Desserts and sweets go hand in hand with Valentine’s Day in our house. We love decorating cookies, making chocolate-covered strawberries, having fun snack trays, and enjoying all of the festive treats! Milkshakes are a MUST and so so cute this time of year because you can really make them fit the holiday.
