When Valentine’s Day desserts are for two, this is the time to make the final part of the menu the most spectacular. Using a red velvet prepared cake mix and two round cake pans, you can create special Valentine’s Day desserts for two. Mix and bake as directed and allow cake layers to cool. Prepare a filling of whipped cream, Confectioners sugar to sweeten and strawberry preserves to cover both layers. Place the bottom layer on a serving dish. Spread sweetened whipped cream over the first layer and sides. Use a decorator bag or teaspoon to pipe strawberry preserves over the top of this layer. Repeat for the top layer. Garnish the serving dish with chocolate kisses and place an extra large chocolate kiss in the center of the top layer.
25 Desserts to Make Valentine’s Day the Sweetest of the Year
Valentine’s Day Dessert Ideas
Nothing is more fun for families than making Valentine’s Day dessert. Kids love to help create desserts and parents can use Valentine’s Day Dessert ideas that require only a minimal amount of adult supervision. Use pound cake slices to create sliced hearts. Cover the hearts in whipped cream and let the kids decorate with white chocolate curls and sugared raspberries.
Kids can also have fun filling prepared chocolate cups with strawberry preserves and topping each with crushed nuts or shredded coconut.
Special Valentine’s Day Desserts for Two
Nothing says “I love you” like a special Valentine’s Day dessert for two. Valentine’s Day” gift bundles” can be made from phyllo dough sheets. Create a superlative filling from mascarpone cheese sweetened with confectioner’s sugar, a scant dash of cinnamon and finely grated orange rind.
To create gift bundles for two, you’ll need to butter four phyllo sheets cut into four inch by four inch squares for two bundles. Blend well and add filling to unbaked phyllo sheet. Fold over the edges to create a “bundle.”
Brush the tops with egg white and top with pignoli nuts. These bake within fifteen minutes in a moderate oven. Allow them to cool. Lightly drizzle Framboise liqueur over the top of each.
Valentine Cookies that Speak of Love
Valentine’s Day dessert recipes should include cookies. Make plain sugar cookies extra special by spreading marzipan between the layers and topping with pretty pink icing and glace cherries. Use icing gel to write love notes atop the cookies. Marzipan is also great for creating fanciful cupids and hearts. To create these miniature “sculptures,” start with form. Simply press marzipan into the form and shake the form to remove. Dip these in melted chocolate or roll in crushed nuts. Make small chocolate jewel boxes from chocolate bars and fill with white chocolate dipped wild strawberries.
