This year I contemplated boycotting Valentine's Day. In case you don't this about me, I'm not much of a joiner. If every one does it, I don't do it. But how can you boycott Love Day? Besides, I love that it's a feast day and every one celebrates!
If you celebrate St. Valentine's Day but would like to boycott the Hallmark holiday that it has become, just make your beloved (and baby beloveds) a nice meal and a tasty dessert.
Below are a few suggestions in case you are stumped. They are all tried and true.
Sugar Cookies cut with heart-shaped cookie cutters and frosted with thick icing -- tint it pink or use red sugar
Raspberry Shortbread Thumbprints
Snickerdoodle Bars -- because to some people cinnamon says love better than chocolate
Chocolate Revel Bars
Tollhouse Pie -- rich and so sweet
Molten Lava Cakes
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
Chocolate Supreme Cheesecake -- rich and decadent
Deep Dark Chocolate Cake -- frost with whipped cream for a real treat
