Speaking as a person who has spent more than one anniversary and Valentine’s Day both at home, you don’t have to do anything exceptionally lavish to make the evening special. A little wine, one of your fancier dinner recipes…
Whatever you do, remember the wise words of Charles M. Schulz: All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
This little cup of dark semi-sweet mocha decadence is perfectly proportioned for two and prepare-able in a few minutes with a coffee mug and a microwave. I usually prefer to add coffee to my mocha fondues, but a half-shot of Kahlua does the trick too for this small quantity. And if you prefer your chocolate sweeter… well, fine, use the milk chocolate.
My point is chocolate. Get me?
