5 Chocolate Treats for Valentine's Day

5 Chocolate Treats for Valentine's Day

The Hood Answer Mom, Elizabeth M. Ward, M.S., R.D.

I can’t help myself. When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of chocolate. And when I say chocolate, I mean every form of chocolate I can lay my hands on, from beverages to baked goods. I even eat chocolate for breakfast! 

My latest chocolate creation, Frozen Chocolate Mousse, is made with Hood Cream. It’s easy to prepare, not overly sweet, and has just enough chocolate to satisfy a craving! It’s amazing how delicious this dessert is, considering it uses just a few ingredients. I garnish it with toasted coconut, whipped cream, and fresh raspberries, but you can dress it up any way you like. 

Here are some other chocolate recipes to enjoy!

Double Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes 

Did someone say double the chocolate? Sign me up! Hood Sour Cream and Hood Milk are what keep these cupcakes rich, moist, and irresistible. Make them ahead and freeze. When you’re ready to serve, frost the cupcakes and you’re good to go! 

Chocolate Raspberry Mini Tarts

One of the easiest recipes ever, and one of the cutest desserts you’ll to make. You just fill store-bought mini phyllo cups with a creamy chocolate combination made with only two ingredients. Check out the recipe to see which Hood product is the secret to this recipe’s success! 

Mexican Hot Chocolate 

I’m dreaming of spring, but let’s face it: It’s still winter. There’s no better way to take the chill out of winter than with a cup of hot chocolate. But you don’t want just any old hot chocolate drink! Mexican Hot Chocolate, made with Simply Smart Milk, gets its warmth from cayenne pepper and cinnamon. I highly recommend giving it a try. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl 

Is there a better flavor combination than chocolate and peanut butter? (I don’t think so!)  Simply Smart Fat Free Chocolate Milk is the basis for this meal that makes eating chocolate for breakfast perfectly acceptable.  With more than 20 grams of protein, 10 grams of fiber, 1 ½ servings of fruit, and as much calcium as a glass of milk, it will be hard to pass up this super bowl of chocolaty goodness.
