This valentine Day I decided to make two separate treat for kids and for my hubby. I chose chocolate cookie for my boy as he adores chocolate a lot and my hubby doesn’t have any special interest when comes to flavor so went on with the same chocolate even for the cake. I wanted to show to my family how much they mean to me and also how much I love them with these special straight from the heart treats. To make it more romantic, I cut the cake in the heart shape with the cookie cutter and it turned out lovely to look at and my hubby was really surprised and he finished off without a speck.
