Charismatic Valentines' Treats

Valentines’ Day is coming around the corner, and stores are embellished with hearts while the temporary chocolate stands at the malls are filled with long lines. Chocolate, a traditional gift that lovers and friends exchange with each other, originated from East Mexico by the Olmec civilization over 3000 years ago. But the stereotypical gift of chocolate bites out of heart-shaped boxes are becoming obsolete and lacking creativity. Check out these fun and unique homemade “chocolate” recipes:

1. Chocolate Chip Cookie Lollipop
