Sweets For the Sweet: Valentines Day Desserts

Sweets For the Sweet: Valentines Day Desserts
31/03/2017

Promotions have been popping all over the internet & the themed cards are at every supermarket you go. The run-up towards Valentines Day is a reminder that the day of love, February 14th is edging closer, adding on the pressure to make preparations that will wow your significant other. Flowers, chocolates, a bit of jewellery & a trip to the local Italian restaurant down the road is great and all but what about something more personal? Whilst choosing the perfect napkins; glasses, candles & crockery to decorate your table with, it can be said that a true labour of love is the art of cooking! Whether you’d go out, buy or prepare the savoury meal is up to you but you know what they say: there’s always room for dessert! If you feel like sweetening up your man/woman this Valentines (& probably your Instagram pages), have a gander at some of these delectable dessert ideas you can whip up yourself. Your palate won’t regret it, nor will theirs!

1.Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownies

Double the layers for double the fun. Gorgeously soft red velvet, added oreo truffle filling gushed over with chocolate ganache before being sprinkled with mini chocolate chips. It’s the definition of devilish food & we love it! Mixing & pressing the red velvet cake mix into a deep baking tray is almost soothing alone with it’s Valentine-themed red batter. The truffle filling is decadently made with literally a whole pack of crushed Oreos mixed with butter! The crushing can be done with a food processor or taking a rolling pin to the oreos in a plastic snack bag. Layering it on top of the red velvet is like applying, delicious, chocolate-like cement of happiness. Finalise this creation with the rich chocolate sauced poured over, sprinkled with mini chocolate chips & your beloved will be wanting a whole plate of these for dinner instead.

  1. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

The fruity alternative you can promote as both tantalisingly delicious whilst being one of your five-a-day. Being refreshingly juicy whilst entangled in a creamy; bold & sweet embrace, these chocolate-dipped wonders are like an unexpected match to last for the ages, much like your match with the lovely person you’ll be sharing them with! Try serving them in some Melamine bowls to add that extra flair of creativity to your presentation. Ease of preparation would be the best thing about this dessert, the hardest part only being melting the chocolate correctly to ensure a smoother melt & making sure your strawberries are nice & fresh. Need a bit more? Add nuts, sugar or however you wish to mix it up a bit!

  1. Twinkie Love Hearts

A loving treat for a loving feast. Woman’s Day Kitchen has utilised the much-fancied yellow American snack cake by giving it a form that is both loving & heartfelt. Only taking two minutes to prepare, the diagonally cut & arranged Twinkies garnished with red jam & raspberries will have your dining guests marvel at your skills in scrumptious innovation. The firm, sponge texture with cream & the sweet, fruity juices will have you relish in every bite, almost making you forget you pulled it’s main ingredient out of a foiled wrap ten minutes go. Perhaps use a charming piece of white crockery as the canvas for this sweet piece of culinary art.

  1. Valentine’s Sundae

One of the coolest desserts of them all. The ice cream sundae is both a classic & an experimental playground of sorts to create the perfect concoction for you.

If wanting to fulfill the Valentine’s Day theme, using strawberry or other pink/red coloured ice cream would be recommended but that’s the fun part of making the ideal ice cream sundae for your loved one: it’s all up to yours & their preferences. This is even in regard to which type of splendidly glistening dessert dish or glass to use for your ice cream splendour. According to this particular recipe however, you can’t go wrong with some strawberries & raspberries to go with those delicious bananas.

Mulberries, pomegranates & shredded coconut are a few examples of extra toppings to give your loving sundae an extra abundance of natural flavours. Having such an explosion of chilled yet fruity tastes, you may end up having this every week as your healthy treat!
