Valentine’s Day is a week from tomorrow, which is as good an excuse as any to focus on chocolate for just a moment. Chocolate and Valentine’s — together they make a February cliché, but this collection of chocolate recipes we have for you today is anything but trite.

Sure, there are chocolate cupcakes, but one is dense and fudgy inside, like a lava cake cooled into fudge, while the other is vegan-friendly and livened up with orange and ginger.

There’s a chocolate bundt cake with the funky sweetness of root beer, and brownies with sea salt and lime. There’s hot chocolate on a stick — a fun and delicious Valentine’s gift — and dark, intense chocolate mousse with a touch of olive oil. We’d like to think of these as our best chocolate recipes and finds — no one-dimensional desserts here, every one with a little something special. Just right for Valentine’s, and any time.
