26 Valentine's Day Desserts That Are Better Than A Date

All of them perfectly decadent.

Unless you're within the first year of dating someone new, Valentine's Day sucks. It either makes you feel like you're all alone -- don't worry, you're not -- or it reminds you that the romance from your relationship has simmered to a neutral -- it's not either. The expectations of love for this one single day of the year are entirely unrealistic. The only saving grace of this holiday is the chocolate. And cake. And chocolate-covered strawberries on top of a towering cake.

This year, we're rejecting all romantic expectations of this holiday and replacing it with the best desserts one can possibly eat on Valentine's Day. Many of them involve strawberries. Or raspberries. And even more of them are loaded with chocolate. A couple of them even involve booze. But each and every one of them is better than any date you can have on this holiday.

That is our gift of love to you. Happy Let's-Eat-Lots-Of-Dessert Day!
