Last-minute gifts are truly the norm for Valentine’s day, especially when it comes to edible offerings. Being something of a cynic, this simple fact just validates my belief that this is one useless holiday, not worth remembering until the date itself even for couples so deeply in love. Of course, it’s also true that all food is best when fresh, so I’ll give you guys the benefit of the doubt and pass along this quick dessert idea, just in case you were holding out for that perfect edible expression.
To be perfectly honest, I’m a bit embarrassed to be posting about this. Unarguably delicious and beautiful, yes, but I barely can even consider this homemade. At its core, it’s nothing but chocolate ice cream smushed into a heart-shaped silicon mold and paired with raspberry sauce. But here’s where the creativity comes in: That ice cream could be any flavor you or your sweetie desires, homemade no less, and the same goes for that sauce. Since I barely had enough time to let these freeze in the first place, and no significant other to speak of, I hope you’ll forgive my lax approach this time. Now, here’s your chance to make this idea shine, so go forth and woo!
