I will always remember my first Valentine’s Day with my then boyfriend, now husband, Bill. I’m super sentimental and have been known to pull the line, “You don’t have to spend a lot of money – just do something creative. I like homemade things.” Haha. This is an evil thing women do to men, but he always comes through for me, so it must be working!
That first Valentine’s Day, he took my words to heart and made me a card, complete with foam, puffy paint, and felt letters he cut out himself, along with a now scruffy-looking teddy bear and flowers. The card read, “To the world you may be one person, but to one person you are the world. Happy Valentine’s Day.”
I feel blessed to be married to a man who knows the importance of romance and making me feel loved on Valentine’s Day and throughout the year.
Since we are likely to be snowed in on Valentine’s Day this year, we decided to make the most of the time and whip up some yummy Valentine’s Day sweet treats!
If you like peanut butter, chocolate, walnuts and almonds, you will like at least one (if not all) of these recipes!
All the recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and raw, so everyone can enjoy them! They come from one of my favorite bloggers, Angela Liddon, at oh she glows.
They’re listed in order of awesomeness. It should be no surprise that the chocolate peanut butter combo is the winner. It is AMAZING!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip – oh my chocolatey peanut buttery goodness. That is all I will say…you HAVE to make this stuff…As tempting as it will be to literally drink the whole bowl, try dipping strawberries, bananas, or apples in it!
Seductive Raw Chocolate Walnut Fudge – Holy cow. This melt-in-your-mouth fudge is simple to make, loaded with chocolate/walnut/maple flavor and won’t stay around for long!
Raw Almond Butter Cups – Almonds. Cinnamon. Chocolate. What’s not to love?
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
I want you to make me those almond butter cups!
Sure! We will have some the fudge tomorrow at the party. I think you will love it!
I made the fudge, but used the idea from the almond butter cups above and froze them in my silicone heart shaped ice tray! We put some sea salt flakes on top (I’m really into chocolate and salt at the moment) and had them for dessert last night. They were terrific! Thanks so much for the recipe!
That sounds so creative! Isn’t the fudge awesome? I love that idea and think I will steal it the next time I make the fudge! More recipes to come this week 🙂
