More Sexy Chocolaty Romance, Part 2
Giving chocolate to others is an intimate form of communication, a sharing of deep, dark secrets.” ~Milton Zelman, publisher of ‘Chocolate News’
On Wednesday, the “circle time” question of the day at my work program was “What’s your favorite dessert?” I didn’t hesitate. Chocolate! Chocolate, for me, has the amazing capacity to pick me up after a bad day, wow my mouth when I want something decadent, add a simple pleasure to my meal, and make me feel more like a woman. Chocolate is the perfect treat to spice up a date night. Chocolate is the perfect springboard to add sensuality and romance to your evening. Enjoy 10 more ways to add chocolate to your date night!
- I Need S’More of You. If you have a fire pit, Mexican chimney, fireplace, or even a stove, you can do this Give Me S’more Lovin’ date night at home idea. Make this sweet “I Need S’More of You” card as an invite (free printable from The Dating Divas). Set up the essentials – graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate squares and add in a few new favorites – i.e. chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chips, chocolate graham crackers, cinnamon graham crackers, apple slices, strawberries, Reese’s peanut butter cups, raspberries, pear slices, etc. Get creative. You could even make this s’more milkshake if you’d like.
- Warm Me Up. Pack a thermos of hot chocolate to share. Bring peppermint sticks for a minty flavor or cinnamon for a spicy flavor. Dress warm. If you’re a late night owl, curl up under the stars or if you’re an early-riser, watch the sunrise. Don’t forget an extra-large cozy blanket to snuggle with your sweetheart.
- Portraits and Pasta. Enjoy a romantic Italian dinner at home and pair with making your own chocolate portraits. For an extremely decadent dessert only dinner, try this chocolate pasta with chocolate hazelnut cream sauce, white chocolate shavings, and fresh berries recipe.
- Kaleidoscopes and Kebabs. Make your own kaleidoscopes (why? Because it’s fun!). Purchase skewers and grill your favorite meats (chicken, pork, beef tips), veggies (broccoli, bell peppers, tomatoes), cheese (if you like) to serve over a plate of white steamed rice. For dessert, try these yummy brownie kebabs and drizzle with hot fudge sauce.
- Pizza and Pandora. Make this delicious brownie pizza and slow dance to your favorite songs on Pandora playlist (or other music playlist) in your living room.
- Wax on! Wax off! Get creative with this one. Make your own chocolate wax seal. Pair with watching The Karate Kid, making chocolate-scented candles, or writing each other sweet love letters.
- This Girl is On Fire! Wear something red, hot, and sexy. Pair a spicy food (such as Thai, Indian, or Mexican food) date night with these delicious flaming strawberry chocolate cupcakes.
- Hit the Trails. Make this yummy chocolate trail mix. Bundle up and head out for a late winter hike or geo-cache adventure.
- Date Night in 5 Minutes. Make chocolate pudding. Serve in crystal or fancy glass dishes. Sit on the front porch and feed each other under the stars.
- Deliciously Desirable. Serve this dangerously decadent chocolate cheesecake and challenge your spouse to a game of strip chess or checkers.
