Valentine day is coming up in a few days and we thought to offer a nice little, just for lovers, recipe.

Cupid and chocolate are practically inseparable (there are also diamonds … but it is less digestible ….. especially for the walet). With this recipe, you can easily conquer or re-conquer the heart of your loved one. Preparation is very fast and requires only a limited number of ingredients to produce these little bites of chocolate bliss.

The recipe is very simple, it can be easily customized it to suit your tastes. For example, adding a little cayenne pepper (to add a touch of spice to the party) in the dough or replacing hazelnuts, raspberry and Nutella by beautiful pecan nuts or dark chocolate pieces.

Happy Valentine’s day to all lovers!
