I know what you’re thinking.
Beets? For Valentine’s Day?
Groundbreaking. (The Devil Wears Prada, anyone?)
But sometimes things are obvious and cliché because they just work. Who am I to question that? And there are so many gorgeous beetroot recipes out there, just begging to be made, that I couldn’t NOT post this round up. So if you’re looking for a Valentine’s day recipe that’s a little less cliché (and by a little less cliché I mean THE MOST CLICHÉ EVER), then check out this ooey-gooeyist of all chocolate mud cakes.
