Butternut Squash, Nuts & Dark Chocolate Valentines

I love butternut squash and dark chocolate combination.

I think it tastes soo good.
It’s not too sweet and is so light.
And because Valentine’s day is just around the corner, I’m sharing a simple recipe for Valentines Squash and Dark Chocolate hearts.

The recipe is so easy, that even your little ones would be able to make it.

Also, this is a great idea for a light and guilt free dessert for any of you who are trying to shed the pounds.
Who says you can’t have a dessert when you’re on diet?:-)
I used small heart shaped baking tins with loose base but you can use any shaped and size tin basically.
Here’s what you need for these lovely hearts.
