As a wife and mother, one way I like showing my family how much I love them is by preparing delicious dishes for them to enjoy every day. Valentine's Day is no exception and because breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I like starting this special occasion with a delicious dessert that includes an ingredient that is synonymous with love… chocolate! This breakfast sounds really elegant, but it's really just French bread stuffed with cream cheese and chocolate cream and made with croissants instead of regular bread. Prepare this sweet treat for your family as their Valentine's Day breakfast or for any other occasion, your family is sure to love it! MORE + LESS -
