My Romantic Some

They say that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. My romantic someone knows that all too well. A few weeks ago, we decided to make something special for us to enjoy together. We settled on an easy dessert recipe that quickly became a favorite for both of us.

No matter what’s on the menu for dinner, this decadent dessert always hits the spot. The combination of flavors make it perfect for a romantic treat in the evening. Rich with cocoa powder, sweet with the addition of sugar, and infused with the comforting flavors of vanilla and cinnamon, it’s a great choice when you need a little something extra to bring together the night.
