If Valentine's Day had an official food it would, of course, be Chocolate! While it's fun to give and also get a box of chocolates, it's even more fun to find a reason to spend time in the kitchen together making a special Valentine's Day dessert. After all, the best gift you can give is your time and attention. Plus who doesn't love chocolate? Your family and of course you will enjoy these sweet chocolaty treats just in time for Valentine's Day!

Chocolate Fudge

The only thing more amazing than its taste is how easy this four-ingredient chocolate fudge from Macaroni Kid EATS editor Charlotte Linde is to make.

Avocado chocolate mousse?

It takes just five minutes and just three ingredients — including a whole avocado! What shows your love for your family more than giving them a sweet and creamy delicious dessert that includes all the nutrients of an avocado? Now that's true love.
