With the chocolate sauce hardened and the squid nice and firm from the freezer the chocolates were pretty much done. I placed them onto a plate with some valentines day garnishes (many thanks to Canida for creating the blood orange skin heart) and then put the chocolates on the table to let them enjoy the view of the bay area sunset.

These were originally intended to be a Valentines Day super romantic present, but unfortunately my valentine is far away from me these days, and since squid don't travel very well in the mail, I ate them myself.

Happy Valentines Day.

Dude, flipping brilliant. This also works with smoked salmon, and/or candied salmon. Octopus also works good, because the tentacles have a nice, slightly sweet flavour.

I'm gonna have to try this now just to see if squid and chocolate are really two great tastes that taste great together! just like rocktheproject said i love both and never thought too mix 'em but now this is going to haunt me until i do...
