Special Offer

Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with your beau or single with friends, here are two recipes to make the night a little sweeter.

COUPLE TIME: Chocolate Body Paint

Serves 2

Ingredients:
17.5 oz/490 grams high-quality dark chocolate (semi-sweet or bittersweet), chopped
13.5 oz/405 ml cream
1/2 bunch mint, finely chopped
1 chili pepper, finely chopped
Double shot espresso

Method:
1. Divide cream into 3 individual pans

2. Add mint into 1 pan, chili into the second pan, and espresso into the third pan

3. Slowly warm each pan to a near simmer and remove from heat, allowing flavor to infuse for 15 minutes.

4. Place dark chocolate in a small bowl and set over a small saucepan of barely simmering water. Stir constantly until chocolate melts.

5. Remove pan from the heat.

6. Divide chocolate into 3 small pots.

7. Return pans of cream to heat and, once hot, strain each pan of cream into 1 chocolate pot, creating 3 separate flavored-chocolate body paints.

Using 3 small brushes and your imagination, paint away!
