February  8, 2013

Valentine's Day is often scorned by those who abhor all things cloying, clichéd, or candied. But whether you'll be dressing up for a fancy date or donning sweatpants to watch romantic comedies and eat popcorn, you can still find a little fun in the tradition of gifting valentines to friends, family and coworkers. This year, make them edible -- it will bring you one step past mass-produced, cartoon-embellished cards, and it will win you huge points with anyone on the receiving end. We've rounded up 9 recipes for edible valentines that will help you embrace the platonic loves of your life -- and give you a fun kitchen project to boot.
