Creative Valentine’s Day Chocolate Recipes

281 Flares 281 Flares ×

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner it’s got me thinking all things chocolate. I love chocolate.

I didn’t always which is kind of funny. I wasn’t much of a dessert lover as a kid either. Other people would devour desserts and I’d usually grab another roll. Bread, croissants, and rolls have always been my go to dessert and still are, however nowadays they have a bit of competition.

Something changed once I had Kora & Logan. After they were born I started enjoying brownies, candy bars, and other chocolatey treats. I’m not sure if it was directly related or just from getting a bit older, but now I loooove chocolate!

The rest of my family are choco-holics too and it’s a countdown for all of us when Valentine’s is so close. That’s why I decided to put together a collection of some of my favorite Valentine’s Day chocolate recipes from around the web. These recipes area all amazing and there’s lots of hearts, pink, and red to celebrate the holiday. There’s recipes for nearly every meal of the day and desserts in between! I can’t wait to get baking and it’s the perfect excuse to make my mini-trifle recipe again too.
