Trader Joe's always has a great selection of chocolate desserts, but it's never so appreciated as during Valentine's Day. This year, show your significant other (or yourself) some love with one of these chocolatey treats. After all, if whipping up four-ingredient desserts
or even an easy, homemade chocolate ganache
just isn't going to happen, you can always rely on filling your TJ's cart with as much cocoa-based candy as possible.
Salted Caramel Flavored Hot Cocoa ($4):
Next to a roaring fire, nothing is cozier than a big cup of hot chocolate. This mix has an added element of indulgence thanks to salted caramel.
Dark Chocolate Batons ($1):
Nothing says "I love you" like some ethically sourced, organic, fair trade dark chocolate. Choose from 72 percent cacao, raspberry, and espresso batons — or get all three.
The Cow Moos at Midnight ($4):
A drizzle of this organic chocolate syrup makes any meal taste like dessert. Yes, that definitely includes breakfast.
Premium Peanut Butter Roundels ($4):
Smooth chocolate, creamy peanut butter, and that irresistible snap when you take a bite — nothing beats Trader Joe's Roundels.
Mudd Pie ($7):
Present your Valentine with this deeply indulgent ice cream pie. Believe us when we say that even though it weighs more than a pound, it only serves two.
Milk Chocolate Lover's Chocolate Bar ($2):
Dark chocolate is all the rage these days, yet milk chocolate still deserves our respect. Made with 45 percent cocoa, this bar strikes the perfect balance of creamy and bold.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups ($4):
The classic combo of chocolate and peanut butter never gets old — just like true love. Dark chocolate makes these sweets even more crave-worthy.
Chocolate Filled Crêpes ($3):
Breakfast in bed starts off any Valentine's Day right. TJ's chocolate-filled crêpes make it easy to deliver without actually having to get up at the crack of dawn to start cooking.
Chocolate Almond Butter Tarte ($6):
Almond butter adds silky richness to this tart, along with protein and some heart-healthy fat. Keep it in the freezer until the mood for romance (or dessert) strikes.
Birthday Cake Bar ($2):
Celebrate the birth of true love with a white chocolate bar full of cookie crumbles and rainbow sprinkles.
Cocoa Truffles ($3):
When it comes to Valentine's Day candy, it doesn't get more classic than truffles. These are rolled in cocoa powder, so each bite is full of bold chocolate flavor.
Marbled Mint Crunch Chocolate Bar ($2):
Natural mint flavor gives this chocolate bar, riddled with crunchy pieces of chocolate-coated mint candy and cookie crumbs, a cool taste. The marbled swirl of dark, white, and green chocolate gives it an elegant look.
Chocolate Covered Marshmallows ($3):
Light and fluffy inside, these sweet marshmallows are coated in decadent dark chocolate. Drop one into your hot cocoa, or eat them as-is.
