Sure, Valentine’s Day is about love and whatever, but it’s more so about desserts. That’s just a fact. I didn’t make it that way, the government did. Yep. I believe in a conspiracy theory about Valentine’s Day put in place to boost the economy. It makes sense, doesn’t it? It’s the down time after Christmas and New Years, something has to get people excited again!
Either way, I love Valentine’s Day because it gives me an excuse to make a GIANT dessert, after eating 3 bites of my dinner, and be lazy on the couch with my man. That’s what we did last year since we had just moved into our new place together. This year, he has to work late so afterwards we will be eating dessert and talking wedding details since this will be our first Valentine’s Day as an engaged couple! Eeeeeeek. I think we’ve almost decided where we are going to do our destination wedding and I’m just so damn excited! That means wedding dress shopping and picking bridesmaid (and my bridesman) colors and all the other fun junk that goes along with it. I’m so excited we are doing a destination wedding, I can’t imagine doing it any other way.
Ok, enough of me being annoying. Let’s get our dessert on!
This dessert is so incredibly decadent. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. I wish I could say I came up with it, but this is all Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo. You absolutely should make this.
These are BY FAR my favorite cookie on my blog. They never disappoint. You wanna know what I did with them the other day? It’s naughty, but you were warned. I was having a crap day and what did my guy do? He came to the rescue, as always. As soon as we finished our workout, we headed to frozen yogurt to take home for later. I topped my caramel frozen yogurt with sprinkles, walnuts, and this cookies crumbled on top. I died.
Dessert for one? No problem at all. These two mug cakes below will keep you from eating a whole batch of cookies, or brownies, or a cake, or candies. No need to hate life on Sunday.
Can life get any better? I mean really. Seriously. Let’s drown in these.
The best brownies you will ever have, paleo or not.
These bars will forever live in my heart. You know why? Because the first party I ever went to with my fiancé, I brought these to hopefully impress his friends. AND IT WORKED. They still like me! Dummies.
