Simple, Sophisticated Valentines Day Treats

With Valentines Day quite literally around the next corner (you couldn’t escape the almost noxious store displays of red and pink if you tried), now is the time to put together last minute Valentines Day plans. While I have to admit to being a big sucker for Valentines Day in all of it’s cheesy, capitalistic, chocolate covered glory – there are some who abhor the holiday, believing that there shouldn’t be just one day a year for romantic gestures and that the Hallmark/Purdy’s induced pressure drains the sentiment and meaning right out of the day. Regardless, whether your V-Day plans are grand, small, or non-existent, there is no such thing as a bad time for amazing food.

With this in mind, I have curated a list of 8 Valentines Day inspired treats, from breakfast (I know my boyfriend, the bacon and eggs connoisseur, would love the B&E toast cups) to cocktails. Simple to make, sophisticated and delicious – these treats are cute and charming without being overly kitschy and could definitely be whipped up and appreciated all year long.
