It’s almost that time of year again, where everything is decorated pink and red, the level of PDA shoots through the roof, and very good restaurant menus are suspended for the dreaded V-Day prix fixe. If you really want to impress your Valentine, skip the Walgreens Teddy Bear and that faux-velvet-covered box of chocolates and opt for one of these 6 super-stylish and deliciously crafted sweets. Show your sweetheart that you really care (and that you know your food).
