Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but I’m sure you already knew that. I’m sure you already have your perfect day planned out down to the dinner reservations and the outfit you’re going to wear. And guys, I bet you guys have already found the perfect sentimental card and have picked out THE most gorg bouquet of roses from FTD, right? Right
Well, if you’re counting down the minutes in anticipation or if you’re still frantically searching for a romantical dessert or a perfect sweet treat to take to neighbors, classrooms, or coworkers, search no more! Cupid struck me early and I got in the spirit with plenty of time to spare. These versatile treats will make any recipient feel oh-so special, and they’ll make you feel oh-so happy since they’re super simple to make, yet make a seriously lovely impression.
I know, because I am the queen of making seriously lovely impressions. #indenial
