Romance is great and all, but one of my favorite ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day has always been to surprise friends and co-workers with unexpected treats. What better way to spread some love than with rich, gooey breakfast goodies? These Chocolate Raspberry Monkey Bread Hearts are a decadent way to show how much you care.
These gooey cakes make a super rich breakfast or afternoon nibble, so they’re the perfect treat to take into the office or share at a meeting or playdate. Even better, they use store-bought biscuit dough as the base so they’re really easy to make.
Simply coat pieces of biscuit dough with a mixture of cocoa and sugar, then pack them into the cakelet pans with layers of chocolate chips, fresh raspberries and a rich brown sugar cocoa sauce. While the cakes are baking, whisk together a quick chocolate ganache to drizzle over top. To give these treats an extra pop of festive color and raspberry flavor, blend freeze dried raspberries and sprinkle the dust over top.
These sweet little treats are sure to disappear quickly and guaranteed to warm your heart when they do.
