valentines day :: gimme your best chocolate recipe!

so, v-day is coming. i know this day feels people with strong feelings.

seems to me people either love it or hate it. maybe you like the idea, but have no one to spend it with or maybe you think it's a Hallmark created, commercial waste of time. we should love our spouses and significant others everyday. some feel it gives people permission to be jerks and then on february 14th they can atone. not cool!

some years back, hubby and i decided to make our own tradition and to make the day fun. no hallmark cards are exchanged. he does not buy me jewelry or roses.

we make lists and over a chocolate dessert of some kind, we share our lists. some lists of years past have been, "remember the time we..." and "you are an amazing dad/mom because..."

we have a wonderful time. we eat chocolate and we laugh and celebrate each other and our life together.

so, what i need is a great chocolate recipe! i need something new! anyone got any ideas for me?
bring 'em on. the more chocolatey, the better. the husband will thank you.

I do a four layer chocolate cake, with inter layer filling of fresh home made rasberry jam, the whole thing covered with a chocolate ganach.

To go with this my wife does a rasberry-white chocolate ice cream.

This combination went over very well with the under 10 set at Thanksgiving.

I found you via kitchen nut.

This recipe is not mine. But, it is one of the best chocolate cupcakes I have ever had. And they are really easy to make too!
