Easy + Delicious Valentine’s Treats

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! We can’t believe we’re already halfway through February, but it just means we’re that much closer to spring! If you’re looking for sweet and simple treats to make for family and friends to brighten their day, you’re in the right place. Here are some quick and easy Valentine’s treats to get you in the spirit!

Chocolate-Covered Fruit

What says ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ more than chocolate-covered fruit? If you aren’t looking to get scammed by overpriced options at the store, make your own! Choose your favorite fruits (and make sure to wash them!) and your favorite type of chocolate. Melt the chocolate with coconut oil or butter. Put your fruit on skewers and dip them into the chocolate. Place your chocolate-covered fruit on a tray and stick them in the refrigerator to solidify. A few hours later, voila! You have delicious chocolate-covered fruit!

Strawberry Shortcake 

This is the perfect dessert for culinary beginners! Use either store-bought or homemade biscuits. Cut them in half, warm them up, and add whipped cream and strawberries to the center. It’s as easy as that and everyone is sure to love them!

Macaroon Bars

The best part of this treat is that you can make it as healthy as you like! These coconut macaroon bars can become your own by adding various nut butters and toppings such as strawberries, blueberries, and even pretzels! We just hope you like coconut, too!
