My oh my! There has to be chocolate somewhere in your Valentine's celebration, right? I made molten chocolate cakes for the first time and adapted the recipe from Epicurious. What did I change? I dropped the almond extract, used Hershey Special Dark cocoa powder and Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips and topped the individual masterpieces with a simple scoop of vanilla ice cream, instead of homemade coffee whipped cream. It was delicious!
And of course, I crafted and made a set of heart-topped picks to dress up dessert and reinforce the Valentine spirit. Just find some cute scrapbook paper and "punch" out hearts with a Martha Stewart heart craft punch. Then glue them back-to-back onto toothpicks and Voila! A custom pick worthy of the 12 Days of Valentine's Day.
Happy Day 9: Make sure to incorporate some chocolate into your week.
