A very Sweet Valentine's Day...

Valentine's Day started with me baking this pair of brownie hearts for my sweetie, Phil.  Boxed brownies, as I'm baking challenged, but I did make Cream Cheese Frosting from scratch.  You can't see it here, but each heart is about 6" across at it's widest part & is about 2" thick.  He was thrilled!

Then, you know it's gonna be a good day when a package with this special gift wrap arrives via UPS.
It was tough, but I waited for Phil to get home from work before I unwrapped it.  There are no chocolates to compare to See's from CA.  None.  They are THE best!
And there are no better See's Chocolates than their Dark Chocolate Lemon Truffles.  Yep...that's almost an entire pound of those yummy confections.  The one truffle that is different is because Phil tried to get a couple that were not lemon into the assortment, which you do by percentages.  He hoped for 2 of this milk chocolate truffle, but he'll have to settle for this one lonely piece.  Of course, I'll share the lemon ones...which will be rationed out very carefully as these are a once a year treat for me.  Thanks, my dear...they're as sweet as you are with just a bit of tart thrown in, too!
