Everyone deserves something sweet on Valentine’s Day, which makes it the perfect choice for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

We put the Culinary Content Network to the test to come up with wonderful one-pot meals to eat all winter long, and here are some of the highlights:

Aaron Hutch of The Hungry Hutch brings us a rich chocolate salted caramel almond cake that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Krystle Smith of The Baking Beauty brings us bright red cherry sugar cookies topped with a chocolate morsel.

This week’s winner comes from Kristie Collado, Cook Editor at The Daily Meal, who brings us super simple bite-size truffles that are way better than anything you can find in a store.

All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.

Wake your Valentine up with a batch of these simple blueberry muffins. A little bit of whole wheat flour adds a lovely nutty flavor but doesn’t make the muffins super dense. Click here to see the recipe.
