Oh my sweets!

Four days to go and the day of sweets hearts will be here yet again. I know some of us are not too ecstatic about this day for different reasons. But c'mon, you gotta love it for all those sweets! The always lovely Betty over at Betty Bake made these scrumptious heart-shaped brownies with raspberry cream that would be perfect for valentines. I would love to make some for my friends and family (who said V-day is just for lovers?). Besides, my boyfriend Jay is allergic to anything sugary sweet, and though he does bake better than I do, I'm the one who get to actually eat them!

How about you my lovelies, preparing anything special for your friends and families? Please do share! Meanwhile, check out Betty's recipe here.

  1. I guess it wont matter who eats them as long as you are eating some....I know I would be eating them all if I could get my hands on them. Yum.

  2. I'm not a V-day hater but I do wish every day is filled with love, not just this certain day. And I do love the brownies!

    ps. your bf being allergic to sweets -- does he get really sick cuz of it? or just don't like sweets? man, i don't know what i'd do if i'm allergic to it...brownies and ice cream make me smile any day...
