I love this holiday. I love the essence of it, I love the history of it, I love the chocolate of it!
When my daughters were little girls, I loved receiving their hand made cards. Now that they’re grown women, I still love receiving the texts, calls, and occasionally hand made cards. 🙂
I love the generosity of this holiday. And yes, I hear the dissent because of this over commercialized holiday, however you choose to participate in that only as much as you desire.
Being a chocolate lover and a baker, of course we have at Sweet Memories my favorite sweets. And to be frank, there are two dark desserts for this occasion that have my eye. The first are the chocolate cake truffles. Dark, rich, moist, and just the right bite size, I can give them out individually or by the box to that someone special. The others are the supreme chocolate peanut butter bites. With my all time favorite chocolate cake, rich peanut butter center and all covered in heavenly dark ganache, it is indulgent and sinfully fabulous! That, with a glass of red wine; love!
Well, sweets for the sweet are only one form of expressing that you love someone, and I encourage you to tell all the people that play a loving part in your life in one way or another I love you. Be it with that exceptional over the top, hand-made card, or flowers, or sweets, just say Happy Valentines Day!
