A rich and decadent chocolate cake dressed up with a simple chocolate ganache. It’s perfectly elegant and you’ll never even guess it’s gluten free!

Treat your boo to a batch of these moist and tender cupcakes topped with swirls of rich chocolate buttercream. For an extra festive touch, top with candy hearts or pink and red sprinkles.

These crazy delicious molten chocolate cakes get major bonus points for being gluten free and ready in just minutes! This is the perfect last minute dessert that makes the perfect finale to a fancy dinner out.

Blood Orange Cardamom Bundt Cake


This blood orange bundt cake is the sweetest dessert around and it definitely falls into the “desserts to make for breakfast” category. If eating cake for breakfast on Vday is wrong, I don’t want to be right. This light and tender cardamom bundt is drizzled with a tart blood orange glaze that is as pretty as it is delicious. I can’t think of a more perfect way to share some love this Valentine’s Day.

Frosted Fudge Brownies


These frosted fudge brownies are sinfully delicious and make the perfect bite size treat for all of the chocolate lover’s in your life! For a truly out of this world brownie don’t forget a sprinkle of flakey sea salt on top!

Boxed Brownie Mousse Cake


This three layer brownie mousse cake is the ultimate chocolate lover’s dessert. A layer of rich chocolate mousse sandwiched between a thick, fudgy brownie and a cloud of freshly whipped cream. It’s pure chocolate heaven and then some! Make this cake and your sweet tooth will thank you.

Marbled Chocolate Bark

Skip the boxed chocolates this year and make this easy and delicious swirled chocolate bark instead. The perfect confection to give to friends, neighbors, and co-workers this Valentine’s Day. Top with edible flowers or pink and red sprinkles for a festive touch!

Making this pretty as can be chocolate bark could not be easier. Simply line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt 12 ounces of 70% dark chocolate {use the good stuff!} and 4 ounces of white chocolate separately in bowls over a double boiler. Once melted and smooth, use an offset spatula to spread the dark chocolate evenly over the parchment lined baking sheet, until about 1/4 inch thick. Next, use a spoon to place dollops of the melted white chocolate randomly across the top of the dark chocolate. Use a toothpick to swirl the white chocolate and then place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator to set. Top with edible flowers or sprinkles before chilling. To serve, just break apart the chilled bark into pieces.

Hope you found a little something {or a lots of somethings} that you can’t wait to share with your honeys this Valentine’s Day. If you’re like me and can’t decide on just one, I say make a few and treat yourself. Be sure to follow along on Instagram where we are celebrating all things chocolate all month long!
