Many people think of Valentine’s Day as the love-themed holiday. They associate it with romance and sappy movies and couples and candlelit dinners. But when I think of Valentine’s Day, only one thing comes to mind – and that thing is chocolate.
To me, this is just another food-centric holiday – just another excuse to bake your little heart out and eat until you’re pregnant with food quintuplets, regardless of your relationship status.
So when you do indulge this Valentine’s Day, and you KNOW you will, why settle for a lame box of store-bought chocolates just like every other year? Instead, try something new and check out these ah-mazing desserts.
