Valentine's Chocolate Recipes

Valentine’s Day is coming up and, even though many refer to it as the “holiday created by the card industries” it is a fun opportunity to celebrate ‘Love’ and ‘those we love’! 

A treat is defined as an event or item that is out of the ordinary and gives great pleasure. When it comes to a food, what makes it a treat is that you love it and that it isn’t something you would normally choose.

With this in mind, Valentine’s Day need not be devoid of sweets, treats indulgences and, of course chocolate. Typically, celebrating the ones you love comes a showering of all tings sweet and decadent, but at the end of the day, all of that refined sugar can leave you feeling a little less than romantic. Why not try making one of these Paleo friendly chocolate treats, sweets and desserts for you and your loved ones to enjoy instead?

These are delicious, indulgent and easy to make. You don’t actually have to make a filling, you can simply place some raspberries in the center. That’s so easy to do.
