Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding is silky smooth and creamy with a mild hazelnut flavor hiding under the chocolate. You can certainly dress this up with some lightly sweetened, whipped heavy cream that’s spiked with hazelnut liqueur.

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Heath Bits Cookies are delicious cookies with a nice peanut-butter flavor.

With crispy edges and insides that are soft and almost chewy, these are sure to become a favorite.
100% Whole Wheat Chocolate Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting are light and moist. And no one is the wiser…..unless you tell them. You can make these even healthier by using a sugar substitute and nonfat Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream.
Nutella Mascarpone Cheesecake with Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust is a rich, creamy, firm, New York-style cheesecake that delivers a subtle Nutella flavor from Nutella that is spread over the cooled crust before adding the cheesecake filling.

Lava Rocks are chocolatey, chewy delicious little morsels that are also low-fat.
Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all
