A Chocolate Themed (Single) Love Affair

My housemates and I have been ready for Valentine’s Day ever since we tacked up a calendar on our kitchen wall and divvied up dates for potluck dinners, cuisine-theme nights, and bonding brunches. It was unanimous that every dish we make for Valentine’s Day would involve chocolate – from the appetizer to the entrée, right through and through to the drinks and the desserts.

Check out a few options we’ve been looking into below for the menu! And if you want to come hang out on V-Day and have a chocolate-induced food coma with us, e-mail me so we can make enough food for extra guests.
