Maybe Valentine’s day is the last thing on your mind right now, but maybe not since you’re here anyway- right?

Personally I love making homemade treats to share with the ones I love, but they’re also great for your classmates, teacher or neighbor gifts. I remember just how excited I got for the candy that came along with the Valentine and making those fun boxes that everyone would drop them in. Do they still do that in school?

While I originally posted this round up waaaaay back in 2014 and well, it needed a major update. I’ve paired down the recipes and hand selected my favorite, fun, festive and gorgeous Valentine’s Day Desserts from Beyond Frosting and my friends. 

You’ll find plenty of heart shaped treats including cakes and cupcakes, cookies, candy and fudge and some more drool worthy treats.
