This Valentine’s Day I decided to change things up and add an edible treat to my list of Valentine’s Day gifts. {A gift we both can enjoy? I am totally behind that!}. My husband likes all types of sweets though, so finding the right recipe for him was #WonderfullyComplicated.  The dessert winner… a Chocolate Layer Cake made with Scharffen Berger chocolate.

Not usually one to bake, I decided to go all out and bake the whole thing from scratch, from the cake to the frosting. Scharffen Berger’s website had the whole recipe {click here} which uses their 99% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate. The end product was seriously A-MAZING {have you seen the movie Matilda? It’s like the chocolate cake in the movie, no joke, huge!}. So over the top in fact that it was perfect for the whole family to feast on! I would call this a chocolate Valentine’s success!

This Valentine’s Day I highly recommend ditching the boxed chocolates and going the home-made route. You won’t dissapoint! And need a complimentary Valentine’s cocktail? Be sure to check out this FH section!
