Cupid’s Arrow Is Chocolate


Baking love is what I call this decadent, sensual, small-batch dessert. It’s perfect to make on Valentine’s Day. When my book, Small-Bath Baking for Chocolate Lovers, published a few years ago, lifestyle, travel, and food writer/blogger, Gwen Patresi, wrote a lovely post about one of my own favorite recipes in the book: Warm Chocolate Truffle Cakes with Brandied Cherries. As she says, “This is one of the easier and best desserts you will ever prepare.”

And she describes the two individual servings this way: “While I only indulged in a small portion of the moist and mousse-like gem, it satisfied my craving for something totally luscious, rich, and chocolatey.  These cakes are not molten cakes, so they will not have a gusher of hot chocolate lava ooze from their center when you first delve into the cake.  Rather, they have a truffle-like consistency that is velvety and completely decadent.” The cookbook has more than 150 little chocolate dessert gems, and since each recipe makes just 2 servings each, you can have your cakes and eat them too. Small-Batch Baking and Small-Batch Baking For Chocolate Lovers are both available at
