Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Filling

1. Chocolate Cake 

When it comes to chocolate cake, the moist and fudgy Portillo’s cake is one of the best.

This restaurant from Chicago is well-known for hot dogs, but its chocolate cake also does not disappoint. 

With this copycat recipe, you won’t need to travel very far to have a taste.

Just head to the kitchen and make it yourself! Five ingredients and one bowl are all you’ll need. 

2. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Nothing screams romance more than chocolate-covered strawberries. I don’t know what it is, but seeing these stunning beauties never fails to put a smile on my face.

Why buy an expensive box when you can make it yourself for over half the price?

It’s just a matter of dipping fresh strawberries in melted chocolate. It’s so easy anyone can do it.

Be sure to use a high-quality chocolate, like Ghirardelli or Baker’s baking chocolate, for best results.

3. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownies

Taking the previous entry one notch higher is this recipe for chocolate-covered strawberry brownies. It’s the ultimate decadence!

Fresh strawberries are sandwiched in between a fudgy brownie and a decadent chocolate ganache.

How luxurious! It may sound complicated, but it’s almost effortless to make.

4. Shortbread Heart-Shaped Cookies

What better way is there to show someone you care by literally giving them your heart? When I say heart, I mean these heart-shaped cookies.

They’re quick and easy shortbread cookies shaped like a heart but without the need for a cookie-cutter. How cool is that?

Covered with red, pink, and white sprinkles, they’re the perfect Valentine’s present.

5. Valentine’s Day White and Milk Chocolate Conversation Heart Bark Recipe

I was once under the impression that chocolate bark requires serious chocolate-making skills.

Boy, was I wrong. The moment I realized it, I started making chocolate bark all the time.

Seriously, it’s even easier than boiling water.

You’ll simply melt chocolate in a microwave, spread it onto a layer of parchment paper, and sprinkle your favorite toppings on top.

I’m talking nuts, dried fruit, sprinkles – whatever you want!

For a Valentine-themed bark, I highly recommend pink, heart-shaped sprinkles and romantic conversation hearts. It’s cheesy and adorable.

Cheesecake Brownies

6. Cheesecake Brownies 

If you like brownies but your partner prefers cheesecake, this recipe is the perfect solution.

With cheesecake brownies, you’ll get the best of two desserts in one bite. 

This dessert is fudgy and chocolatey at the bottom, and rich, creamy, and cheesy on top.

Together, they create a dessert destined to disappear in a snap.

7. Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites

Here’s another dessert mash-up for your confused hearts: red velvet cheesecake bites.

With this decadent confection, you won’t just get amazing flavors, but festive colors as well.

So what exactly is a red velvet cheesecake bite? Well, it’s no big deal – just a rich ball of cheesecake rolled in luxurious red velvet cake crumbs.

Besides its obvious deliciousness, the contrast of red and white adds to its charm. 

8. Chocolate Fondue 

If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with the kids, fondue is the thing to do. It sounds so fancy, and it is, but it’s the easiest thing ever.

You’ll literally just melt chocolate, and voila! You’ll have a dessert that’s a hit with the kids and the kids-at-heart.

This fondue has the perfect balance of sweetness, as it combines milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate.

As for the toppings, well, that’s up to you.

Just serve whatever you have in the pantry – fresh fruits, cookies, marshmallows – and you’re all set.

9. White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

These cheesecake bars are rich, creamy, and oh-so-pretty! Those red swirls against the cream-colored filling are simply stunning.

And the flavor? My goodness, it’s cheesecake goodness multiplied by 10.

Aside from the rich cheesecake filling and the fruity raspberry sauce, there’s also a layer of sweet Oreo crust at the bottom. I died and went to cheesecake heaven!

Millionaire's Shortbread

10. Millionaire’s Shortbread Recipe 

Don’t let the name scare you: you don’t need to be filthy rich to make a millionaire’s shortbread. Its name is a mere description of how insanely rich it is.

It’s made of three layers – a shortbread crust, golden caramel in the middle, and a luscious chocolate ganache on top. It’s the ultimate definition of decadence!

11. Strawberry Cake 

This cake is ridiculously moist and tender, and it’s loaded with fresh strawberries, too! If you’re a strawberry lover, this dessert is a must-try.

The ingredients are basic, yet its flavor will take you to eternal bliss.

Plus, if you’ve never experienced the sweet aroma of fresh strawberries baking in the oven, you are in for a treat!

White Chocolate Oreo Cookie Balls

12. Oreo Cookie Balls 

Oreos are already addictive as it is, so expect any dessert made from it to be even more drool-worthy. These Oreo cookie balls are the perfect example.

With three ingredients and zero baking required, this is one of the easiest Valentine treats on this list.

But don’t underestimate these just yet, for they also happen to be one of my top choices.

Crushed Oreo cookies (cream filling included) are mixed with cream cheese, rolled into balls, and dipped in white chocolate. It’s mouth-watering, jaw-dropping goodness!

13. Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Chocolate-covered strawberries are great, but if you’re looking for a different twist to the classic dessert, look no further than this recipe.

We’re used to topping cheesecake with fresh strawberries, but what if I told you that you can do it the other way around? It’s a genius idea that’s easy to pull off as well.

Simply cut off the top of the strawberry, scoop out the centers, and stuff it with a sweet and tangy cream cheese filling.

Chocolate Trifle with Whipped Cream

14. Death By Chocolate 

Is your significant other a serious chocoholic? Death by chocolate is the only dessert you need to make.

This insanely decadent dessert is a trifle with layers of brownies, pudding, whipped topping, and crushed toffee bars on top.

It’s pure chocolate obsession, and I think it’s beautiful.

15. Strawberry Love Notes 

If you’re looking for something creative, this dessert is the clear winner.

