Sweets for the Sweet

Matt and I don't usually go out for Valentine's Day. (Though this year we are going to Blackbird's Black Hearted Beer Dinner the weekend before.) When we have we find that you often get stuck with a set prix-fixed menu and rushed servers trying to get the crowds through. Instead we prefer to go out another night and make a special dinner at home. To me, sharing dessert can be one of the most romantic parts of the meal. Here's a few favorites from us, most of which have recipes sized just for two!

Red Velvet Creme Brulee Red Velvet Creme Brulee for Two

Chocolate Valentino Chocolate Valentino with Raspberry Ice Cream

Chocolate Mousse Chocolate Mousse for Two

#165 - almond brown butter cake with apricot ginger filling Almond Brown Butter Cake with Apricot Ginger Filling

Hazelnut Brown Butter Cake Hazelnut Brown Butter Cake with Chocolate Sauce

Of course, there are lots of small batch cupcake recipes throughout the site too that would work perfectly!

Love these recipes for Valentine's day! We don't go out either. Had too many bad experiences.

eyeing that torte.
we don't go out either--no place to go on cape cod this time of year.

Looks good! We too don't typically go out. By the time we get home from work and walk the dog, its usually pretty late and we don't get involved with the hype of the holiday. I'm happy to whip up something special though!

Love the idea...but I think I would want a 2 minute head start, if sharing.
