As I was searching for a Valentines Day themed dessert to make for my son's preschool class, I quickly realized I've made plenty of those treats here on my own blog. So I thought I'd put them all together in one place so they're easier for you and me to find. Easier, that is, if you put yourself in the "I volunteered to make something, and not sure why" boat (like me).
This is one of the first cookies I made on the blog, they are Chocolate Espresso Cookies with Kahlua Buttercream. And like a lot of the treats featured today, they can be made and enjoyed year-round i.e., no "holiday" required.

Now this one is a lot of people's favorite. It's my Chocolate Covered Cherry Whoopie Pie. I love chocolate covered cherries, so it only seemed logical I make a whoopie pie in their honor.

If you like the combination of chocolate and raspberry together, this one is for you! Try these Chocolate Raspberry Cookie Bars. I'm not a big fan of the combo usually, but when you use fresh raspberries and no artificial flavoring or dyes in the buttercream, it's a winner!

If you're not in the mood for cookies, whoopies, or bars then try this Love Bark. The bottom layer is Double Stuf Oreo. It has a rich, creamy filling, and topped with chocolate and more crushed Oreo. This is all kinds of sweet!
It may not be Valentines Day for some without Red Velvet making a presence. This Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip is easy and super fun to eat. The combinations of dippers are endless! Be creative!

These Raspberry Cream Wafers almost melt in your mouth. The wafer is buttery and light and the cream in the middle is just right; flavored with raspberry preserves and almond extract. They're dangerous to have around when they're this tiny!

How about a brownie? Would you like it more if it were topped with Strawberry Buttercream? And what if you decided to splash some Kahlua in the ganache and batter? Now we're talking! Make me up a batch of these Strawberry Kahlua Brownies, please!

And last, but certainly not least...Whether you're not big into sharing or you're enjoying the night to yourself, the Strawberry Nutella Mug Cake is right up your alley! Dig in and pair with a large glass of milk or red wine. No judgements here!!!

I hope you found something that looks yummy to you or something that will help you decide what to make this Valentines Day. Thanks for stopping by! Now excuse me while I do some last minute shopping for a billion Valentines that my kids can pass out. Something Star Wars related, I'm sure.
