The Most Decadent Valentine's Day Desserts
This Valentine’s Day, instead of reaching for the cliché box of chocolates, why not tie on a heart-print apron instead? Grab the mixing bowls, put on your favorite love song playlist, and whip up a delicious home-baked treat for you and your loved ones to enjoy together! It’s far more rewarding to dig into a homemade red velvet layer cake than it is to bite into the inevitable bad pick from a box of mixed chocolates. If you think you don’t have time to make a batch of heart-shaped brownies, think again. Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday on a three-day weekend, so set aside time now to channel your inner Ace of Cakes. You can even make an event of it and ask your sweetheart to join you for a romantic afternoon in the kitchen. Pour some rosé, nibble on a slice of cheese, and put together a berry tiramisu. Need inspiration? Here are 10 of the most decadent Valentine’s Day desserts around.
Chocolate cupcakes with creamy pink buttercream frosting and brownie heart toppers? I mean, come on! How could you say no to that?
No Valentine’s Day dessert roundup would be complete without a chocolate lava cake recipe. These individual cakes were originally created by chef Jean Georges-Vongerichten—and they were a mistake! Too little flour was added to a classic chocolate cake, and the resulting dessert was so wildly inventive rich that it went down in culinary history.
