Valentine's Day Sweet Treats!









Happy almost Valentine's Day! I always love getting a little bit creative in the kitchen with some sweet treats for February fourteenth. Last year I challenged myself a bit and went with french macarons (some of my favorite treats!), which were absolutely delicious but are definitely not the easiest to perfect. If you're up for a challenge, then I say go for it - they are definitely worth it! This year I wanted to keep it a little bit simpler, but equally as delicious, and went with chocolate covered strawberries and rice krispie treats - heart shaped of course, and festively decorated for the holiday. In my opinion these sweats are such a staple of valentine's day and are so easy to make. It was a no brainer! 
With only a couple more days until V-Day, I figured I would share some inspiration to get you moving and grooving in the kitchen. Again, such easy and fun desserts to make, and perfect for a last minute gift, galentine's day party, or just a treat for yourself (because why not!?). 

Enjoy, xo!
