True confession: I used to hate Valentine’s Day. Like seriously disliked it. Every year I’d set unrealistic expectations about the silly holiday and always, always end up disappointed.

It wasn’t until after I was married that my ideals and expectations about Valentine’s Day changed. How precious and blessed am I to be loved by a man who adores and cherishes me and our girls – every day.

Did I mention he brings me bacon too? Yes, he came home Tuesday with flowers, chocolate, and 6 packages of bacon (it was on sale).

I think I’ll keep him.

I love Valentine’s Day now. It’s hard not to enjoy it in this house with two little girls. We are all about frilly dresses, hearts, flowers, unicorns, sparkles, and anything else girlie (which includes Valentine’s Day).

Both my girls love chocolate. A few weeks ago I found some heart shaped chocolate molds, and decided to make them some chocolates as a Valentine’s Day treat. They turned out great, and are super simple to make.

Quick & Easy 2-Ingredient Chocolates:
Yields about 24 one-inch chocolates

10 ounces Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips
2 tablespoons coconut oil

Some possible add-ins:
chopped nuts
dried or freeze dried fruit
coconut
spices (such as curry powder, ginger, cinnamon, etc.)
bacon bits
other extracts or flavorings (like peppermint extract, orange extract, etc)
ground coffee beans
heat (like crushed red chili flakes, chipotle powder, cayenne, etc.)

  1. Place the ingredients in a large microwave safe bowl, and microwave on high for 30 seconds and then stir. Keep repeating this step until all of the chocolate is completely melted (you could also melt the chocolate and coconut oil over a double broiler).
  2. Stir in add-ins if any are desired.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate into the desired chocolate molds and then place in the freezer to harden. Remove chocolates from the molds and store in an airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator until ready to serve.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine’s Day!
xoxo,

    Wow! how simple! Two of my grandkids and I are lactose intolerant and one granddaughter has a casein allergy. We use Enjoy Life chocolates all the time. I’m so making these for the kids – just because I love them! (I have the heart molds, too.)

    I made chocolates for my co-workers and Pastors for Christmas. My family also enjoyed a few of them too. I made a dark chocolate with unsweetened coconut and raisins, a dark chocolate with triple nuts(cashews, walnuts and almonds) a white chocolate with Reeses peanut butter cups and a white chocolate with dried cranberries and almonds. They were all delicious! And the best part so easy. I would do it again. Some people thought they were from a gourmet shop, no just my humble abode!! Have a wonderful day!
