Homemade Chocolate Cake Mix #TasteCreations

For most people, giving chocolate for Valentine's Day is a holiday tradition. I love giving chocolate goodies for gifts and this homemade chocolate cake mix is perfect. The receiver can choose when they want the treat, as it is ready to make when they are ready to create!

This homemade mix is so simple and of course, using good ingredients for simple mixes is what makes it special. Use good flour and good chocolate and you are good to go!  I made these cake mixes for under $1.00 per mix, which makes it a budget-friendly gift.
