6. Cupid’s Cupcakes

These might look like plain vanilla cupcakes, but they’ve got a secret: They’re stuffed with a generous scoop of creamy Nutella. Add a strawberry-Nutella buttercream and sprinkle with freeze-dried strawberry dust and you’re officially Cupid in an apron.

7. Red Velvet Brownies

This recipe has everything we love about red velvet cake (ahem, cream cheese frosting) without having to fuss with all those layers. We love to tuck these brownies into the kids’ lunchboxes for a special Valentine’s Day treat.

8. Mini Chocolate Tarts

These dainty, elegant little tartlets are bound to impress your valentine, but they’re actually super easy to make (you don’t even need a rolling pin). We promise we’ll never tell.

9. Valentine’s Day Cupcakes for Two

Coterie member Stefani Pollack knows that sometimes you don’t need a dozen cupcakes—especially on a holiday built for couples. This ingenious recipe makes just two chocolate spice cakes, topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. Plus, they’re ready in just ten minutes…a Valentine’s Day miracle.

10. Salted Caramel Brownies

Be still our salty-sweet loving heart. These are rich, gooey and studded with creamy caramel. A heart-shaped cookie cutter makes them holiday appropriate in a flash.

11. Lemon Rose Shortbread Cookies

Valentine’s Day is usually all about chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. But for something different, we love these delicate, buttery shortbread cookies. Add some rose petals if you’re feeling really schmancy.

12. Mini Berry Nutella Heart Pies

We love the way the berry filling peeks out the top of these adorable little hand pies. Serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and a pile of extra napkins.

13. Chocolate Sandwich Cookies with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

These are sort of a cookie-brownie mash-up — soft, chewy and deeply chocolaty. The raspberry cream cheese frosting works overtime, adding some much-needed tang (also, it’s adorably pink).

14. Easy Nutella Mousse

Mousse seems like the kind of dessert reserved for fancy restaurants, but it’s actually so simple to make at home. We love serving it in individual glass bowls with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
