Share romantic wishes with your guests in homemade chocolate cookies. Hand-write or photocopy lines from classic love poems, or make up your own fortunes; the strips of paper should be about 6-inches-long and a little less than a 1/2-inch wide. The cookies, French tuiles with cocoa powder, are only flexible enough to shape for a few minutes once they come out of the oven: Slide an offset spatula under a cookie, and flip it over. Lay a fortune across the cookie and form into a loose cylinder with the fortune inside. Press your finger into the center of the roll, and bring the ends together with your other hand.
