Valentine’s Day Round Up

I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. For years, I made batches almond cookies with pink frosting, and I haven’t been motivated to do that particular tradition post-gfree yet. However, I’ve more than made up for it in chocolate. Here are a bunch of my favorites for Valentine’s day for someone you love…and hopefully you’ve remembered to include yourself in that “someone you love”, too!

My very favorite new love:haz buttercups

Amazing Chocolates or Hazelnut Buttercups. I’ll be trying them tomorrow with a “caramel” filling. Fingers crossed!

Mint Bittersweet Fudge:

Sounds like a sugar bomb, but it’s actually not, thanks to a few magical ingredients.



Tuxedoed Strawberries Fruit in tasty formal ware. What’s not to love?


Chocolate Raspberry Pie Yes, there’s a secret ingredient, but don’t let that scare you. Bloggers at the Washingtonian tried it and gave it a thumbs up!

Hubby’s favorites:

Chocolate Covered Candied Orange Peels A favorite of many of my husbands, and many of our friends.

chocolate hearts





E’s Cake (aka chocolate hazelnut torte) I was so lucky that one of my favorite torte recipes just happened to be gluten-free.



Not in a chocolate mood? (first, just checking–are you okay?) lately my favorite sweet fix has been Shirley’s 3 Ingredient Maple Carmel Chews.

What’s your favorite Valentine’s day treat?

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.
