Butter's better

Need proof? Send love baked at Sweet Sally's. Buy fudge-intense Heart Brownies ($16 for six hearts), yummy streusel-topped Romantic Raspberry Squares ($16 for six squares) or fruity Raspberry Cinnamon Raisin Rugelach ($12 for eight to 10 pieces) at sweetsallys.com.


For Valentine's Day, Truffle Truffle pairs truffles (of course) with caramels for two-box "towers" dubbed Culinary Couples (e.g. apple and cinnamon caramel, cookies and milk truffle) and Hot & Spicy (e.g. spiced curry caramel, wasabi truffle). We loved the maple and bacon caramel and the beer and pretzels truffle. Buy a tower (each has eight caramels, two of each flavor, plus four truffles) for $22 at truffletruffle.com.

Cheery cherry

Marry Valentine's Day with National Cherry Month and what do you get? A chocolate-covered cherry crumb pie from the Grand Traverse Pie Co. bursting with Montmorency tart cherries from northern Michigan. Buy the 9-inch pie ($26.99) through February at gtpie.com.
