One of the best ways to show your love for someone is to cook for them. The art of cooking for someone takes time, concentration, and creativity. It demonstrates that you genuinely care for the person or people you are cooking for. As famed author and educator Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt said, “Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.”
With Valentine’s Day coming up this weekend, we thought now was a great time to share some of our favorite dessert recipes.
Valentine Chocolate Soufflé with Mocha Sauce
The soufflé has long been a staple of French cooking across the world. Soufflé means to puff something up through the act of baking or cooking. That is why we love this chocolate soufflé recipe from All Recipes. This rich, decadent dessert features a mocha sauce with cream, chocolate, espresso powder, coffee liqueur, and vanilla extract, so it’s sure to please. The key to any soufflé is the bake so while this recipe only takes an hour and a half, you must be mindful and watch it very closely.
Double-Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
If there is one thing that has become synonymous with Valentine’s Day, it is chocolate. That is why we can’t resist this double-chocolate sandwich cookie recipe from the Food Network. The outer cookies are made with Dutch-process cocoa powder giving them a delicate milk chocolate crisp while the filling is made from white chocolate which elevates this heavenly treat. To add an extra special touch, consider using a heart shaped cookie cutter to show your love.

You had us at chocolate and peanut butter. This incredible lava cake recipe from The Pioneer Woman blends two sweet treats effortlessly in one amazing dessert. All you will need is a collection of simple ingredients including peanut butter, powdered sugar, Dutch-process cocoa, bittersweet chocolate and vanilla extract. One of our favorite things about this dessert is that it only takes 45 minutes to make! You will be gushing about how delicious this cake tastes.
Raspberries are the perfect fruit for Valentine’s Day because they look like little hearts! Add them to your dessert mix with this Raspberry-Ganache Tart recipe from Country Living.
