There are many ways to say, “I love you” — but our favorite is with a batch of fresh, homemade Valentine’s Day cookies. While there’s still time to add the perfect Valentine’s Day present to your cart, you can take a little stress out of your life by making something at home. Whether your significant other is a chocolate lover or they like their dessert a little fruity, the perfect treat is out there just waiting to be made on February 14th this year.
Sure, a box of chocolates is the traditional choice — and hey, there’s nothing wrong with that (In fact, we have some recommendations for the best Valentine’s Day chocolates). But doesn’t food taste best when it’s made by the one you love? With plenty of traditional options — plus gluten-free and vegan ideas — on our list, you’re sure to find the perfect Valentine’s Day confection to whip up for your loved ones this year.
