A couple weeks prior to February 14th, everything seems to turn a shade of red. The normal contents of pharmacy shelves and grocery aisles are suddenly exchanged for massive maroon teddy bears and ruby-colored hearts galore. Whether you’re in search of the perfect confection to share with someone you love, or scouting out the optimal chocolate to move from hand to mouth while hunkered down in front of a Broad City marathon (no judgement), it can be easy to get confused in such a frenzy of pink glitter.

Don’t let yourself end up in the checkout line with a box of quirky-shaped candies with indistinguishable fillings (no matter how “handy” the included guide is). This year, make one (or all) of these 14 confections at home.
