ode to chocolate: a valentine’s day recipe roundup
Food in general may win men over, but you, chocolate, are definitely the way to a woman’s heart. God knew what He was doing when He made you a super-fruit and then gave us things like coffee and chili and peanut butter and dates to mix with you and make our taste buds swoon.
The only thing, chocolate, is that you’re often paired with sugar and dairy milk and other sketchy ingredients which totally drags your healthy vibe down. So not cool.
But I’m here for you, chocolate, and created this Valentine’s Day recipe round up which gives you the starring role supported by a cast of ingredients that plays to your superfood talents and lets your antioxidant superpowers shine.

So there you have it, chocolate! Your Valentine’s Day recipe round up in a nutshell.
So many recipes you were simply made for. I can’t to see what other combinations we come up with this year. Looking back, I see we haven’t made nearly enough of pairing you with peanut butter or fresh fruit or even finding ways to sneak you in where people least expect to see you. We’ll have to remedy that, you and I.
P.S. In the comments, tell me which recipe you absolutely have to try and/or what kinds of flavor combinations you might like to see me team up with chocolate in future recipes. I have a few ideas up my sleeve, but I always love to hear from you!
