Skip Gifts, Give Chocolate
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and sometimes the most thoughtful gifts are the ones that you make yourself. These homemade Valentine’s Day treats will show your sweetie that you’re sweet, too. You could buy a pack of Valentine’s Day chocolates from the store – or, you could carefully craft your own decadent truffles from the heart. And instead of buying Sweethearts from the store, why not make your own Valentine’s Day cookies with a love note written in icing instead? We promise: The only thing cheesy about these sweet treats is the cream cheese in our rich Bourbon-Cream Cheese Brownies.
