You don't have to make reservations at a crowded restaurant for Valentine's Day. You can stay home and have dinner inside of your own kitchen, instead. When you're finished with your main course, then you two can whip up some delicious dessert together. Looking for a few fun ideas? Here are some desserts that will fit the Valentine's Day theme:
1. Valentine's Day Cookies
These are heart-shaped vanilla cookies. They taste delicious, but they look adorable, too! To create them, you're simply going to make the dough. Then you're going to separate that dough and leave some of it plain, dye some of it red, and dye some of it pink. After that, you'll have to use a cookie cutter to create hearts of different sizes and place the smaller shapes inside of the larger ones.
2. Valentine's Day Cronuts
Don't worry, because this is easier to make than it looks. All you're going to need is all purpose flour, warm milk, granulated sugar, eggs, yeast, salt, vanilla extract, and butter. Then, for the glaze, you're going to need powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and red food coloring. You're basically going to create this dessert like you normally would, except it'll be in the shape of a heart.
3. Valentine's Day Lollipops
You don't actually need to make food for you and your boyfriend to share. You can make something that you two can give out to your friends, instead! Make these adorable lollipops by using a candy melting bowl, assorted candy melts, lollipop molds, lollipop sticks, and candy decorating pens.
4. Valentine's Day Cupcakes
You're going to start by making cupcake batter. Then you're going to put a section of the batter in a small bowl and add food coloring to it to make it pink. Cook it and cut out heart shapes from it. Then you can place the plain batter into a cupcake tin, place your heart inside, and cover it with more batter.
5. Valentine's Day Brownies
For this recipe, you're going to need dark chocolate, butter, sugar, cocoa powder, flour, and eggs. Once you mix the ingredients and bake them, you should cut the finished product into a heart. After that, you should use mini M&Ms to decorate that love heart!
6. Valentine's Day Macaron
If you can't understand the woman in the video, you shouldn't worry, because there are subtitles that'll help you follow along. If you listen to her instructions, you'll be able to create delicious macarons in the shape of a heart. Your boyfriend is going to love the taste, and your Instagram followers would love to see a photo of it!
7. Valentine's Day Cake
This is technically a "broken heart" cake, so if you're in a relationship, you might not want to make it. If you're single, you can make it with your friends instead! It's the cake that you've seen in Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" video. When you finish baking it and cut it open, it'll spill "blood" out of it. That's why it's the perfect thing to make if you're upset about the holiday.
Making these desserts can be just as much fun as eating them, as long as you're with the right man! Which one of these desserts looks the most delicious to you?
