If you are planning on baking this year and you’re looking for Valentine’s Day food ideas, you are in luck. There are plenty of options out there and you can choose based on your cooking skills, experience and available ingredients. Here are a few simple and flexible ideas.

Chocolate strawberries

Covering strawberries with melted chocolate is easy! All you need to do is melt some chocolate in a double boiler and dip your strawberries in it. Set aside on parchment paper and you’re all set. If you like, you can drizzle more chocolate over the top. The key is to use dark chocolate for dipping and white chocolate for drizzling or vice versa. You can also decorate with sprinkles. Just be sure to do so while the chocolate is soft.

Romantic cookies

Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make this Valentine’s Day food. You can bake any cookies you like. You can add choc chips, decorate with sprinkles or drizzle chocolate over the top. If your cookies are cut in the shape of hearts, they are automatically romantic. Which means that you only need to decorate them according to your preferences. If you are looking for a simple recipe, search for sugar cookies or shortbread cookie recipes online.

Raspberries and ice cream

If you aren’t up for baking or cooking but you want a delicious sweet treat after dinner, you can’t go wrong with berries and vanilla ice cream. Raspberries are loved for their sweet yet tangy taste. When paired with vanilla ice cream, you will enjoy all the flavour without too much sweetness.
