The fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Cliche? Maybe. But most cliches find their roots in truth, and this one is no different. In case you haven’t heard, Valentine’s Day is sneaking up — who are we kidding? Of course you’ve heard. And you’ve got it under good word that he went to Midtown Jewelers to buy something shiny, so the least you can do is make him dinner: Steak, asparagus, baked potato. All of his favorites.

And dessert. That’s a bit trickier. Cookies, or cake, or cheesecake? It has to be just perfect, and you’re just not sure what to make: That perfect dessert that will leave him hungry for more.

Well, that’s where we come in. Your favorite Fairfax, VA event caterers put our expert-level Pinteresting skills to use, and found the perfect Valentine’s dessert to delight the man in your life on the lovey-doviest day of the year.
