It’s no secret that Valentine’s Day is one of the sweetest days of the year. No matter which sugar-coated temptation your taste buds prefer, on this holiday, you’re sure to find something that strikes your fancy. Perhaps a pan of rich dark chocolate brownies is your absolute favorite, or maybe a warm crème brûlée is what hits the spot? February 14 is the day of love—you might as well treat yourself (and your special someone) to an indulgent, sugary fix.

Anyway you want to bake it, we have the recipes to help you think outside the chocolate box this Valentine’s Day. Who knows—this year’s treats could very well become something you’ll be reminiscing on until the next time Cupid flutters by.

Red Velvet No-Bake Cheesecake 

If this holiday had an official flavor, red velvet would be it. Unlike the routine red velvet cake, a rich red velvet no-bake cheesecake is a creamy newbie bake to make. A pleasant chocolate sandwich cookie dessert fixed with a fluffy whipped topping might just become your new favorite.

Dark Chocolate Panna Cotta with Blood Red Oranges 

We’re not going to lie, having a dessert that has a fruity addition—say, blood red oranges—makes the notion of eating something decadent (like this recipe) a little less devilish. The eerily beautiful blood red oranges embellish this pannacotta beautifully. Poise your spoon—this one is delicious.

Almond Crepe Cake With Raspberry-Rose Cream 

First things first: Always say yes to a raspberry-rose cream cake over one dozen roses. This winter white–frosted cake is beautiful when sliced to reveal layers of raspberry-rose pink cream.

Pink Velvet Cake Doughnuts

This Valentine’s Day, we are sworn to the idea of baking outside the chocolate box. There’s no need to send a box of various chocolate bonbons. Opt for pink velvet cake doughnuts instead.
