As a single girl, I’ve kind of given up on celebrating Valentine’s day. Instead I celebrate one of it’s most important elements – chocolate!!! I decided about 3 years ago that I wasn’t going to get depressed about not having someone to spoil me on Valentine’s day, I was going to spoil myself and allow myself to eat all the chocolate I wanted without feeling guilty. That was the year I made the Chocolate Griddle Cakes for breakfast, then Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars for dessert. I skipped a year when I was pregnant because chocolate wasn’t really agreeing with me during that time. Strange but true, although it probably kept me from gaining an obscene amount of weight! lol Last year I made Nutella Banana French Toast. This year I want to go all out and have chocolate with brunch, dinner, dessert and maybe even drinks! And this year I am officially giving my holiday a name – Heather’s Annual Chocopalooza!
Here’s how the menu is looking so far:
Brunch: Chocolate Waffles with Cream Cheese Drizzle and Nutella Covered Bacon (Mmmm…chocolate bacon *drool*)
Dinner: Chicken Mole
Drinks: Spanish Hot Chocolate or maybe a Chocolate Martini
Dessert: Nutella Truffles or Nigella Lawson’s Dense Chocolate Cake or S’more’s Pie
I can’t decide on dessert. What would you guys like to see?
