Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because I just find it so romantic. The chocolate, flowers and all the love in the air, it’s just a lovely time.

With that being said, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for me to make all the creamy, dreamy, chewy and chocolatey treats like this Valentine Unicorn Cake, Red Velvet Heart Crinkle Cookies, and this Strawberry Cocktail.

Things to Note

  • Cover any leftovers to avoid the bars getting hard.
