Valentine’s Day is approaching fast, and all you single Bauces get to either go enjoy a night out with some friends, or just sit home and stuff your face with cupcakes/doughnuts/spoons of peanut butter with no one to judge you. Meanwhile, the rest of us have to worry about actually doing something special for our lovers. Remember, the way to a person’s heart is through two places; however, this article only focuses on one: the stomach, of course!
Want to impress your S.O. but not exactly the culinary expert? Have no fear: here are some recipes, ranging from easy to moderately difficult, that will have them either figuratively—or literally—eating out of the palm of your hand. Or even if you are an independent Bauce, indulge and treat yourself with these awesome eats. Think ooey, gooey, chocolatey, messy: sensous eating for Valentine’s Day!
Easy: Chocolate French Toast

Advanced: Crepes with Nutella and Banana
What better way to start off this holiday than with chocolate and some sort of French pastry? (Alright, so maybe French toast isn’t exactly French, but it’s got the name in the title, so it counts!). For those who are a little bit more advanced (and possibly have a crepe pan), treat your man to a real charming breakfast with Nutella and banana crepe. (Whipped cream and powdered sugar on the side, of course.) Bon appetit!
