One of the best ways to share the love is by sharing food, so here are some Valentine’s day foods and recipes to spread kindness with. Or don’t share, self love is important too!
Keep it sweet with Dunkin’ Donut’s Valentine’s Day donuts and drinks. The Brownie Batter Donut makes its return, along with the Cupid’s Choice donut.
Pair it with a new drink, especially for all of the chocaholics out there. The Brownie Batter latte is new to the scene, but only for Dunkin’ members in app. The latte combines rich espresso with gooey, bowl-licking brownie batter flavor, and is topped with whipped cream, a mocha drizzle and festive sprinkles. Not a member? The Cocoa Mocha Signature Latte features rich espresso and decadent mocha flavor and doubles down on chocolatey goodness with a mocha drizzle, hot chocolate powder and whipped cream.
Krispy Kreme has partnered up with Hershey’s this year, to bring the most decadent chocolate donuts. The line up includes all heart shaped donuts with four different flavors.
Hershey’s I Pick You: Kreme and dipped in Hershey’s chocolate icing, decorated with buttercream and an icing rose.
Hershey’s Double Chocolate KISS: Hershey’s milk chocolate filling, dipped in chocolate icing and covered with mini milk chocolate kisses.
Hershey’s Strawberry Dream: Hershey’s strawberry flavored Kreme, dipped in red icing and covered with white chocolate chips and heart sprinkles.
Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Caramel: filled with Kreme, dipped in Hershey’s caramel icing and covered in chocolate drizzle with semi-sweet ships and heart sprinkles.
Nuggets and mini’s are already a staple in the diet of the Gwinnettian, but make it an even lovelier treat with Chick-fil-A’s heart shaped trays. Chick-fil-A nuggets, Chick-n-Minis, Chocolate Chunk Cookies or Chocolate Fudge Brownies.
It’s never too early for ice cream, no matter the time of year. Baskin-Robbins brings the Love Potion #31 back to shops, as well as a heart shaped ice cream cake that will be perfect for Valentine’s parties. The ice cream is white chocolate and raspberry flavored, with raspberry-filled chocolate flavored hearts, raspberry swirls and chocolate flavored chips. That’s a whole lot of sweetness.
Cake Time! The Baskin-Robbins also has the new Crazy for You Cake. This made-to-share, picturesque cake is heart-shaped and bursting with decadent fudge accents and chocolate drips, a crunchy OREO® Cookie and buttercream rosettes.

These are very simple, which means you can even make them with the kids for breakfast in bed! Jamie Geller’s Egg Toast can be fancied with some avocado roses or some bacon. If you aren’t the greatest chef, this easy choice will be great!
Love the design but hate the taste of candy hearts? Try them in cookie form. These cute Conversation Heart Cookies from Sally’s Baking Addiction are sugar cookie based, and they are as yummy as they are adorable.
