Share a little love on St. Valentine’s Day with a homemade treat or a special alcoholic drink.
If the budget doesn’t allow for expensive Valentine’s Day gifts for your significant other, treat your sweetie to a sweet from the heart.
The chocoholic in your life will love Chocolate Valentine Brownies topped with chocolate ganache and cut into a heart shape.
Even a novice cook can whip up a delectable treat, such as Fudgy Raspberry Mug Brownie for two. The sweet is made in the microwave in less than 10 minutes and topped with whipped cream and raspberries.
Cuddle up with a cocktail, such as the appropriately named Romance-Rita.
If you’re pairing chocolate and wine, the editors at Wine Spectator have offered some match-making guidelines. Among them, your wine should be sweeter than the chocolate; match the wine to the chocolate — for example, if there is fruit in the chocolate, make sure the wine has a floral note; and taste sweeter chocolates and wines last.
