involves a little chocolate... but cream puffs are a different beast than all the chocolate-centric desserts above. And who doesn't love a cream puff? I adore this twist on the classic filling and think this would be a lovely capper on any dinner.
