Homemade Valentine's Chocolate

I found this Amazing recipe for 3 Ingredient Dark Chocolate that is Vegan, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Healthy, and Super Easy To Make!
I decided to try it out and make some Peanut Butter Cups, and some Coconut Clusters for my Fiance and I to share for Valentine's Day.

I usually don't follow other people's recipes, but rather make up my own, but this time I followed the recipe and I am going to share it with you.
Chocolate Covered Katie This Blogger makes Vegan Desserts that are simply amazing, as well as simple. I am so glad I found all her recipes, and I am so excited to try more of them.
Anyway, I whipped up two batches of this chocolate, and I made one batch into Peanut Butter Cups using small scoops of Natural Unsalted Peanut Butter. And the Other Batch I added in some Shredded Coconut and formed into little coconut cluster lumps.
I am so happy with how they came out, The peanut Butter cups look so nice. I think I'll roll the clusters next time to make them into truffles because they look a little unrefined he way I made them. oops. Oh well, I'm happy with how that taste, and that's really all that matters.
I like how shiny the chocolate turned out, but you have to keep it in the refrigerator or the freezer for it to fully harden. Not that it's a problem with me, I like melty chocolate, so I usually warm up my candy a little before eating it anyway.
I had some empty heart tins form Valentine's Past, so I washed the biggest one out and put my homemade chocolate's inside. I think they look more Valentine-y this way. ;)
 It looks very Valentine-y and I didn't have to waste any money on specialized wrapping paper.

I'm so excited for tomorrow. I'm still getting over a bad cold, and my fiance just got the bad cold, so we are just going to spend the day together relaxing on the sofa and watching a movie and drinking tea together. We will share some tasty homemade chocolates, and I'm planning on making a Valentine's Day Themed Lunch Bento, and a Romantic Dinner.
I hope you all have a wonderful Day!
