Last Minute Valentines Day Desserts

Valentines Day Desserts
The time between New Year’s Day and February always seems to fly by in our house so Valentine’s Day often catches me by surprise. Luckily I’ve got a few ideas of my sleeve for last minute Valentine’s Day recipes and menus as well as some delicious, quick and pretty easy Valentines Day desserts.

Easy Fruit Brûlée Dessert
My Easy Fruit Brûlée is a delicious, healthier twist on Crème Brûlée. Crème fraîche or light sour cream is gently spooned over fruit and brandy soaked Amaretti biscuits, sprinkled with Demerara sugar and broiled. You can even make these desserts ahead of time, stash them in the fridge and brûlée them at the last minute.

St Clement's Custards

There’s a story behind the name of these light and delicious St Clement’s Custards. Gently spiked with citrus, they are the perfect end to a romantic meal.

Chocolate Orange Brownies

For some, Valentines Day desserts have to involve chocolate and that is no bad thing. One of my Chocolate Orange Brownies, topped with good vanilla ice cream and drizzled with a bit of chocolate sauce is a great way to anyone’s heart.

Molten Chocolate Babycakes
Or try these classic Molton Chocolate Babycakes. Tender cake gives way to a smooth, chocolatey middle  – making for a very sensual dessert.

Chocolate Orange Marble Cake
And finally, if you have a bit more time, my Chocolate Orange Marble Loaf Cake is much easier to put together than it looks. My step by step directions make marbling easy and the blood orange and chocolate glaze is sure to impress.

Whatever Valentines Day dessert you decide to serve, I hope that you and your loved ones have a wonderful time. And no, that’s not a typo – for me it will always be about loved ones (plural) on Valentines Day. Because while I’m blessed with a wonderfully romantic husband, we love to share the celebrations – and the love – with our family and friends. Valentines Day doesn’t have to just be about romance after all – although I do hope you get to enjoy a bit of that too!
