Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes for Two
Your dessert options should be just as tempting and delicious as dinner, but most recipes serve eight or more. While that's great for Thanksgiving or Christmas, it's not ideal for Valentine's Day or a dinner date. You need a dessert that's made for two and we have the perfect selection for you.
Cupcakes are some of the sweetest treats you can enjoy on a special, romantic evening. Too bad most recipes make 12 or more! Don’t waste batter or cupcakes, and whip up these cupcakes for two instead. Not a fan of cherry extract? Feel free to leave it out. The cupcakes will be delicious sans the flavoring!
For two people, this recipe is a bit high on saturated fat (almost all of it coming from the dark chocolate) for our everyday nutritional guidelines. But it’s Valentine’s Day, so splurge a little if you feel like it. If this is for an everyday treat, cut it to 4 servings, and you get the nutritional thumbs up.
Enjoy this banana split for two together! Get super romantic and craft this dessert with your significant other. Then dive in while watching a movie, chatting in front of a fireplace, or swinging on your front porch. Mix things up with your favorite flavor of frozen yogurt if you and your sweetie prefer chocolate over vanilla.
You can double the recipe for the meringues and save some for a later date; they freeze beautifully for up to 2 months. Just remove them from the freezer and top them with the strawberry mixture--no thawing required. You can also substitute raspberries for the strawberries, if you prefer.
Try not to chop the chocolate too finely for this bread pudding recipe so you'll have good-sized chunks to bite into. Hawaiian sweet bread is a soft, sweet bread found in the bakery section of most grocery stores. Leftovers are good for ham and Swiss sandwiches.
This version of a classic English fool is made lighter and brighter thanks to Greek yogurt and fresh raspberries. Instead of stewing fruit, just let raspberries, sugar, and gin macerate. In place of a calorie-dense custard, opt for a whipped cream-Greek yogurt delight (which also sneaks in a bit of filling protein, too). The cookie crumble is a fun way to top this off–and we’re confident you’ll bring this dessert out for more occasions than just Valentine’s Day once you see how fast and easy it is.
Impress your sweetheart with a restaurant-quality dessert in the comfort of your home. You'll never believe how easy it is to whip up a batch of our sexy, foolproof chocolate soufflés. Prepare for a taste of heaven.
