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.
Nutella Icebox Stacks
How gorgeous are these hazelnut and chocolate icebox stacks? You can make 'em in advance and bring them out to wow your sweet with this treat!
Into a super rich and dense dessert? These classic soufflés are for you! The best news is the recipe can technically make three soufflés, so you and your sweet can each enjoy one and a half.
Dairy Free Chocolate Espresso Cupcakes
Who doesn't love the combination of strawberries and chocolate? This cake is fluffy, chocolatey and delightful and comes complete with strawberry icing beneath a fudgy icing. SO. SCRUMPTIOUS.
Dark Chocolate Panna Cotta with Fresh Blackberries
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!
Mini Brownie Layer Cakes
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.
Strawberries are always my jam, and my Small-Batch Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Cheese Icing recipe is perfect for two! While this recipe makes six cupcakes, you can easily save some for later or share with friends after the fact.
8 Bit Heart Cookies
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!
Homemade Raspberry Souffles
Love raspberries this time of year? Surprise your sweet by baking up souffles that are full of the sweet-tart berries.
Cream Puffs with Chocolate Custard
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.
You have no idea how much I am craving all of these right now! Chocolate, more chocolate, and maybe some chocolate shaved on top?! Haha, thanks for the awesome round up 🙂
ALL the chocolate for Valentine’s Day! And maybe a little fruit, too, to balance it out. 😉
Thanks so much! I hope this helps narrow down what you’re gonna make next week.
Those dark chocolate souffles are calling my name!! Great round up!!
They call my name all the time. 😉
They are all simply delicious looking!! How do you choose just one to make?
Haha, that’s the problem. 😉 But not a bad problem.
Love all these great ideas! Especially the chocolate ones 🙂
Thank you! And you can NEVER go wrong with chocolate for Valentine’s Day!
I would like one of each!!! Yikes!!! Is that bad??? 🙂
Haha, nope. Not bad at all! 😉 Happy Valentine’s Day to YOU!
