4 Top Tips On The Best Valentine’s Day Desserts

Tips On The Best Valentine’s Day Desserts:

Bohemia Restaurant’s Head Pastry Chef Ellen de Jager has given her top tips on creating an indulgent and luxurious dessert to help you impress your loved one.

1. Chocolate Is The Way To A Woman’s Heart:

Sweep your sweetheart off their feet, with some traditionally romantic chocolate covered strawberries. Everyone knows that chocolate is the way to a woman’s heart and it is scientifically proven to release happy hormones!

Chocolate dipped strawberries are a simple and easy, but delicious delight. Add a sprinkle of edible glitter, chocolate chips or salted caramel bites.

2. Nothing Says ‘I Love You’ More Than Red Velvet:

Chocolate tends to steal the limelight in the Valentine’s Day dessert recipes, but red velvet is a scrumptious alternative with a hint of cocoa.

The ruby red colouring is perfect for Valentine’s Day and red velvet gives you the scope to bake cookies, cakes, brownies and more! Be creative and surprise your other half with a batch of velvety heart-shaped goodies.

3. A Splash Of Alcohol In Your Valentine’s Day Sweets:

Add a sophisticated grown up twist to your recipe with a dash of spirit, bubbly or wine. It is the perfect excuse to add your favourite tipple to a delicious dessert.

So an easy way to celebrate the holiday of love is with a sweet and boozy dessert.

4. ‘If You Like It, Then You Should Put A Meringue On It!’:

A meringue dessert looks and tastes amazing but doesn’t require chef-like skills.

Pop to the supermarket and purchase individual meringue cases and simply crumble the meringue and mix with whipped cream and fresh strawberries to make a traditional English favourite Eton mess.

If you are feeling fancier, fill the meringue case with fluffy pink raspberry mousse and top it off with bright red strawberries. With these crunchy and sweet treats, love will certainly be in the air!
