Usually, Andrew and I don't really take this holiday very seriously and we'll just celebrate with a pack of dark chocolate peanut butter cups (Justins, in case you're wondering) and a glass of wine. Simple, but not really special and definitely not something we think about or plan. This year, I've actually got something sweet up my sleeve. I wanted to share some ideas so you too, can have a special, romantic day with your sweetheart! And if you're flying solo, maybe it's a special day to focus on you and splurge on something that makes you happy!
I love making treats and Andrew loves chocolate, so my treats for him are usually one of these below. I meant to share 10, but couldn't hold back on adding an extra so here you go: 11 Valentine's Day Ideas to make! **For a low carb treat, adjust the sweetness level on these recipes. They're intended to be sweet enough for most palates, but chances are, if you're here reading this, they might be a tad too sweet**
