A Baked Valentine

To save some money, I've been looking into some different homemade "baked" valentines for my hubby. Here are some ideas:
  • Make a delicious meal for the whole family, then put the kiddos to bed early and serve Molten Chocolate Cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and fresh sliced strawberries (cut the recipe in half and use 6-7 oz. ramekins) as dessert for just you and the hubby. Watch a movie together or just cuddle on the couch while eating dessert.

  • Make the hubby's favorite food (Jared's is potato salad).

  • Chocolate "Paint" - I know I may get a little grief for posting this being a conservative baptist, but I enjoy being married (if you get my drift) and store bought is a little expensive.

  • Prep-ahead "Breakfast in Bed" - i.e. cinnamon rolls (can be made the day before, refrigerated, then baked the morning of), quiche (can be made completely the day before and then warmed the day of; or you can prep everything the day before, and then combine and bake the day of), program the coffee maker the night before, etc.).

  • Make your own chocolate covered fruits (strawberries, etc.), truffles, etc.
