It is not late to celebrate
The love with chocolate!
The recipe for luscious sweets
Will help to cook the truffles
With heavy cream and cocoa powder.
Freshly made chocolate power
Will boil two hearts over the high heat
For the lovers to meet.
The temperature rises, -
"I love you to pieces!"
Go, bring the Grand Marnier
Or any other liqueur
To celebrate sweet hearts!
The chocolate always works:
You whisper loving words...
A kiss, a bite, a zip.
Everybody has an excellent time
With the chocolate of mine.
"Did you try this line?"
