Happy Valentine's Day!Some people are just not into Valentine's Day. I am not one of those people. If you're in a relationship, its an excuse to go out to dinner and eat chocolate. If you're single, its a good excuse to drink and eat chocolate. I like the options!
I actually started celebrating last night...
Stever's makes amazing chocolate and I'm obsessed. If you're in Rochester, NY you should go immediately. The chocolates in the back are peanut butter filled chocolate hearts. Like a Reese's peanut butter cup, except 1000x better. Up front is a sponge candy heart. If you're not from Rochester, apparently you might not know what this even is. I was in college when I learned that sponge candy was not a part of everyone's life and I nearly had a heart attack. Find a way to make it a part of your life.
In the center is crispy molasses and it melts as soon as you bite into it- kind of like cotton candy that's more crunch and has a way better flavor.
Thanks mom and dad! My dad makes sure that not a V-day goes by that I don't have some Stever's!
In addition to my mom and dad… I am lucky enough to have another Valentine.
(Brian, don't you like that picture? You look good in pink!)
Also, Washington Post shared some funny DC Valentines. This one goes out to Brian:
He earned it :) (by running 2/3 of the marathon with me and keeping me from quitting/crying/crawling)
Now that the mushy stuff is out of the way, on to the chocolate.
I've put together a list of my favorite chocolate recipes. These recipes are all incredible, and have passed the Kim & Brian Taste Test.
