Whether you have a significant other or not, it’s always important to show your best girls some love on Valentine’s Day! That’s why I’ll be celebrating “Galentine’s Day” this year, because who doesn’t love a night in with lifelong friends gabbing about life and munching on delicious treats?

For my girly gathering, I decided to make things easy on myself by serving sips and snacks featuring all of the best parts of Valentine’s Day: rosé, chocolate and cheese! Whip this easy and elegant spread up for your friends and you’ll have their taste buds falling in love.
