There’s no denying that Valentines Day is the sweetest of all the holidays.
Sure, it’s tempting to simply pluck a heart-shaped box of chocolates or truffles off of a store shelf and hand it to your partner. For those without a sweetheart, it’s even more tempting to pick up an extra one for yourself and eat the whole box in bed while you watch a rom-com.
So, instead of reaching for a store-bought package, why not make a unique Valentine’s Day treat straight from the heart this year? Whether you are spending the day with your significant other, or celebrating a Zoom-based “Galentine’s Day” instead, this assortment of homemade goodies will show someone that you have put in the effort and truly care.
