If you need a little baking inspiration, you can never go wrong with chocolate: Brownies, cookies, cakes, or any other treat — chocolate is always the answer! You can bring a little extra something to your batch of brownies by putting crumbled Oreo pieces in the batter. You can also bury your honey’s favorite candy bar in the cake batter for a sweet surprise. If you aren’t a fan of chocolate, there are plenty of other sweet options on the web that you can whip up to satisfy that sweet tooth.

Play with your food: Consider this dating and love advice. Sure, you’ve always been told not to play with your food, but it’s time to bend some rules. After all, we’re adults! Make an assortment of yummy treats and blindfold your bae. Feed them one bite at a time and have them guess which one he’s tasting or even the specific ingredients. If they get it right, then it’s your turn to be blindfolded! If you’re feeling a little adventurous on this weekend date idea, bring out your inner six-year-old and start a classic food fight. Flick a little flour their way, and before you know it, the both of you will resemble the inside of a mixing bowl. If you don’t mind the mess, it’s a fun way to pass the time while waiting for your goodies to bake.

Decorate your tasty treats: After all, icing is just a step up from Crayons. Write your baby a sweet message on a decorative cake to show them you care. Something as simple as “glad you’re mine” or the traditional “I love you” can make them smile. Afterwards, pair a glass of Sherry with your favorite dessert, and enjoy sweet conversation with each other.
