What do you want for Valentine's Day? A box of chocolates? A fancy-schmany dinner out on the town? A massage? Personally, I want my husband to give me two things: a Valentine's Day card -- he'll deny it, but he's got a real knack for writing love notes -- and Sprinkles' XOX box of Valentine's Day cupcakes. I know some people might be over the cupcake trend, but I'll always be a fan of Sprinkles. Their chocolate cupcake with milk chocolate frosting and jimmies has rocked my dessert world for years, and the Chai tea latte and pumpkin spice seasonal cupcake rank a close second and third. So it's only appropriate that I want to celebrate a sweet holiday with a box of Sprinkles cupcakes, and lucky for me they have a limited-time Valentine's Day "XOX" box filled to the brim with deliciousness.

For $39/box, you get a dozen cupcakes -- a great combo of red velvet, chocolate marshmallow, dark chocolate and vanilla cupcakes -- topped with Sprinkles' signature icing (how do they get it so smooth?) and X's, O's and heart sugar decorations. Each box is sealed with an XOX Kisses and Cupcakes sticker. Also, be forewarned that Sprinkles is spicing up their classic red velvet to make it a red HOT velvet topped with spicy cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Sounds right up my spice-addicted alley. Are you listening, honey??
