5 Chocolatey Treats Better Than a Box of Store-Bought Truffles — Comfort Food Feast

Give your valentine the gift of chocolate with homemade chocolate dessert recipes.
Brownie Tart

Listen, we can't all be the best kind of significant other on Valentine's Day. You know, the kind who plans for days, greets his or her love with roses and slaves over an open flame to cook a homemade meal. But you can do  almost that (and get a whole lot of credit for it). This year, roll up your sleeves for one of these made-with-love treats for the chocoholic in your life. They're way better than anything you'd pick up at the store.

If slicing into Ina Garten's  Brownie Tart with your love by your side isn't the best way to spend Valentine's Day, we don't know what is. Dense and gooey, it's made with only a half-cup of flour, so nothing gets in the way of the chocolate.
