The Chocolate

If there ever was a time to splurge on high-quality chocolate, this is that moment. Aim for the best bittersweet chocolate you can find, as it'll be the primary canvas upon which you scatter a colorful array of toppings, so you want that canvas to be as pleasing to the palate as possible.

The Toppings

Here comes the creative part! Add on your candies, sprinkles, pretzels, or whatever else you want! Don't be afraid to think outside the box. Sour candies are fun, and salted treats like pretzels balance the sweetness well. Consider your color scheme, too, for a pleasing appearance.

The Candy Melts

The final touch to your confectionery canvas? A swift drizzle of pink candy melts that lends a pop of color to your Valentine's Day dessert dream. You can purchase candy melts in large grocery stores or craft stores, or find every color of the rainbow by purchasing them online. Again, feel free to switch out the pink for any color that you love or one that coordinates with your design.
