Do you go big or small for Valentine’s day?
Personally, I have never made a big deal about it, my hubby and I exchange cards and he usually buys me flowers, which the ever practical side of me always tells him to buy them a day or two after, when they are cheap!
But, I have always made a special treat for our family!
So grab a cute apron and let’s make a sweet treat for Valentine’s day!
Everyone loves a special sweet treat and I hope you will find one or two recipes from this collection of easy Valentine’s Day desserts that you will love to make!
