Chocolate is the universal language of love and to many, is the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Not only is it great tasting, but also stimulating to the senses. In fact, chocolate releases chemicals that increase energy and desire levels. For generations after generations, chocolate has been the go-to method to express love. While you can opt for store-bought chocolate goodies, making your own will add that personal touch to your valentine's gift. So, this Valentine's Day, win the heart of your loved ones by making a decadent dessert with chocolates!



2 cups milk chocolate

½ cup unsalted butter

2/3 cup whipping cream

4 eggs

1/3 cup sugar

A pinch of salt

Chocolate powder for garnish


In a bowl, add butter, and chopped chocolates and melt the two using a double-boiler. Add in sugar while still warm and mix until combined. Then, add whipping cream and continue to mix. Once fully combined, add a pinch of salt, and add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.

Once the mixture is homogenous, pour it into a pan greased and lined with a baking sheet. Put this into a larger dish and fill it half-way up with warm water. Bake at 160°C for 30 minutes. Once fully baked, let it cool at room temperature before flipping it out. You can dust it with chocolate powder for garnish.



1-pound baked chocolate cake

½ cup chocolate buttercream

1 cup milk chocolate

1 cup white chocolate

Sprinkles for decoration


Use a day-old chocolate cake and crumble it. Once done, add buttercream one spoon at a time and mix in with your fingers. Continue doing this until the chocolate cake mix is moist enough to hold a ball. After this, form the chocolate balls and leave them in the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolates in your oven and stir until it is smooth. Insert a lollipop stick into each cake pop and then dip it in the molten chocolate, either white or milk. Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle confetti over the top for a prettier outcome and they are ready!
