Chocolate Love Notes

chocolate love notes_2

Admittedly, I’m partial to Valentine’s day. While I don’t believe in over the top gestures, and think that paying exorbitant prices for mediocre meals is unnecessary, I do like to celebrate it in small ways. Growing up, and well into our adult years, my grandparents always sent us Valentine’s Day cards with a crisp 10$ bill tucked inside. My mom, to this day, still gives her full-grown children a festive card and a bag full of candy. And one of my fondest memories dates back to one of our very first Valentine’s days when Justin surprised me with a heart-shaped cake, complete with blush pink frosting, that he made himself. It was absolutely the sweetest thing, and still makes me smile. Needless to say, I’m always on the hunt for small, yet meaningful, gestures that show my loved ones I care. Which is why I love the idea of the chocolate love note. It takes no time at all to whip them together, and tucking them into your daughters hot chocolate, or tossing a few on top of your boyfriend’s pancakes, makes for the loveliest way to commemorate the day.

Ingredients
  1. 4 oz. good quality semi-sweet chocolate (I used Bakers)
  2. A piping bag with a small plain tip (or a ziploc bag with the tiniest corner cut out)
  3. A parchment lined cookie sheet
Instructions
  1. Melt your chocolate over a double-boiler (or in the microwave)
  2. Let cool for 5-10 minutes
  3. Fill your piping bag (this is a great trick), and pipe words, symbols, hearts, figures, whatever your heart desires onto your parchment lined cookie sheet.
  4. Place in freezer to harden, and use on top of everything and everything on Valentine's day
Notes
  1. If you're a little rusty, try practicing with a few lines and shapes. Have fun with it. Whatever doesn't work can always be melted back down.
