Chocolate and romance are often considered to go hand in hand in the love department. In fact, offering a box of delectable fine chocolates on Valentine’s Day to your lover is a common standard, historically considered to be an aphrodisiac, inciting passion and attraction. Chocolate can be used several ways to add spice and excitement to your relationship. You don’t have to be a chocolate expert, you just have to know what turns the other person on and how to find the right time to bring out the dark, sweet confection.
1Conduct a sexy chocolate treasure hunt. Choose a time when the kids are with friends and create a steamy game of chocolate hide and go seek. Don’t tell your significant other, just allude to an evening of intimacy and to “be ready.”
- Purchase a large box of pre-wrapped chocolates––preferably your partners’ favorites.
- Create either a trail of chocolate pieces (and rose petals) leading to the boudoir or devise an interactive treasure hunt.
- For treasure hunt clues, weave both humor and romance into the text such as, “Find your next treat in the place where I take my evening seat (a favorite sofa).”
- Leave a small clue with each piece of chocolate until the hunt culminates either in the bedroom or in a cozy area of your home where you have arranged for a romantic dinner for two.
- The end of the chocolate treasure hunt could involve you smothered in chocolate or at least with chocolates artistically laid out across your body.
2Make a playlist of music featuring chocolate. A simple search using the term "chocolate" on a music program such as iTunes will reward you with numerous tracks based on chocolate or chocolate themes. Choose ones that you like and put together a chocolate infused music compilation to play in the background during your chocolate romancing.
3Take a bath in chocolate. Skip squeezing the Hershey’s syrup into the tub and do a chocolate bath the right way. While the Internet is loaded with plenty of chocolate bath recipes, you may like to try wikiHow's own chocolate bath recipe or a chocolate bubble bath. Although you may be tempted to sample the chocolate while you bathe, resist the urge to imbibe. Think about where your feet have been over the past few hours and your temptation to drink the chocolate will fade away! And as well as soaking in sensual chocolate, you can stimulate the senses with a few added touches:
- Champagne for two––skip plastic cups or ordinary glasses and go for the real crystal flutes.
- Scented chocolate candles––fill the room with the aroma of chocolate by lighting several chocolate-scented candles around the bathroom.
- A plate of chilled, fresh fruit. While strawberries are usually preferable, explore adding mango, berries and cherries.
4Have chocolate on the menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Surprise your honey by having a full chocolate feast instead of the usual fare. For example, dine on chocolate croissants for breakfast or serve nothing but chocolate dessert for lunch. For dinner, it’s possible to infuse main course, appetizers, drinks and dessert with chocolate and finding the right recipe need not pose a huge challenge. Look at Mexican cuisine chocolate main course recipes such as chicken mole (or vegan mole). And beyond that, here’s an example of what you could make:
- Beef stew with chocolate: combine two pounds of chopped beef stew meat with traditional spices such as salt and pepper. Sear meat in a large saucepan over high heat until all sides are brown and caramelized. Set aside. Combine one cup of sliced carrots, 8 ounces of mushrooms, three cups of diced potatoes, one 14.5 ounce can of tomatoes and the beef in a slow cooker. In a separate bowl, mix two tablespoons of finely grated dark chocolate, one teaspoon grated garlic, one meatloaf packet, one 14 ounce can of beef broth, and one cup of red wine. Pour over the beef mixture in the slow cooker and cook for four to six hours.
- White knight-tini: Mix two shots of vanilla vodka combined with two shots of white chocolate liqueur and half shot of chocolate liqueur. Stir, strain and serve over ice. For an added touch, dip the glass rims in warmed white chocolate.

5Try body painting with chocolate. Although it may be tempting to try painting with regular brand chocolate, consider going for chocolate that is made especially for body painting. One distinct advantage is that body painting chocolate is ready for fun––no mixing or re-configuring the make-up to find the right consistency. However, if you insist on DIY’ing your chocolate body painting experience, try this recipe:
- 17.5 ounces of dark chocolate (sweet and/or semi-sweet) chopped, 13.5 ounces of cream, a handful of chopped mint leaves, one finely chopped chili pepper and a double shot of espresso. Divide cream into three different pans, add mint and chili to one pan and the espresso to the third pan. Slowly warm each pan to almost a simmer (for approximately 15 minutes). Melt chocolate in a separate pan either in the microwave or by using the double boiler method. Remove from heat and divide chocolate into the three pans. Return pans to low heat and simmer until fully combined.
6Give a gift of exclusive chocolates. At the end of a day or evening of chocolate romance, provide your beloved with a memento that can last a few more days. Buy the most delectable box of chocolates possible (or naughty anatomy chocolates) and present your beloved with it to help him or her recapture the evening of chocolate indulgence for a little longer yet. Seal the giving with a French kiss involving passing an exquisite chocolate between the two of you.
7Visit a chocolate spa. For the ultimate in chocolate romance, book a trip to a spa that specializes in chocolate treatments. Numerous local spas offer chocolate massages and facials to tantalize the spirit and the senses. While this one takes a little more planning, it can be a truly enjoyable experience for your chocoholic beloved and gives you both the excuse to get away and totally indulge for a short time.
- For the all-encompassing supreme experience, consider a visit to The Spa at the Hershey Hotel. Parked in Hershey, Pennsylvania, couples can revel in all things chocolate. Treatments include hydrotherapy, facials, massages and body wraps. If you don't live near here, plan a vacation treat for another time.

- Choose a day or evening when the kids are either out of the house or are tucked safely in bed. You don’t want to have to rush or stop what you are doing to attend to their needs or worse––have to share with them.
- If you are serving chocolate for dinner or dessert, consider going for the really good chocolate like Godiva or spend a little extra on chocolate made by a local confectionery boutique that has Belgian, Swiss, African or South American chocolate varieties. Going the extra mile will be well worth the investment.
- Never insert chocolate or other sugary substances into the vagina. The sugars can lead to serious yeast infections.
- Chocolate stains when rubbed into bed sheets and fabric. Treat as quickly as possible to remove the stain.
- Never use chocolate immediately after it has been heated in the microwave for body painting; wait until you're confident it has cooled. Ending up with burns and taken to a unit at the hospital is spicing things up too far!
