Because we might be romantic, but we’re also lazy AF.
It’s just a couple of weeks till Valentine’s Day; and whether you’re planning on spending it loved up, crying alone into a tub of ice-cream ’cause you’re single AF, or giving the day the ultimate eff you by getting hammered with your girlfriends in true Leslie Knope Galentine’s Day style, there’s no denying sugar and February 14 go hand-in-hand.
So regardless of whether you plan on sharing these treats with your bae, your best girlfriends or scoffing them all yourself while watching Jamie Dornan finger Dakota Johnson in a lift in the new 50 Shades Darker flick, these easy, lazy girl desserts that are so low on the effort scale it’s criminal, deserve a spot on your recipe list for the most romantic day of the year…
