You may have taken a breather from indulgences during January, but the official month of love (and chocolate!) is upon us. You could show up to your sweetheart’s with a cellophane-wrapped box of mystery chocolates, or you could head to the kitchen and whip up your own chocolate-enrobed treat and let the proverbial Cupid’s arrow fly.

These recipes run the gamut from dark and fudgy to spicy and crisp – let your heart be your guide.

I developed a special sugar free brownie recipe that I make often. Instead of sugar I use erythritol that they are kind enough to order for me at Whole Foods. I love the idea of "better-for-you" desserts, so that I can have my cake (or brownie) and eat it to...and feel good about it!

There is an erythritol sweetener called, "ZSweet" http://www.zsweet.com/ which Whole Foods only occasionally carries, when there is enough shelf space. Its granular texture imitates sugar almost identically and it comes in a pouch or a box of individual packets. It's great on and in everything.

Pretzels dipped in nutella, and peanuts , I try to get some of the salt off first. , or Frozen Banana's dipped in either melted choc. you make or nutella and then dip in whatever type of nuts you like , better yet mixed nuts. IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR YOU HAVE TO EAT CHOCOLATE, SO YOU WALK A FEW EXTRA MILES, IT'S WORTH !!! My Dad owned a Pastry Shop he made the best chocolate mouse cake ever, I could eat the entire cake by myself. EXTRA INFO: THE BEST ICE CREAM IN THE WORLD IS IN ITALY, OR IF YOU COME A PLACE THAT MAKES IT. BUT BELIEVE ME ITALY IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO VISIT!
