Chocolate Cake "Black Hearts" (Victorian) ★★★As it's nearing Valentine's Day, I would like to share a festive recipe. This is very simple recipe - really, you could easily use a boxed cake mix for convenience (if you aren't going for historical accuracy!).
Dip small heart-shaped cakes - made by baking any simple chocolate cake recipe in small heart-shaped pans - into melted sweet chocolate. Before the chocolate dries, carefully pipe a small white fondant heart in the center of each cake and fill with raspberry or cranberry jelly.
These little cakes were tasty! But using semi-sweet baking chocolate made them very rich. Next time I would not use so much. I also used whipped cream instead of fondant because it seemed easier and tastier to me. I would eat these again.
