Valentine Treats!

Are you looking for some chocolatey goodness to share with the ones you love this Valentine's Day that doesn't break the bank? Why not whip up some of these really easy recipes?

The recipe makes six of the most delicious, decadent truffles you'll ever eat. You don't have to use Kaluah at all, either. Feel free to switch it up or omit it altogether.

Don't let the idea of orange and chocolate scare you off. You can skip the orange flavor and just add vanilla instead. The dark chocolate M&Ms are a must, though!

Chocolate Candy Crinkles

A brownie-like crinkle cookie topped with Hershey's kisses or hugs. These recipe makes a bunch of smallish sized cookies, perfect for gift giving.

One of my most popular recipes on this site. They converted Hubs, who doesn't like Rice Krispie squares, into someone who can devour half a pan of these babies. If you want to get extra sinful, sandwich them with your favorite ice cream.

Chocolate Fondue

This is so easy you'll never believe it-just melt some chocolate with whipped cream, add some liqueur if you want, keep it warm, and serve with fruit, angel food cake, and pretzels. Your family will think they have died and gone to heaven.

Cappuccino Cheesecake Brownies

For the coffee and chocolate lover, this combines a rich brownie bottom with a creamy, coffee cheesecake topping.

Last but not least, the best chocolate cupcake I've ever made from scratch. (swoon) I considered not listing it because this photo is my Twitter avatar, readers have made them and posted about it, I've raved about them, made multiple batches, and I'd think you guys would be sick of them by now. I just can't leave them out because to me they SO say Valentine's day and are a perfect thing to send in your kid's classroom. Chocolate lovers will worship the ground you walk on. Promise. It's been tested.
