Valentine’s Day Dessert: Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate…

This year I don’t get to spend Valentine’s Day with my Cookie Monster. (‘Awww…’) We live 300 miles apart so we’re having a Skype dinner date. You have to make the best of these situations! I tell you one thing that will help me forget the distance, though: chocolate.

I have many, many chocolate recipes on my blog. Here are the ones I would most want someone to make for me this Valentine’s (but I’ll have to make my own dessert this year – I’m not complaining, though!):

Pistachio Chocolate Truffles

I adore this moreish pistachio and chocolate combo. This batch makes 9 truffles, so if your loved one leaves the last truffle to you, you know it’s true love…

Salted Chocolate Tart

Need an elegant but simple tart with a record short list of ingredients? This is the one. Double the amount of chocolate ganache for a super-indulgent treat.

Tofu Chocolate Mousse

This is my take on my grandmother’s traditional chocolate mousse. Light, airy but soooo indulgent. You cannot resist this one!Vegan Chocolate Mousse How-To: Feather-light Tofu Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate Stout Cake

I made this one for St Patrick’s Day originally but it’s so moist and dark that it would make the perfect dessert for Valentine’s Day. Serve it warm with a perfect scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate dessert.b11b5-img_5648 

Slutty Brownies with a Belgian Twist

Now don’t get offended by the title! These brownies are perfect for beginner bakers. The main ingredients come from a box, and you only need to add biscuits and a few other ingredients. BAM, dessert is ready. Ooey, gooey, melty perfection. See if your significant other can resist that.4926f-img_5921 

Bourbon Biscuits Tiramisu

This is the. BEST. thing. I have ever made. With a delicious chocolate biscuit base and a smooth walnut and tofu cream this dessert is bliss in a teacup.  53ac1-img_6375

Devil’s Food Cake

Oh man. Oh man! One monumental slice of this cake actually feels pretty heavenly, not devilish at all. bbc95-collage1

Fudgy Beetroot Chocolate Cake with Pink Icing

The icing is pink. There is chocolate involved. Need we say more? No, but we do need to cut ourselves a slice, pronto.

Raw Cacao Avocado Mousse

Last but not least, the raw foodies amongst us deserve a decadent Valentine’s Day too! I regularly make this for myself, and I don’t share it. With anyone.

What are you doing or not doing for Valentine’s Day? How are you treating your loved ones - and how are you treating yourself? :)

Love and cookies,
