Nothing says love and romance more than some super decadent desserts, which is why Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to whip up some love-themed recipes and spoil my man and little ones. And if you’re like me, you’ve been scouring Pinterest to find the best of the best when it comes to V-day treats.  So to make it easy on all of you busy momistas, I’ve put together a list of my 5 fave Valentine ’s Day sweets that you can make for the ones you love.

You all know about my love affair with jello molds, so when I saw this dessert I knew I had to include it in my list. Jello feels so retro to me which I love, and these sweets look as delicious as they do chic. You can find the recipe for these little cuties HERE

Red Velvet is definitely my favorite cupcake flavor, and the colors are perfect for V-day, so when I found this milkshake I knew it was gonna be a winner. This sounds absolutely delicious, and is something even my littlest ones would love, as well as the bigger ones and my hubby. You can find the recipe for this sweet sip HERE

This recipe had me at “2 ingredients”… nothing a busy mama loves more than a great recipe that’s easy to make! These little fudge hearts are SO perfect for Valentine’s Day, and I bet they taste as good as they look. Also, I think I know a certain young lady who would LOVE these… is it me or do they have Stella McDermott written all over them?! Get the quick and easy (and very pink) recipe HERE

Strawberry Cake in a Jar via Cupcake Lovers


I must say, I love a good dessert in a jar.  I think using mini mason jars (I LOVE mason jars!!) to serve your sweets is absolutely genius, and is something that I’ve done at parties and have sent as gifts. Who wouldn’t want to eat a red velvet cupcake in a jar??!! I really like the ombre effect here… looks very Valentines and very delicious too! Find out how to make this cute cake in a jar HERE
