Here is what me and Alissa made for our boys this Valentine’s Day  – chocolate Valentine’s


We baked a basic chocolate sponge – the one from the package, where you add 3 eggs, cup of water and 1/3 cup of oil
Then, we cut out hearts of various colour using cookie cuttersFor filling and decoration – basic chocolate ganache + whipped cream + sweet cherriesChocolate Ganache
250 grams semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of whipping cream
1/3 cup of butterPut all the ingredients in a glass bowl, microwave for 2 minutes, mix well until even, let cool, whip with a mixer for 3-4 minutes

Whipped Cream
2 cups whipping cream + 1/2 cup icing sugar – beat till steady peaks

Fill the pastries and decorate up to your liking

I was not allowed to decorate – Alissa did it all!
