Chocolate, Rose and Lemon Lovers Buckwheat Biscuits/Cookies

Rose are red, violets are blue, I fancy a cookies, how about you? Yes that’s right, now there’s no better way to celebrate valentines day than with biscuits. Chocolates and flowers are normally a common gift to give on Valentine’s day. Now you can go one easy step further and make your loved one or ones these delicious biscuits with chocolate and rose in.

Chocolate has a dark secret too. It contains a couple of chemicals called phenylethylamine and serotonin, which are thought to be mood boosters and mild sexual stimulants. Eating chocolate can make you feel good, maybe even euphoric. The aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate are more about the sensual pleasure of how it melts in your mouth. In a biscuit with rose and lemon it tastes as good as, if not better than just plain chocolate. Go on, you know you what too.

Chocolate, Rose and Lemon Lovers Buckwheat Biscuits/Cookies

Chocolate, Rose and Lemon Lovers Buckwheat Biscuits/Cookies were a huge hit with my little lovers. They loved these biscuits/cookies and I really enjoyed baking this sweet treats. They were easy to prepare and cook. Plus they are packed with goodness. For this recipe I used a heart shaped cookie cutter that I brought from my local supermarket. It made a nice change from my usual round cookie cutter. These cookies can be given as a gift but they are also yummy with a cup of tea just for you. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
