In Japan and South Korea, for Valentine's Day, girls prepare chocolates with their hands to give to their loved one, to declare themselves. They are therefore the ones who offer a gift. The boys will have to wait an exact month (March 14) before giving an answer, during White Day.


For this recipe you can use chocolate both in bars and in nuggets (you can find them at supermarket).

If during the preparation the chocolate solidifies too much, you can stretch it with a little water, to make it more liquid.
