Sweet 16 – Vegan Valentines Recipes

by Kristina Sloggett

in random

Those who know me, know I love Valentines Day.

I am pretty sure everyone knows I love pink.

Yeah, I know the argument that love shouldn’t be reserved for a specific day (it isn’t), Valentines is exceedingly commercial (I don’t buy the merch – oh cripes I cannot lie I am a marketers dream), and love should be professed any and all the time.

It is. We do. and for that I am so very thankful and blessed.

I liked Valentines even when single (thanks Vick and Mikey for letting me be the third wheel that year – we had so much fun!).

Even before I was a food blogger, I created pink and red treats for February. I made Cookies On Dowels and sent them to Jason at work. It’s just something I do.

I have some perfectly pink treats to share in the next few days, and today I am sharing a whole bunch of them!

Happy February. Happy Valentines.

Will you be my Valentine and make me one of everything? :)

Even though I’m always single and hate the commercialism etc. that you mentioned, I still kind of like Valentine’s Day as well–and I’m not even really a fan of pink (but I am a fan of Pink the singer, so maybe that counts.) Anyway, I love the artsy side of the holiday and these recipes certainly qualify!

Pink the Singer works, most definitely! and thank you – some of these are on the crazy side (bright pink edible shot glasses, ahem) but many were simply fun to make. Truffles. I will always love coming up with new flavors and middles…

Happy Valentines to you, sweet friend. Sure wish I could rescue you from the snow right about now!

It’s okay, I feel you. I’ll never stop loving Valentine’s Day! :) We can be cheesy, pink-loving, Valentine’s Day loving gals together, Kristina!

YAY Katie! I know plenty like Valentine’s Day just fine, and just as many do not… Go Pink and Hearts and Sparkles and Love!

For years my go-to Valentine’s treat was chocolate dipped pretzels sprinkled with red and white sprinkles. I’ve never tried a pink version but now you’ve inspired me! :)

Oh yum!! So many I would love to make and will not have to right now. That’s okay, Valentines can last all year, right?
