Just a touch of chocolate is all you need to remind that special someone how you feel. This Valentine’s Day, enjoy any of these scrumptious chocolate delights morning, noon or night.
Start Valentine’s Day with chocolate-filled French toast. Even your kid will be shocked you served chocolate for breakfast! With only 1 teaspoon of bittersweet chocolate chips per serving, a little goes a long way.
Instead of the traditional chocolate-covered strawberries, make these chocolate-dipped clementines for your loved ones. They’ll be thankful for a delicious treat with only 44 calories per serving.

Go savory with your chocolate in this roast beef recipe. Unsweetened natural cocoa powder is the secret ingredient.

Chocolate + cream cheese = the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert! Keep calories in check by using muffin tins to portion each one out.
Cozy up to a cup of hot cocoa before bed. Want to kick it up a notch? Spike it with a splash of Kahlua or Bailey’s.
