Valentine’s day 2011 is fast approaching, and love is in the air. Running late in you plans for Saint Valentine’s Day? There are many ways to celebrate the holiday, from crafts to cards. Of course, my favorite way to celebrate is with food. Here on the Family Kitchen, we’ve been cooking up sweet Valentine’s treats for weeks now. Sweet treats don’t have to be hard to make, so we’re offering a round-up of recipes, some easy, some more difficult. From chocolate to caramel to citrus, we’ve got delicious dessert recipes that will impress even your littlest Valentines.
Caramel Covered Chocolate Cake
An easy recipe that yields a moist chocolaty cake, smothered in creamy caramel with a big dollop of whipped cream. Does it get better? Probably not.
Salted Chocolate and Caramel Tart
My personal favorite–lightly salted chocolate ganache, creamy caramel, all in a flaky chilled tart.
Heart Shaped Chocolate Cake Pops
These sweet little cakes will quickly spread the Valentine’s cheer. Tiny heart-shaped chocolate cakes covered with rich ganache and Valentine’s-themed sprinkles.
Ruby Red Grapefruit Bars
For the citrus lovers out there, this is a sophisticated take on the classic lemon bar. A perfect treat for Valentine’s parties!
Tiny Heart-Shaped Chocolate Cakes
These little cakes are a cinch to make, and are delicious with a dusting of confectioners sugar.
