As if we need another reason to eat chocolate, thank the heavens that Valentine's Day is on the horizon. Heck, even those who aren't fans of all of the mushy gushy heart-shaped things that go along with the Hallmark holiday will at least blend in while gobbling down the baked goods that come out of the oven especially for the 14th. Sure, flowers smell good and candlelit dinners are nice, but let's be real, the real stars of Valentine's Day are the sweet treats.

Double chocolate cupcakes, chocolate-covered pretzels, heart-shaped cakes, and ice cream sandwiches: the amount of chocolaty treats we can overindulge in this Valentine's Day is endless. Oh, and let's not forget about the classic chocolate-covered strawberry! The tartness of the berry mixed with the decadent chocolate ... now that's what gets us all hot and bothered. 

But in all seriousness, no one can go wrong with whipping up a sweet treat on Valentine's Day. What better way to drown some sorrows over a recent breakup than with some homemade truffles? On the other hand, homemade desserts are a thoughtful and (literally) sweet gift for a loved one -- and that person doesn't just have to be a significant other! 

Need some chocolaty inspiration for what to come up with this Valentine's Day? Look no further than this roundup of 20 irresistibly chocolaty desserts.
