This is a week when diets should be put to the side and chocolate and chocolate-covered fruits embraced.
Treat yo' self!
Stuff yo' face!
So make a dessert for someone you love and share that warm, sweet feeling that desserts give us. Or just make something tasty for you!
Whether you're going out for Valentine's Day or staying in, a dessert can be the cherry on top of the sundae of your V-day.
