Valentine’s Day Chocolate Hearts


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so today I wanted to try out an idea that I had in mind for my boyfriend. Each year, I like to make a gift from scratch for him. It’s become a tradition of ours and I’m extremely excited to give him these chocolate raspberry hearts made with coconut oil! I thought that this was the perfect gift idea since he absolutely loves any type of chocolate and berry combination. These chocolates are also healthier for you than store bought chocolates. The agave used is a natural sweetener and lower on the glycemic index; which helps prevent a drastic rise or fall in blood sugar.


This recipe was super quick to make and extremely budget friendly. I actually had all the ingredients in my pantry except the agave and I had to find was a heart shaped mold. After purchasing the agave and the mold, I only spent six dollars! You will be able to find a mold at any craft supply store. I bought a larger heart shape, however any size will work. I also, found a raspberry flavored agave that was perfect for this recipe. Feel free to use regular agave or honey if you prefer a plain chocolate. The coconut oil added a melt in your mouth effect, which I loved! These chocolates will also give you the benefits of coconut oil in a delicious way.  Let’s take a look at how to make this Valentine’s Day treat:


¼ Cup Kelapo Coconut Oil

¼ Cup cocoa powder

2 Tablespoons agave (I used a raspberry flavor)

Chocolate Raspberry Hearts


  1. In a small sauce pan, melt the coconut oil over a low heat and add in the agave. Whisk together for about 1 to 2 minutes and slowly add in the cocoa powder.
  2. Whisk all ingredients together until they are fully combined. Pour into a silicone heart mold or any heart shaped candy mold. Make sure to stir the mixture occasionally in between pouring.
  3. Place the chocolates in the fridge or freezer for 15 to 30 minutes. The time to harden may vary depending on how warm the mixture was on the stove top.
  4. Once chilled, pop the chocolates out of the mold. Place them on a plate to serve or package in your own gift box.

I was very happy with the finished product and I’m extremely excited to give these to my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day! If you’re looking to make more than just chocolates, try my chocolate mousse for an added decadent dessert.

What are you making your loved one for Valentine’s Day?
