February 14, 2011

This is a very easy dessert recipe that will make any meal a romantic one.Perfect for Valentine’s day or any day. Switch spoons and take turns feeding each other this gooey, liquidy centered dessert. Tantalizing would not give it enough credit.

  • 1/2 pound good dark chocolate (I mixed dark and semi sweet)
  • 1/2 pound butter melted
  • 5 eggs, MUST be room temperature
  • 2/3 C. sugar
  • 3/4 C. flour
  • 1/4 t kosher salt
  • Raspberries and Powdered sugar for garnish

Melt butter.Add chocolate. Beat the eggs well but do not overbeat.Slowly add sugar and salt to eggs and whisk until  disolved. Add flour 1/4 C. at a time.Whisk until combined after each addition.

Stir chocolate until melted.Return to microwave at 15 second intervals until completely melted.Stir well making sure there are no lumps of chocolate. Allow to come to almost room temperature.Don’t cool,just make sure it is not hot.

Slowly add to egg mixture.Whisk until completely incorporated.

Pour into 4 individual lightly buttered ramekins.

Bake in a 400 degree oven directly on rack for 14 minutes.

Dust with powdered sugar.Top with a few raspberries and serve warm,preferably someplace comfortable.


Chocolate topped Strawberry Shots of Love

February 12, 2011

Chocolate,strawberry and whipped cream.Perfect for Valentine’s Day or anytime! I created these for a friend’s birthday which happens to fall near Valentine’s Day. (Happy Birthday again Karen). If you are thinking chocolate covered strawberries – surprise!

  • 1 4oz. box strawberry jell-o
  • 1 C. boiling water
  • 1/2 C. vodka
  • 1/2 C. creme de cacao
  • 1 bottle Hershey’s Shell Topping -chocolate or chocolate fudge

Boil water. Pour in jell-o and stir until completely dissolved. Add vodka and creme de cacao. Pour into mini muffin pans almost to the top. Put in freezer for 30 minutes or in fridge to gel. Before serving pour a teaspoon of shell topping on each “shot” and spread evenly. Pop back in fridge for another ten minutes to harden. Carefully spoon out and place in shot glass. Top with whipped cream. Enjoy all the sensations….and have a Happy Valentine’s Day from me.
