Whether you’re ready to celebrate with a partner, or you're single and counting down the days until Galentine’s Day (which is, of course, the day before Valentine's Day, Feb. 13), there’s one thing that we can all celebrate — delicious, sweet, heart-shaped goodies. The more sugar, the better. And these heart-shaped Valentine’s Day treats are about to make you fall madly in love.
There are all sorts of treats and eats in this list, to the point where if you’re determined, I’m sure you could limit yourself to only eating heart-shaped foods all Valentine’s Day long. (Of course, Valentine's Day is the day to throw lavishly throw hearts in every corner of your world, so this doesn't strike me as a terrible idea.) So even if you’re throwing a party or not, these little treats are still worth all of the cooking and baking required. Personally, I have my eye on those Strawberry Glazed Donuts for my Valentine's Day morning…especially to pair with a delicious cup of coffee. Do you think I could find a mug that is heart-shaped? Wait, just did.
From dessert pies to pizza pies, cookies and cakes, this list is going to make you heart emoji the all over your screen. So pull out your sugar,your flower, and your heart-shaped sprinkles, because it’s time to bake the crap out of Valentine’s Day in 2017.
1. Chocolate-Dipped Rice Krispie
A twist by Mel’s Kitchen to your usual rice krispie treat – cut them into hearts, sprinkle with some love, and dip in chocolate!
2. Raspberry Pancakes
Not only are these pancakes by The Kitchn filled with some sweet raspberries, but they're also shaped into those cute little hearts!
3. Cake Pops
You’ll definitely have to get a cake pop shaper for these pops by Bakerella… but the cuteness factor is on point so I think it’s totally worth it!

5. Strawberry Coconut Milk Scones
Okay seriously, yum. These scones by How Sweet Eats are drizzled with strawberry goodness.

These French Palmiers by The Kitchn are so cute I could squeeze them! But not really because they look delicate, I’ll just eat all of them instead.
