Chocolate roses, chocolate squares, chocolate bark, chocolate drizzle, and of course little chocolate hearts.
Did I mention chocolate too much? Not nearly enough when Valentine’s Day is involved!
Valentine’s Day and chocolate will always go hand in hand. This year I decided to make some decadent chocolate hearts!
Dark rich chocolate can be made with 3 ingredients. It’s magical watching the warm honey and cacao butter blend together with the powdery cacao to create a thick & creamy liquid chocolate.
There’s no limit to creativity when you make your own chocolate delicacies. I used heart-shaped molds that I picked up at a thrift store and small spice bowls to create little chocolate drops. Use whatever you have! Continue reading

Dark chocolate is definitely one of my favourite indulgences.
Is there anything better than a hot sip of coffee followed by a bite of rich dark chocolate? It immediately melts into a smooth and creamy moment of pure bliss!
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, there is no better time to make some handcrafted chocolate. What’s a more fitting way to say ‘I love you’ than with a gift of homemade Dark & Decadent Chocolate Bark?
I’m delighted to skip the expensive chocolate stores and inflated prices of Valentine’s Day merchandise. I also get to avoid all of the iffy ingredients (refined sugar, preservatives) found in store-bought chocolate.
You can get quite creative and personable with this gift. A classic tin lined with wax paper or parchment paper always makes for a pleasing package.
I’m considering heading to the craft store and picking up some clear gift bags. I’d love to secure the bag closed with some cooking twine and attach a personalized gift tag.
This bark has a mere 3 ingredients for the base. The toppings are optional and customizable to taste.
- Raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
- Raw cacao butter
