Once heart-shaped candy boxes start to dazzle the end caps of grocery store aisles, I am reminded of how much I adore two things: dessert and Valentine’s Day. Not only do I love love, but I also love making desserts for others, so come February, I get especially excited thinking about all the Valentine’s Day desserts I’m going to surprise my loved ones with. If planning my whole month around dessert is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

With that said, there are so many dessert recipes on the internet that would be perfect for this very holiday that it can be almost impossible to choose which one (or three) to make this year. Whether you plan to attend a Galentine’s Day party, prepare a sweet treat for your significant other, or simply indulge in your favorite dessert while you rewatch Valentine’s Day on the couch, here are 35 of the best Valentine’s Day desserts to choose from.
