Ginger and Macadamia Shortbreads 2 of 21My favorite dessert? Well, it depends. I think the most romantic desserts are those shared in close proximity — snuggled up on the couch or in bed together, watching a favorite movie or downloads of whatever TV series we're currently addicted to. Some of our favorites, though? A strong affogato (espresso over ice cream), preferably with a shot of frangelico, "Green & Blacks" milk chocolate, Or these ginger and macadamia shortbreads!

Pineapple Kesari Bhath 7 of 21I am not much of a pudding person but my husband compensates my lack of "sugar love" for me! There are very few desserts that we both enjoy, and one of them is this delicious pineapple kesari bhath. It's made with semolina, candied pineapple, sugar, ghee (Indian clarified butter), and spiced with world's most expensive spice, saffron.

Chocolate Sorbet 14 of 21An icy, bittersweet batch of chocolate sorbet. I bought myself an ice cream maker last year and am constantly experimenting with frozen desserts.

Chocolate Fondue 15 of 21I honestly don't think I have ever made a dessert for only two people. I can usually eat two or three servings of something on my own! But a Valentine's tradition in our house is to make a chocolate fondue. Nothing more romantic than dipping ripe fruit into warm chocolate ganache. Mmmmmm.

Chocolate Pots de Crème 16 of 21Because this month is all about making your beloved happy, I go with chocolate, even though I'm not fond of the stuff. My husband loves it, and I love seeing his eyes roll back as he eats something delicious. I like to go with individual servings, which, to me, say "I made this especially for you" — like these pots de crÃ¨me do.
