All I know is, easy appetizers for any occasion are okay in my book.

Besides, I think cherries are just great for Valentine’s Day recipes. Here are my homemade chocolate-covered cherries, which I call Homemade Cherry Bombs, a perfect Valentine’s Day dessert. Or try this easy chocolate lasagna recipe or Cherry Almond Chocolate Muffins, both perfect for Valentine’s Day.
