Healthy Valentine’s Day Dessert: Sweet Potato Chocolate Mousse

Valentines Day Sweet Potato Chocolate Mousse

We don’t really have Valentine’s Day plans this year, so I think we’re just looking forward to a nice relaxing long weekend at home. We’ve been so busy with work and life and wedding planning that it will be great to just have a few days of absolutely nothing except for quality time with my love and my Netflix.

For Valentine’s Day I do like to pull out all my heart-shaped cookie cutters, molds and dishes for romantic brunch for two: heart-shaped fried eggs, heart-shaped pancakes and heart-shaped toast. Nothing says romance like heart-shaped bacon.

For the occasion I’m sharing this dorky but sweet picture that we took when we stumbled upon some wedding decor while out on a stroll last fall. Might have to save this one for our wedding slideshow!

Wishing you all a weekend full of love and chocolate! <3
