I wanted to make something sweet for my wife this Valentine's Day that was just a bit different. This is what I came up with.

Step 1: Get everything ready

You'll need some heart shaped cookie cutters or molds, a small saucepan, a bowl large enough to cover he pot completely (a.k.a a double-boiler), a spatula or wooden spoon, a cookie sheet lined with buttered parchment paper or a silpat (silicone baking mat.), some Cajun seasoning and some spicy peanuts. (I have the perfect recipe for Spicy Salt-Roasted Peanuts on my cooking blog. (left out here for lack of photos, but the nuts are wonderful!)

Add about 1" of water to the bottom of the pot. Get the pot on the heat an' get the water simmering. once that's going, pour one bag of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips into the bowl and place it over the top of the pot. Don't go far, it will need your attention very soon.

In the meantime, arrange your cookie cutters or molds on the lined baking sheet. Add a single layer of nuts to the bottom of each mold.

Better check on that chocolate now...
