The day of chocolate and roses is here, and we hope that everyone is indulging in a little something sweet. In fact, we kind of hope that everyone is doing something silly, sappy, or romantic. Why not take advantage? It’s the one day you’re free of judgement for eating something heart-shaped, buying baby’s breath, or wearing neon pink to work.

Here are a few of our cheesiest recipes (when made on Valentine’s Day at least.) Happy Valentine’s Day!

Conversation Heart Nanaimo Bars: Canada’s classic treat gets a sappy twist with the heart-shaped candy. Call me, maybe?
Raspberry Rosewater Cupcakes: Sugar-covered rose petals? You betcha. Cupcakes for those who feel that more is more on Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries: The one day a year when eating these is fine outside a wedding buffet or Sandal’s resort.
