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

All the chocolate.

Unless you're one of the lucky few, Valentine's Day sucks. It either makes you feel like you're all alone (don't worry, you're not) or it convinces you that the romance from your relationship has simmered to a neutral (not true, either). The expectations of love for this one single day of the year are entirely unrealistic. The only saving grace of this holiday are the desserts, which often are chocolate and strawberry filled.

Lucky for all of us, chocolate is one of those foods that's good for us -- in moderation, of course -- and berries are full of antioxidants. So you can enjoy a sweet treat and feel good about it, too. This Valentine's Day do yourself a favor: treat yourself to one of these delicious desserts below and forget all about the romantic demands of this holiday.
