Happy valentines day to all my loves of my life!
Hope your day is filled with lots and lots of chocolate, flowers + just feeling loved!

It’s not valentines day without some chocolate or something sweet, I know I’m going to be getting lots of chocolate throughout the next few days, so I wanted to do something a little more tart!

How about some “stud muffins” 😉 Creamy, tart & perfect for today.
