If you are a chocolate lover, you may want to try this easy recipe at home. Who doesn’t like chocolate? I think it is every child’s favorite since sweets are usually their thing. Even most of the adults I know love chocolates.

I added strawberry cream cheese icing that blends well with chocolate on this recipe. Bottled strawberry preserves are already sweet that you might not need to add plenty of confectioner’s sugar to your icing mixture.

Try this recipe with your loved ones. Whether you’ll love the process or the finished product, I am sure that you will remember it fondly in the future.
