25 Decadent Chocolate Valentine's Day Desserts on RachelCooks.com

Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for a decadent, rich, sweet, chocolate dessert. Bars, cookies, pies, cakes and red velvet — it is all here. Something for you and your love — or something for you and your girls if you’re celebrating being single this year. Chances are, we’ll probably forget it is Valentine’s Day until three days later when we see the candy hearts on clearance. Life with two toddlers. It’s romantic.

Personally, I think you should make one dessert from each category listed here. It’s for Valentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day is about love. We wouldn’t want cakes to feel left out and un-loved. Or red velvet. Or chocolate ice cream! Chocolate ice cream needs to be loved by your spoon.

  2. Thanks for including my fondue! I think we are making that again this year, but I may try some homemade candy bars instead if I have time.

    Also, the commenter that mentioned the red velvet ingredients is correct. Maybe it’s from growing up in the Deep South, but it’s not red velvet without buttermilk and vinegar!

  5. I hope you don’t mind me saying this, but I really hate when people think that adding red food coloring is all one needs to make a red velvet cake-like item. Red velvet is a special kind of cake that requires some specific ingredients to make it special and gives it it’s flavor. I’ve been making red velvet cake since I was a teenager. Some of those recipes are not true red velvet-based. I know there isn’t a red velvet police, and you probably think I’m taking this too seriously, but to true red velvet connoisseurs, it does matter.

    Other than that, I do love your offerings.

  6. Awesome round-up, Rachel!! Valentines day treats are always so fun and thank for including my cake! Have a great weekend!
