There's no better way to say "I love you" than with a delightful, decadent chocolate dessert. But better than any box of store-bought bonbons is a homemade dessert or treat to share. Whether you enjoy it with your partner, the family, or a group of friends is up to you, but we're offering a stellar selection of cacao recipes just right for the holiday of love. There are classic heart-shaped cookies and decadent raspberry-filled whoopee pies (of course, we have more heart-shaped ways to express your affection if your significant other isn't a chocolate lover), as well as cupcakes that aren't just cute—they're sophisticated and heartfelt, too. If your heart desires a dessert to be shared, try a brownie cake or a mousse pie—or go with bite-sized treats like handmade truffles or chocolate-peanut butter cups. Package them in a special box or present them on a gilded platter—either way, your Valentine is sure to swoon over these heartfelt creations.
