We realize that we had forgotten to buy chocolate for dessert for Valentine's Day.
Option 1) drive 25km to the nearest store, pay through the nose for mediocre chocolate, drive home. NOPE.
Option 2) no chocolate. Enh, it's an option, but not really a fun/pleasant one.
Option 3) say "hey child, wanna make chocolate squares for Valentine's Day?", melt a half cup of chocolate, pour it into the bottom of silicone muffin tins in little wafer shapes, and let the toddler add toppings of her choice (walnuts, mostly. She loves walnuts). Didn't use anything special, everyone had chocolate, and it was a lovely activity... and we didn't have to leave the house or drive anywhere, so no money spent! :)
