Valentine’s Day Chocolate Desserts
Chocolate and Valentine’s Day are a match made in heaven. From cute-as-can-be cake pops to rich chocolate-y truffles, skip the box of chocolate this year and instead make something decadent for that special someone.
Valentine Cake Pops. Decorated in sprinkles, glitz, and glam, these adorable pops taste as good as they look.
Swig Cookies. A no chill, no roll, drop cookie resulting in a chewy sugar cookie topped with a beautiful layer of frosting.

Cakes, pies, and tarts have a way of making any day feel extra special. I especially love anything that comes in mini form or that is easy to decorate, and there are plenty on this list that make my heart skip a beat.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Combine the cake mix, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Stir together until combined. Refrigerate the dough for 15-20 minutes.
Using a medium scoop or spoon, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking mat. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the cookies are set. You don’t want the edges to brown. Allow to cool on the pan for a couple minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
If desired, melt 1/2 cup chocolate and then dip half the cookie into the chocolate. Lay cookies onto a wax paper and add sprinkles on top if desired. Allow to cool.
Storage: To store, simply add to an airtight container or bag and keep at room temp for up to 5 days.Freezer instructions: Let them cool completely, then place in a freezer bag or covered container and freeze for up to 2 months.
