Red Roses and Little Mocha Kisses

Valentines came early for me this year. I woke up this morning to a very special romantic surprise from the most special man in my life. I came across roses all over the house and each one had a post it note attached with a lovely message. I had to find 12 roses in total, each one had been hidden in a different place in the house. The first rose was placed in our open fire place in the bedroom with a pre-Valentines card and inside the card there was a message with, "just to let you know, you have 11 more to find". I had so much fun finding the roses and I had the biggest smile on my face, infact I still do! It was the best thing to wake up to ;o). Who said romance was dead? I'm lucky to say it definitely lives!


Every Valentines I love to bake my hubby something special and as they say food is definitely a way to a man's heart! So after my rose hunt this morning I decided to bake up some of these gorgeous Little Mocha Kisses, filled with chocolate buttercream. These are perfect to serve with coffee after your Valentines meal. Hubby and I have a table booked at our local Italian for a Valentines meal tomorrow evening but these will be a lovely treat for when we get back!


Wishing everyone a day full of romance and love, Happy Valentines!
