Valentine Day Chocolate Recipes
"Say I love you with Valentines chocolate"
Valentine Day Chocolate is always a winner, lets face it very few people celebrate this day without chocolate and if they do then they should!
Why not this year make your own Valentines chocolate delights. They don't have to be difficult, what's important is that you made them yourself. Personal effort will be appreciated alot more than a commercial box of chocolates.
So how does a chocolate cake become a chocolate Valentines cake - bake it in a heart shaped tin, simple. You can use the same idea for brownies and muffins. Use pink icing and heart shaped sprinkles to decorate - easy.
If you love decorating cakes then I hope this Valentines Day Heart shaped cake inspires you to make one yourself this Valentines Day.
I sculptured the chocolate cake from a 9" square then layered and coated it in dark chocolate ganache. It is covered in rolled fondant and the detail painted in edible gold.
