The Best Valentine’s Day Desserts

1. Oreo Truffles

These are 3 ingredient heart shaped Oreo Cream Cheese Truffles covered with white chocolate, perfect for Valentine’s Day. OMG! Just looking at these makes my mouth water. I’m not sure I could get past making the Oreo filling without eating it all (but it is worth a try!). The creamy combination of white chocolate and Oreos is, hands-down, impossible to resist. I love the light pink sprinkles she added on top. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, you can make these incredible Oreo Cream Cheese Truffles for your loved ones right at home. They would be a fantastic classroom gift too! Wrap them up in some clear cellophane bags and hand them out to friends. Cute!

2. Strawberry Lemon Blondies

Strawberry Lemon Blondies Recipe ~ these easy strawberry blondies are moist and dense, (think soft shortbread) with plenty of little jammy pockets thanks to a cup of diced fresh strawberries in the batter.  The hint of lemon revs up the berry flavor and gives these strawberry bars a bright, tangy vibe.

5. Strawberry Kit Kat Cake

“I baked a regular chocolate cake, sliced it in half, did a chocolate whipped cream and fresh strawberries filling, then spread more whipped cream outside the cake before sticking on the kit kats and topping with piles of fresh strawberries.” OK – I just have to try this technique! This cake recipe looks a little bit rustic & brings back childhood memories! I LOVED kit kats as a kid, but I’ve never paired them with juicy strawberries (seriously, why didn’t I ever think of doing that?). From adults to young kids, this is bound to be a crowd pleaser.
