I posted this Valentine's day post a few years back, right after giving birth to my oldest daughter, who just turned 5 in December! I can't believe it is already 2023! Yesterday we celebrated our sweet son Henry's birthday.
For some reason, Valentine's Day has been on my mind already, I want to make it extra special this year. Valentine's Day is generally not my thing, but this year I don't want to focus on romantic love (although I am married and Valentine's Day is also my husband's birthday, so there will be some romance) but just the importance of loving others in general.
Food is definitely a love language. In this post I listed seven great recipes for you to try out on Valentine's day (or maybe the lead up to it) including some great cocoa bomb ideas!
By the way, have you purchased our Hot Cocoa Bomb book from our Etsy shop yet? We actually have two, our original book, and our fall flavor book! Don't get the store bought trash, learn how to make the original and best cocoa bombs around, our Original Hot Cocoa Bombs!
Maybe I can convince my mom and sisters to put together a Valentine Cocoa Bomb recipe book in time to have all your favorite Valentine flavors this February!
Make sure you check out our video at the link below for how to make some tasty Strawberry Hot Cocoa Bombs. What a delicious, warm pink drink in time for Valentine's Day!

Our valentine's day will be different this year. It is PH's birthday, so of course we'll be celebrating that! But now we have a little one, and family will be in town to celebrate her because on the 18th she will be blessed at our church. (I guess a blessing is sort of like a christening, but there is no water. Is there water at a christening? I think so. a blessing is when the father, or another worthy priesthood holder, holds the baby and gives her a name and then blesses her with whatever Heavenly Father tells him to bless her with. In a nutshell.) Alicia will be here and her son's birthday is the 13th and he'll be turning 3! Our nephew Hunter is also here and he'll be 3 on the 20th! So with all this busy family time, we'll probably want to be using some of these great recipes ourselves!
Happy Valentine's Day!
