Valentines Day Treats

valentines day treats

I am here to save you money by getting you to make some of our top Valentines Day treats instead of diamonds. I promise these recipes taste better too. We all know chocolate is an aphrodisiac, so how about coffee chocolate frosting?  You can put it on bacon, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, spoons, fingers, lips ok this is a PG-13 website, you can use your imagination. I won’t stall you any longer so enjoy.

Valentines Day Treats

Most of us grew up seeing Valentine’s day treats all over the place. My main memory is always seeing those boxes of Russell Stover’s chocolates. I used to get frustrated because we would lose the description sheet and always had to bite to find out what flavor it was. I wasn’t an adventurous child, so 90% of the time I didn’t like what I got.

You don’t have to worry about that when you are making your own valentines day treats. Not only are they better for you and cheaper, you don’t have to worry about that dreaded bite of flavor you don’t like.

Not to mention, nothing says love to someone else or even yourself than taking the time to hand craft something delicious to share. I personally believe the art of cooking is one of the most romantic and loving gestures that can be given. Someone is trusting you to provide their sustenance which maintains life.

That is kind of a big deal, just saying.

Just in case you find yourself in a time pinch after creating all of these valentines day treats, here are some last minute date ideas to help you out.

Valentine’s Day Ideas

We all love food, these valentines day treats have that part covered. Now here are some romantic valentines day ideas for the person you love:

  1. On small pieces of paper, write down every kind of kiss that you can think of (examples: passionate, on the cheek, etc.). Then fill an inexpensive red felt bag with your “kisses” and give it to your spouse. Ask your spouse to pull several pieces of paper from the felt bag, and then give your sweetheart whatever kind of kiss is described.
  2. Make a book about why you love your spouse and why you are thankful for him/her.
  3. Take your sweetie on a scavenger hunt. Ask him/her to answer riddles to find the clues to items that you placed somewhere around town. The last item should give instructions that lead to your Valentine’s Day activities.
  4. After enjoying a candlelight dinner for two at home, give your spouse a massage and watch a romantic movie.
  5. Give your wife a dozen roses. On each stem attach a note for a future date—to do something that she would enjoy (example: Go to the symphony).
  6. For the other 20, click here…..

It’s not secret that I love chocolate.  I have been doing my research to justify my addiction and have actually found information that says long term ingestion of chocolate helps protect against UV rays.  The article says women so I am going to test the theory on men for the greater good.  I will report my delicious results after years and years of strict testing.

Oh and it also decreases blood pressure, so at the rate I eat it, I will try not to cease my existence.  I just wanted to share some justification for you to eat as much chocolate as I do. Now go enjoy these amazing recipes.

    Thanks for all your recipes. Everything I have made has always been great. Actually making your steak salad tonight!

  12. My fave thing to eat frosting on (depending on the type of frosting) w/b anything of a ‘cakey’ nature (cakes, donuts, etc). I can hardly wait to try ur coffee/choc frosting!! =]

  13. Love your blog, Instagram, contests, and your love for your gf! Can’t wait to make the lemon pound cake for my man!

  15. Thanks for all the amazing treat recipes, George! The Chocolate Blueberry Cake with the Coffee Chocolate Frosting sounds like a must try combination to me!!!

  18. I can’t even begin to imagine how the donut holes are going to taste with the chocolate frosting! Definitely going to try that this weekend! Thanks for the amazing recipes!!!

  19. So I’m making the frosting tomorrow!!! Like always, you’re recipes are delicious! Everyone loves it when I make your goodies and being them to the box or to work! Never disappoints!!

  20. Why do I have to choose?!?! I’ll keep it PG and inform you that I like frosting best on cupcakes. Yum!
    Oh, I really want some of those chocolate donut holes and the blueberry coffee brownies look like rainbows in edible form, whoa.

  21. Oh my gosh I picked the wrong time to do the 21 Day Sugar Detox!!

    My favorite thing with frosting on it would probably have to be cupcakes. Although technically cake pops have frosting IN it and those are the bomb diggity!!

  22. Frosting is best on a spoon straight but I have to go with those pink velvet cupcakes …. I am guessing you have tried this with bacon already…

  23. It’s really difficult to choose what I like to eat frosting on, but my go-to would probably have to be cupcakes (obviously, because a cupcake without frosting is obviously a muffin). For a more unconventional combo, I go for frosting + graham crackers. So good.

  24. I like frosting on cakes and cupcakes the most, second probably world have to be donuts! Thanks for all of the yummy recipes George!!!
