If Valentine's Day had an official food, it would, of course, be CHOCOLATE! While it's fun to give (and get!) a box of chocolates, it's even more fun to find a reason to spend time in the kitchen together making a special Valentine's Day dessert.
After all, the best gift you can give is your time and attention. Plus chocolate.
We've got five ways to bring chocolate into your kitchen this Valentine's Day — or any day, TBH!
Hot Cocoa Bomb Kits
You could buy premade cocoa bombs, but why not make them yourself? It's twice the fun! We love this kit from I'm The Chef Too, which has a great deal right now on CerftifiKID!
Each large Hot Cocoa Bomb DIY kit includes everything you need for this fun (and yummy!) activity, including a reusable sphere mold that makes three large hot cocoa bombs at a time!
Just add hot milk and watch your bomb melt away, leaving you with a delicious surprise. Choose from two kits: The Teddy Bear Kit creates a variety of love bears, and the Winter Friends Kit makes an adorable snowman, polar bear, and reindeer.
Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream
Your kids love hot chocolate. They love ice cream. Why not put them together?
Our recipe for Frozen Hot Chocolate Chip "Ice Cream" uses just four ingredients to create a delicious chocolatey treat. Bonus: No ice cream maker required!
Brownie Batter Cheeseball
A chocolate brownie cheeseball? Well, there you go. That's Valentine's Day breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Boom!
We're slightly obsessed with this amazing recipe from Chelsea's Messy Apron. She's speaking our love language. Since this is a no-bake dessert, it's perfect for even the littlest of kitchen helpers to offer an assist!
White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
Our recipe for White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake is perfect for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or any special occasion.
The only thing better than how it tastes — which is ah-maz-ing — is that it's prepared in your slow cooker, meaning less work for you!
Healthy Chocolate Mousse
Healthy chocolate mousse? Yep. It's all about one secret ingredient.
Our recipe for Secret Ingredient Chocolate Mousse takes just five minutes and five ingredients to prepare — including a whole avocado!
What shows your love for your family more than giving them a sweet and creamy delicious dessert that includes all the nutrients of an avocado? Now that's true love.
