We don’t know about you, but for us the idea of breakfast in bed recalls fond memories of making disastrously bad pancakes for Mom on Mother’s Day. Perhaps for this reason, the gesture feels like an act of love as simple as it is meaningful—something you can throw together even if short on time and money. Here, decadent but easy recipes you can prepare for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day—without having to forgo too much cuddle time.
Strawberry Nutella French Toast Roll-Ups
If someone brought these to us in bed, we'd marry that person immediately and never look back. Those of us who don't have a significant other to make these for should just make them for ourselves—the ultimate act of self-love. Somewhat dangerously, they take only 15 minutes to prepare.

Chocolate Chip Pancake Casserole
Unlike the other recipes on the list, this casserole takes a little bit of prep, as you need to refrigerate the pancakes overnight. The good news is that your significant other will see the pancakes in the fridge, suddenly remember it's Valentine's Day and actually get you a gift this year. Yay.

Mezcal Mary With Roasted Jalapeño And Bacon
We know what you're thinking—isn't this a little much for a Tuesday morning? Our answer is, of course, no. Worst-case scenario, you and your significant other call in sick and hang out in bed, a little tipsy, for the rest of the day. Now that is what we consider romantic. (Just don't tell our bosses we said so.)
