When I think of Valentine’s Day, I tend to skip over the lovey-dovey, romantic stuff and instead focus on the main reason to truly love this holiday: Chocolate. With its myriad of tastes and textures, it’s hard not to fall for all of the ways it can make you smile. From smoothies to truffles, cakes to a cozy drink, and so much more, chocolate is my main squeeze in making decadent desserts that are simply meant for this holiday.
All of these recipes make wonderful gifts for your sweetheart, friends, or family this February 14. See how we would give them to our favorite people below. Happy chocolate, err, Valentine’s Day!