This strawberry love note is the most delicious and romantic kind of love letter you’ll ever write your partner.

Don’t worry, there’s no need to be a skilled artist to whip this up. In fact, all you’ll need is store-bought pie crust, strawberry jam, and an oven. 

16. Valentine’s Day Hot Chocolate 

What’s so romantic about a cup of hot chocolate? Well, besides its sheer chocolatey goodness, this one also happens to be pink.

There’s no pink ingredient involved here, other than food coloring. That means you get to enjoy a classic hot chocolate, but with a Valentine twist.

Peanut Butter Pie Pin

17. Peanut Butter Pie 

Cream cheese and peanut butter didn’t seem like a good idea, but when I tried it, it blew my mind.

The combination makes the creamiest, most delicious pie filling!

Together with a buttery graham cracker crust, it makes such a delectable dessert that it’s impossible to stop at one.

It can be eaten as is or dressed with Oreo pieces, chocolate chips, or caramel sauce.

18. Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas 

Chimichangas for dessert? I’m listening.

Chimichangas, or deep-fried burritos, are typically filled with savory things, such as meats,  beans, and cheese.

This dish gives the Tex-Mex classic a sweet twist by using a strawberry cheesecake filling instead.

It doesn’t end there! Once deep-fried, the chimichangas are sprinkled with cinnamon sugar for added flavor. It’s a unique dessert that guarantees 100% satisfaction.

19. Sparkle Sweetheart Cookies 

First of all, how stunning are these cookies? It’s the kind of dessert you’ll want to take at least a dozen photos of before digging in.

Once you’ve taken your first bite, oh boy – you’re hooked forever. The cookies are super soft and tender, with a lovely cream cheese flavor.

With a coating of colorful sanding sugar and a piece of chocolate heart on top, they’re both adorable and irresistible.

Stacks of Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

20. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups 

Love the good old chocolate and peanut butter combination? Then this recipe for homemade peanut butter cups is a must-try.

With a creamy, nutty, and sweet-n-salty filling and a decadent chocolate coating, this confection is every dessert lover’s dream. 

Best of all, it’s a lot cheaper than buying a bag of branded peanut butter cups. It’s so tasty and affordable, Reese’s is shaking.

21. White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles 

Chocolate truffles are yet another confection that’s ideal for Valentine’s Day. These decadent treats are fancy and fantastic!

These white chocolate raspberry truffles, in particular, are an excellent way to end an intimate dinner. 

White chocolate and cranberries make such a lovely pair.

Aside from the flavor, its color combination – red and white – makes it extra romantic. How fitting for Valentine’s Day!

22. Thumbprint Cookies

These rich and buttery shortbread cookies with strawberry and apricot jam at the center are sensational! They’re perfect for Valentine’s, but also great for any occasion.

It’s a classic shortbread cookie recipe that couldn’t be easier to make. It calls for only 6 ingredients, and the dough requires no chilling.

That means you’ll get to serve and enjoy it in no time.

Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

23. Peanut Butter Blossoms with Chocolate Kisses 

These peanut butter cookies are super soft and chewy with a chocolate kiss in the middle.

Are you team chocolate or peanut butter? It doesn’t matter, because with this chocolate and peanut butter combo, you get the best of both worlds.

Some people call them cookies, others prefer to use blossoms. They’ll blow your taste buds away, regardless.

24. Red Velvet Ice Cream with Cream Cheese Icing 

You know what’s better than a slice of red velvet cake? A scoop (or two) of red velvet ice cream!

Not only does it give you all the flavors of the classic dessert, but it’s a lot more refreshing and delightful.

The ice cream is a blend of cocoa powder and cream cheese – a true match made in heaven.

With a bit of red food coloring, the ice cream gets a lovely romantic hue.

25. Valentine’s Day Heart Cupcakes 

These soft and fluffy cupcakes are frosted with white, pink, and red, and dressed with colorful sprinkles on top.

Oh, and best of all, these cupcakes are shaped like a heart!

Don’t worry, you won’t need special equipment to pull this one-off.

With regular muffin liners, a muffin tin, and some marbles, you’ll be able to create these lovely heart-shaped cupcakes.

Slice of Heaven on Earth Cake

26. Heaven on Earth Cake 

Want to make sure your partner feels extra loved on Valentine’s Day? Why not give them the heaven on earth experience? All you’ll need is this cake.

Heaven on earth cake is a trifle made of angel food cake, cherry pie filling, custard, and whipped cream. So many layers, so many colors, so many flavors – yum!

27. Chocolate Caramel Pie 

Can’t decide between chocolate and caramel? Make them both. This pie is filled with salted caramel and chocolate pudding. Get ready for a drool-worthy experience. 

Homemade White Chocolate Mousse With Chocolate Sprinkles Pin

28. White Chocolate Mousse 

White chocolate mousse: it’s simple, yet it sure hits the spot. This mousse is ridiculously light, silky, and purely phenomenal.

It looks so basic – just some white filling in a glass – but my God; the flavor is bold and beautiful.

You really can’t go wrong with the combination of white chocolate and whipping cream.

29. Salted Dark Chocolate Tarts 

A huge fan of chocolate? These chocolate tarts will be your new favorite.

With a rich chocolate ganache filling and a crunchy tart crust, this dessert is a chocolate lover’s dream.

What makes dark chocolate taste even better? Easy: a sprinkling of salt.

The salt enhances the flavor of chocolate, giving you deeper, bolder, chocolate goodness.

Oreo Cheesecake

30. Oreo Cheesecake

Last on the list is this simple no-bake Oreo cheesecake that anyone can make. 

The crust is made of crushed Oreos, which already tells you how good this dessert is. The filling is a smooth blend of cream cheese, sugar, and whipped topping.

It’s a decadent dessert that’s perfect for rounding out your romantic dinner.
