Valentine’s Day is all about love: loving each other, loving yourself, and more importantly, loving dessert. You don’t need to have big plans, totally run your diet off track, or fork over a ton of cash to enjoy a super ~fancy~ and delicious dessert. These recipes are surprisingly healthy and the perfect portion for one person—meaning you can try them all. So pair your rom-com marathon with a marathon of desserts, and you’ll basically have the best Valentine’s Day ever (without even leaving the house).
