We don't want stuffed teddy bears. We don't need a dozen roses. We would almost be willing to do away with Valentine's Day forever if it wasn't for love. Of chocolate, that is. Valentine's Day is the one day a year when you and the people you love can eat as much chocolate as you want with no consequences. So, why waste this privilege on a cardboard box of so-so chocolate candies? Instead, make one of these decadent chocolate recipes, all of which are no harder to pull off than a trip to the candy aisle at the grocery store. Whether your special someone prefers their chocolate in the form of a fudgy bundt cake or a silky mousse, these 10 recipes are all you'll need this Valentine's Day.
