I made so many Valentine's treats this year that I actually didn't get around to posting these in time for Valentine's Day!
Honestly, I had thought I was done. I made chocolate covered pretzels, brownies, chocolate-covered heart-shaped raspberry marshmallows, and chocolate heart-shaped cookies. I thought I went so overboard, in fact, that I didn't even bring them all to B. So I definitely didn't think I needed anything else. But then while scrolling through some websites or blogs (I honestly don't remember which), I came across some "lovebugs." I thought they were cute. But I didn't do much with the idea. Until I remembered that I had a lady bug chocolate mold!
So I thought it was fate, or at least something like fate, that I had the lady bug mold AND pink chocolate at home (I was going to make some pink love bugs for Valentine's Day)....but then I saw that I had red chocolate in the fridge, and I just knew I had to make them! It really was fate!
So after all the roses and chocolate for Valentine's Day have faded, I had these sweet little chocolate lovebugs to give to my Valentine!
* I used dark chocolate for the spots, eyes, and lines. If I had powdered food coloring, I would've dyed the dark chocolate black, but I didn't, and I still think they turned out fine! *
