Valentine’s Day Desserts

Every year, my step-dad treats the family to an insanely decadent Valentine's Day dessert-extravaganza.  It is his pride and joy to make everything from scratch & treat us to all kinds of goodies.  This year was no exception.  On the menu?

Earl Grey Chocolate Crème Brulee.  Raspberry Almond Cake with a rich chocolate drizzle and tons of fresh raspberries.  Chocolate Covered Strawberries covered in dark and milk  Ghiradelli chocolate.  And last, but not least, melt in your mouth truffles and sea salt caramels from Flying Rhino.  If you’re local & you haven’t already, you need to partake in some of the loveliest chocolates in the city.  Trust me, make sure you get the caramels… you can thank me later.

Everything was absolute perfection.  I can’t wait to see what next year’s menu brings and to partake in a champagne cocktail or two since those were sorely missed this year.

So tell me what treats would your ideal Valentine’s Day Dessert Extravaganza include? How do you celebrate?

My Valentine wish for all of you is that today {and everyday} is filled with lots of mushy love junk.

And pssst… Dave… I like you and hope you’ll be my boyfriend forever.

That looks all types of tasty.

I don't give a crap about Valentine's Day. So I just eat what I always eat. Today? It'll be the brownies I made yesterday.

I didn't see this yesterday... but my perfect Valentines day would include a night with just my husband. But for now I'll settle for pizza, no dishes, and a night with my kids while the husband goes bowling with friends. ;o)

What a wonderful tradition! We don't have any for Valentine's Day but obviously we need to start some!

My mouth is watering! Everything looks and sounds delicious, especially the crème brulee. The pink tulips are beautiful :)

I'm wishing I had made cake pops for Valentine's Day. They're such a great sweet treat.
