Saying "I Love You" Without Words

There are several ways you can say I love you without uttering a single word. One way is through food, specifically chocolates. Make one or all of the above recipes for your special someone.

There is a famous movie quote, "Love means never having to say you're sorry," but I think that’s a bit unrealistic. I prefer to use Hershey's Kisses and say I Love You with Candy.
