Valentines Day Recipes to Treat Yourself With.
Tasty Decadent Choices for Dessert Recipes for a Romantic Night with your Sweetheart or a Fun Family Night.
Two Favorites would have to be the Angel Food Cake with Strawberry Mousse and the Brownie Recipe with Belgian Chocolate and Whipped Cream!
A Light Luscious Favorite...
ANGEL FOOD CAKE WITH STRAWBERRY MOUSSE
1 package Angel Food Cake Mix
2 packages Strawberry Mousse Mix or Chocolate Mousse
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
Optional - Daisy Confection Candies or candies of your choice
Fresh Strawberries or fruit of your choice for garnish if desired
Prepare and bake Angel Food Cake according to package directions, using a10 inch tube pan.
Remove from oven when baked and invert onto wire rack to cool completely, about 1 hour.
With a serrated knife, about 2 inches down from top, gently cut top with knife and turn cake as you cut through.
Carefully scoop out insides of cake carefully, put scooped out cake insides in medium sized bowl.
Leave about 1/4 inch on bottom and sides to hold the strawberry mousse.
Prepare Strawberry Mousse or Chocolate Mousse according to package directions.
Mix together approx. half of mixture and 1 cup sliced strawberries in bowl, folding gently to mix. If using the Chocolate Mousse, a little cooking tip might be to add some chocolate candies like Smarties or a little boy's favorite the gummy worms!
Pour into hollowed out cake.
Cover with Top of cake that was set aside. With remaining Strawberry Mousse frost your cake using a large spatula.
Place cake in refrigerator until set about 1 - 2 hours.
To garnish - Place Sugar Candy Daisies, Candy Hearts or Chocolate Candies like Smarties or Gummy Worms randomly on cake, covering top and sides.
Optional - Place fresh whole strawberries, raspberries or blueberries randomly on top of cake for a nice added touch.
This is such an easy recipe to make, it's one of My Favorites!
For An Excellent little Secret Cooking Tip ...
With the leftover cake pieces that you scooped out, make a Fabulous Dessert for a Favorite in Jello Recipes.
With a Jello flavor of your choice, make according to package directions and place in refrigerator to partially set. Fold in Whipped Cream that has been whipped up, fold and mix gently until well combined. Fold in Cake pieces until all are covered. Add fresh fruit if desired, strawberries or blueberries are a nice add in. Place back into refrigerator and let chill and set for at least 1 hour. Serve up this delightful light dessert recipe for a midnight snack or add to your table for another choice in sweet dessert delights!
Decadent and Delicious...
12 Brownies warmed in Individual serving dishes
1/2 Quart each of Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Ice Cream, Strawberry Ice Cream
(use your imagination and choose a flavor of your choice, Butter Pecan is another great pick!)
6 Bananas - Quartered or Sliced
2-4 cups Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
1/2 cup of each - Fudge Sauce and Caramel Sauce (heated)
1 pint Whipping Cream (whipped)
4 ounces Belgian Chocolate - shaved
1/2 cup English Toffee Bits or Almond Roca pieces
Sliced Almonds or Nuts of your choice
Pretty much anything goes with the toppings for this Brownie Recipe, with a bit of imagination a creativity you will rock with this one!
I like to use individual serving dishes and this is how I put together this favorite.
In the bottom of each dish, pour a half of the heated fudge sauce and caramel sauce.
Place Brownies in each of the dishes on top of the sauces.
Place Bananas and Strawberries around the Brownies.
With a scoop of each of the Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Ice Cream and Strawberry Ice Cream, put on top and around the Brownies.
Pour the rest of the heated Fudge Sauce and Caramel Sauce over the Ice Cream in each of the dishes.
With your whipped cream, dollop spoonfuls into each of the dishes over the sauces, ice cream and brownies.
Sprinkle with shaved Belgian Chocolate, Toffee Bits or Almond Roca Pieces and sliced Almonds or Nuts of your choice.
Place your English Toffee Bits or Almond Roca into a small plastic re-sealable bag. Squeeze air out and seal. Gently tap the bag a few times with the bottom of a glass jar a few times and you will have yourself some great little pieces to garnish!
Makes 12 servings.
Grab a very large spoon and ENJOY!!!
