The way to the heart is through the stomach, or so the saying goes. And who wouldn't take chocolatey brownies or soft sugar cookies over roses on Valentine's Day? We searched the web looking for the cutest, yummiest Valentine's Day treats to share with family and friends. Here's what we found.

Forget conversation hearts. Kelsey Nixon puts her Valentine's Day message on a batch of brightly colored sugar cookies (pictured above). Her recipe results in soft and cake-y cookies.

We all know what Rice Krispies Treats taste like. Now imagine them dipped in chocolate. Joy the Baker does just that, and adds "snap, crackle, pop" to Valentine's Day.

Bake a batch of heart-shaped cookies and enlist your honey's help in decorating. Zoe Bakes shares her recipe for lemon-y shortbread cookies frosted with lemon icing. Delicious!

Or serve Zoe's heart-shaped chocolate cake as the follow up to a romantic meal for two.

While these bars aren't heart shaped, they are irresistible. Jamie at My Baking Addiction adds a festive layer of pink to classic Nanaimo Bars.

Food Network shares a step-by-step for creating cute sugar cookie sandwiches. The filling is a delicious pomegranate-flavored cream cheese frosting.

The idea for heart-shaped doughnuts comes courtesy Kathy from Cooking on the Side. Try it with your favorite cake doughnut recipe.

Susan from Diamonds for Desserts adds a cute touch for Valentine's Day to her favorite brownie recipe (she's a fan of chewy!).
