Valentine’s Day Homemade Chocolate Dessert Ideas

February 12, 2010

If there’s a certain treat that can be associated with Valentine’s Day, then that would be chocolate. Almost everyone love chocolate and in the day of the hearts, chocolate is clearly the number one giveaway treat for your loved one. So in this Valentine’s, make it a little bit more special by instead of buying a box of them chocolates, create some of these treats yourself at home.

Contrary to popular belief, a little bit of chocolate is actually good for the health. Now, before you get hysterical in buying, let me clarify that statement first. Dark chocolate is the healthy chocolate type. It’s full of good things like antioxidants that help in maintaining a well-rounded body. With that said, treating yourself with a little dark chocolate each day definitely has a beneficial effect.

Be sure to relay this information to your loved one on Valentine’s Day, that as long as you buy dark chocolate against other chocolate types, they can eat these sweets without feeling even a little bit of guilt. That’s why in making some homemade valentine chocolate desserts as Valentine’s food, it’s a good point to use dark chocolate for you to enjoy both a healthy and sweet event.

Chocolate lava cakes are a definite win when it comes to Valentine’s desserts. If you don’t know this recipe yet, like the name implies, it’s a cake wherein when you cut into the surface, the yummy and sweet chocolate runs out of the center as a great surprise. Valentine’s food must be fun too, and to add more to that fun, try putting hearts on each one of the cakes by using powdered sugar and stencil for form.

Making homemade chocolate desserts for Valentine’s is honestly quite hard, but that’s what makes it very special. When you are trying to melt valentine chocolate, it’s always good to remember a few points in order to make it right. Those experienced with chocolate all had their share of mistakes in preparation. For example, in your hopes of melting the chocolate faster, turning the burner on high will not really accomplish this task. Even adding water or swirling the chocolate around won’t finish the work faster. The only thing you’ll get is a bit of disappointment, more sweat from work and a very expensive mess around the kitchen, which is something you really won’t want in your romantic day.
