Chocolates are always associated with love, and I guess it’s just perfect to make a recipe such as this one.

It could be a way of celebrating an anniversary with a loved one, or even just a way of saying ‘I love you’ in the simplest act possible. I’ve always found it romantic to be given such a cake by someone, even by just a friend, so maybe, you would want to receive the same offering?
