Valentine's Day (aka chocolate appreciation day) can be a great holiday for those with a special love in their life. But don't fret if no one is taking you out to dinner. An alternative to that fancy dinner (psh) is a girl's night that includes endlessly flowing wine, chocolates, and romcom movies on Netflix. But before you go crazy, here's what around 200 calories of your favorite Valentine's Day treats actually looks like.

Gimme a break, gimme a break, gimme a break off that KitKat bar! Five precious mini pieces of KitKats clock in at around 210 calories. These wafers are a personal favorite so king size may just be the way to go regardless.

Dove Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate contains antioxidants – so it's healthy right? Eat six little squares to satisfy your 220 calories of sweets goal. Not too bad, huh?

Although its name implies three, eight of these mini marshmallow treats equals about 205 calories. Not bad at all if you are looking for a little sweet, not so high in calories treat. 

Milky Way

Five mini Milky Ways are a smooth chocolate to munch on while watching just one more episode of the Bachelor. These gooey, caramel-y chocolates clock in at 200 calories.

SweeTart Hearts

marshmallow, cookie, chocolate, candy

SweeTarts are a classic candy, especially sweeTarts in the form of a heart with cute, flirty phrases on the back. Enjoy as many as 37 of these sugary candies before reaching the 200 calorie limit.

Remember getting boxes of these with personalized messages every Valentine's Day in elementary school? Throw a "UR Cute" (or 33 if you want to hit the 200 calories mark) at your crush next time you see them to drop a little (or big) hint.  

Russell Stover Chocolate Box

This little personal box of chocolates (which includes chocolate covered coconut, caramel, and dark chocolate mousse) is 250 calories of pure goodness for the heart and the soul. Never feel guilty for finishing a box of chocolates again.

Mini Snickers

Four mini Snickers (coming to 170 calories) will give you just the right amount of nutty-chocolate flavor you need on Valentine's Day.

Right or Left Twix? Why not just go for mini Twix and call it a day. Four of these cookie-caramel chocolate bars are 200 calories. 

Hershey Kisses 

egg, blueberry

Scared you won't get kissed on Valentine's Day? Worry no more. Nine kisses contain 200 calories and are waiting for you this Valentine's Day, so don't be shy when choosing which chocolate you wanna curl up with. 

So this Valentine's Day, grab some friends, a handful of candy, a glass (or two) of wine and turn on your favorite romantic comedy. Celebrate February 14th the way it should be: with people you love and endless amounts of chocolate.
