Ritz Reese's Cup Sandwiches coated in dark chocolate!

Hey there Valentine! Y’all know how I feel about Valentine’s Day and the overpriced dinners out and crazy over the top pressure people put on it. However, I have always LOVED Valentine’s Day Desserts. Chocolate, hearts, strawberries — you can always count me in.

I can’t wait till the girls are in elementary school and get to exchange little cards with their friends. Desserts and adorable kid valentines…that’s what it’s all about for me.

In classic food blogger form, I made my own Valentine’s Day dessert. They were supposed to make it until Valentine’s Day…but in the course of 48 hours, we ate them all. Looks like Jorge is back on the hook for VDay dessert.

Think I can convince him to bake me a red velvet dream cake? Considering he burns eggs, I don’t think I have very good odds.

These candies are everything you would ever want. Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Sweet. Salty. Crunchy. Seriously, what else could you possibly need in a dessert?

I made these in just a few minutes and they looked crazy impressive and are so dang tasty. I also made these at Christmas and gave them to our neighbors. They lost their minds over them! I happened to leave out how easy they were to make. Really hoping they don’t see this particular blog post.

I hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day doing whatever it is you do to celebrate. We plan on taking our adorable twin valentines out to lunch after their naps and treating them to cheesecake.

    Haha – so true that, as food bloggers, we’re often making our own special treats and celebration foods! Oh, we’ll … at least then you know you own’t end up with those burned eggs! 🙂 Anyway, these are just so darling, and so easy to make, too! And hey – only 3 ingredients! Yay!

    I love how impressive these are with such minimal effort. I think I need to make a batch for the fam for V-day. And I know what you mean, the classroom parties and card exchanges in elementary school are what it’s all about (I miss that).
