While I love red velvet any time of year, it seems especially perfect for Valentine’s Day. I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day, even when I’ve been single. It seems like a good excuse to get dressed up and eat chocolate (when in a relationship) or ice cream (when on my own). Valentine’s Day, to me, equals pink, hearts, and sugar. I always try to bake something for my coworkers. I think it’s because I miss buying paper valentines to hand out to all of my classmates… they seem to sell cuter ones every year!
This year I will be making some red velvet cookies with the help of the Pilsbury Doughboy (they actually sell premade dough now!), but if you feel like being slightly less lazy ;), here are some delicious-looking red velvet treats!*
