Oh glory Fri-yay.
This one’s especially sweet..not because of Valentine’s Day (it’s probably my least favorite holiday) but because I have a 3 DAY WEEKEND! Granted, I’ll probably be getting my taxes done because I’m old and boring, but at least I can get them done in yoga pants.
But oh, Valentine’s Day. A day we tell the people we love that we love them in the form of chocolate hearts, roses, and teddy bears, or else we don’t love them. Marketing at it’s finest.
I really wish we could still hang heart-shaped envelopes on our desks and exchange punny cards with stale chalky heart candies. That’s what Valentine’s Day is really about. Stale chalky hearts.
Instead, I’ve rallied up 14 of the best treats to indulge in this holiday weekend. Why are they the best? Because they’re SINGLE SERVE. Meaning I have no excuse not to eat any and all of them single-handedly in front of my friends Pinot Noir, Joey, Phoebe, Rachael, Chandler, Monica, and Ross. Sorry guys, Donna told me to do it.
