Valentine’s Day has always been a special day for my husband and I.
We went on our second date ever on Valentine’s Day in 2004 (our first date was the week before, on February 7th, 2004 – when I was still in college).
Now that we are parents we don’t get as many date nights. Instead we try to create romantic date like moments at home, when we can.
Obviously, Valentine’s Day has a special meaning for us, like it probably does for many people. And for us, celebrating often has a grand finale of amazing desserts since we both have a huge sweet tooth.
These 30 romantic desserts are perfect for two! Enjoy them during Valentine’s Day or for any special occasion. Feel free to also make a few, try a bit of everything, and really indulge!
What Are Romantic Desserts?
When it comes to Valentine’s Day often romantic desserts are associated with decadent sweet treats. Lots of warm melty chocolate, like fondue, or molten cakes.
Add a splash of red to your desserts to bring in that color of romance. Adding fresh berries like raspberries, or strawberries can turn an ordinary dessert into something truly special.
Any dessert can be romantic when you’re sharing it with someone you love.
Some of my favorite romantic desserts include:
- Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- Red Velvet Cake or Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites
- Chocolate Lava Cake
- Heart shaped sugar cookies or buttery shortbread cookies
- Creamy mousse
- White chocolate mousse paired with fresh berries
How Do You Make Romantic Desserts For Two?
There could be many reasons why you want a dessert that is suitable to share with two. Maybe you don’t want a lot of extra dessert in the house. Maybe you live with just one other person, or possibly it’s Valentine’s Day, and you want a romantic dessert for just the two of you.
Here are a few helpful tips.
- Small batch cookies. They are just enough to enjoy with the one you love.
- Small batch brownies
- Mug cakes or mug brownies.
- Crème Brûlée, is a great treat you can make in a small batch to enjoy with someone else.

How To Make Healthy Romantic Desserts
With a few healthy swaps, you can turn any dessert into a healthier version of the original that still tastes just as good! Here are my recommended healthy swaps for most classic desserts:
- Replace half the butter with unsweetened applesauce
- Reduce the sugar by half, or replace the sugar with monk fruit or stevia.
- In some baked goods, you can use whole wheat flour or almond flour instead of all purpose for a higher fiber, lower glycemic option. Check each recipe card to determine what would work.
- Additionally, you can substitute a flax egg for regular eggs in most cookies, brownies, and other baked goods. Flax eggs are lower in calories and fat compared to regular eggs.
How To Store Valentine Dessert Recipes For Two
Most baked goods: cookies, brownies, etc. can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, and in the fridge for up to 7-14 days!
However, other sweet desserts that have dairy in them – cakes, cheesecakes, vanilla or chocolate pudding, flan, creme brulee, etc must be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. They should all last up to 4-5 days in the fridge. Confirm proper storage instructions by checking the notes in each recipe card above.
If you’d like to serve any of these easy desserts warm, just heat them in the oven for about 5 minutes at 300-350 degrees F or until warmed through.
