36 Valentine’s Day Recipes

Sally's Baking Addiction Valentine's Day Recipe Ideas

I don’t publish very many recipe round-ups on my blog, but I couldn’t resist today. I’m a sucker for this upcoming sappy Hallmark holiday. Not because it’s sickeningly lovey-dovey, but because its celebratory color is pink.

Though I claim my favorite color is orange, everyone in my life will disagree. Heck, even the girls’ bridesmaid dresses are pink. More like coral. Two-toned orange/pink lace.

Valentine’s Day is an excuse to eat truffles, decorate desserts with heart sprinkles, and drink raspberry champagne floats. But do you really need a holiday to do all that?

Kevin and I celebrate Vday each year by going out for Mexican food or making our own at home. Always complete with margaritas on the rocks with salt and guacamole. Totally romantic, I know.

Alright, enough blabber. Here we go. All the photos are numbered and their links with corresponding numbers are right below each photo collage. Let me know which recipes you try!

  1. This list is seriously amazing. How can anyone resist one of everything?? 🙂

  2. Lots of great ideas for my very own sweetie! This is only our second Valentines Day together so we are still working out what our tradtions are going to be. I know for certain that our evening will include chocolate and pasta though 🙂
    Happy weekending!

  3. Love, love, LOVE your site! I’ve been looking at all of your beautiful recipe photos and I can’t pick JUST one! I want to try (and taste) them ALL! I too share a love for baking

  4. Love this round up! I recently did a V-days round up and I wanted to make everything!!

  5. I used one not listed here for my Valentines Day cookies this year. I used your funfetti sugar cookies and used heart shaped sprinkles. SO yummy!

  6. Even though all of these look amazing, I am just crazy-stupid in love with those Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies you made from scratch, and I can’t get my eyes off of them!!!! haha, but well done on all the rest too 😉 You are stellar!

  7. You really are a fantastic baker. That homemade oreo looks delicious. Hope to try it soon.

  8. I think my pup would love those doggy treats! I should probably bake something for her considering she’s always at my feet waiting for something to drop.

  9. Well, this week I’ve made #2, #4, #12, oh and #19. My husband says I need to take a baking break. But I am loving on the skinny muffins and the dogs aren’t complaining about their peanut butter treats!

  10. Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cheesecake looks amazing!! I may try that one soon only because DH wants them. Being a sweet roll fan, I can’t wait to make the Raspberry Sweet Rolls. Thanks for these wonderful Valentine recipes. I will have to make some for my co-workers, unless these treats get eaten up first at home. Ha!

  11. Oh Sally 🙂 today I’ve found your page and I’m so impressed! 😀 I had never seen such a big, awesome and special recipe gallery… All your recipes look so deliscous! *-* I fell totally in love with your blog and I can’t wait for try your recipes… ♥
    You’ll see me often here, I promise 😀
    Lots of love from Germany 🙂

  12. All look delicious. I wish I would have gone grocery shopping before all the snow hit – it’s hard being stuck in the house and not being able to bake!

  13. So many Valentines Day ideas! Its going to be impossible to only choose one…I might have to cook all 36! Thank you for all of these fantastic baking ideas.
