February is here, which means one thing – Valentine’s Day. It’s a time to show how much you love your significant other, kids, best friends, and family. But it’s also a time to throw your diet plans to the wind and dig into some sweet treats. Here are five fun and easy delicacies you should treat yourself to this upcoming Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day Treats
#1 Chocolate Covered Strawberries
This is a classic, must-have Valentine’s Day treat, and it’s super simple. Just buy microwavable semi-sweet baker’s chocolates and a box of strawberries, melt the chocolate in the microwave, and pour it over the strawberries. Let it sit in the fridge or freezer for some time and enjoy. Chocolate covered strawberries are a guaranteed hit and always fun to play around with!
#2 Breakfast in Bed
What says “I love you” more than delivering breakfast to the bed of your loved one? That’s right, nothing. So whip up those heart shaped waffles, pancakes, and eggs and wake your husband up to the smell of wonderful breakfast goodies made with love. He’s sure to thank you later for a great dinner, no doubt.
#3 Red Cocktails
There’s nothing like throwing a romantic name and some red coloring into a cocktail to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit. Whether you’re with your husband or girlfriends, red cocktails are a necessity. Mix together cherry liqueur with chocolate vodka and sparkling water to create a Chocolate Cherry Cha Cha or cranberry juice, creme de cacao, and vodka to make a Robin’s Nest.
#4 Wine and Cheese Fondue
This combination is a standard romantic idea, and it’s not hard to do. Have fun with it and form all the different cheese and wine combinations you can possibly imagine. The best part? Getting to feed each other. If you want to add some spice to it, make it more romantic by blindfolding the other person and having them guess the type of wine or cheese they are trying.
#5 Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate
Any form of chocolate is crucial to a sweet Valentine’s Day full of amazing treats. Whether you want to bake a three layer cake or run by the local supermarket for a box of Ferrero Rochers, a Valentine’s Day cannot be complete without chocolate.
We love Valentine’s Day for many reasons, the treats definitely being one of them. The key is to have fun, pair them with beautiful roses and scented candles, and relax. This night is for you and those you love. Forget about work, paying the bills, or the sitter you have to find for next week, and just focus on the here and now.
