With Valentine’s Day coming up, now is the time to plan gifts and special treats for your loved ones. For those of us who enjoy baking, the idea of making baked goods and sweet treats from scratch may seem like an excellent, thoughtful way to show appreciation for our family members, loved ones, and friends. Solid chocolate, chocolate-covered nuts, conversation hearts, and other seasonal favorites are a tasty, fun addition to any Valentine’s Day dessert. These three ideas can help you incorporate Wockenfuss classics into your Valentine’s Day plans.
Craft a Rich Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake
This strawberry chocolate mousse cake is an ambitious undertaking for the amateur baker, but it can make an impressive display when pulled off correctly. A crushed chocolate cookie base supports an airy chocolate mousse, and a smooth, shiny ganache envelops the whole thing. Consider using Wockenfuss breakup chocolate for the mousse, and garnish with our chocolate-covered strawberries, milk chocolate nonpareil hearts, or your loved one’s favorite Wockenfuss treat.
Transform Solid Chocolate Into Valentine’s Day Bark
If you’re looking for a fun and festive project to work on with your kids, transform some of our breakup chocolate into Valentine’s Day bark. Melt some solid chocolate and set out a buffet of candies, sprinkles, and other sweets. Spread the melted chocolate on a baking sheet lined with wax paper, and let your kids cover their slabs of bark with their own combination of chocolate-covered pretzels, conversation hearts, Valentine gummi bears, and more. If you’re looking for a more grown-up version (and you don’t want to put in the work), you can always order some almond or cashew bark from Wockenfuss!
Stay Toasty With Homemade Hot Chocolate
Powdered hot chocolate mix gets the job done, but nothing beats a rich, silky, homemade hot chocolate made with melted solid chocolate. Fill a saucepan with four cups of milk, ¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, and ½ cup of chopped breakup chocolate. Heat over medium heat and whisk frequently until the mixture is warm and the chocolate has melted completely. Serve immediately. For a deeper flavor, add some espresso, cinnamon, peppermint extract, or vanilla. Create a trendy, decadent drink by piling on some whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and sprinkles. Serve with a milk chocolate nonpareil heart pop, chocolate-covered strawberry, or other chocolate treat to garnish.
