Valentine’s day is one of those days that calls for a bit of romance, and food can be a critical part in setting the stage for romance. In our house, having a romantic meal has always been important part of our relationship as great food inspires passion in us! Chocolate and romance go hand in hand, and this recipe is a beautifully simple and romantic dessert that could be perfect for a date night.
Made in a blender or food processor and refrigerated, this recipe is easy to make and the result can be a beautiful and elegant dessert that will put the perfect cap on a romantic evening! Rich and creamy, the semi sweet chocolate gives just the right amount of bitterness so it doesn’t become overly sweet, keeping that deep dark chocolate flavor that makes this feel very decadent. The touch of rum or bourbon adds a depth of flavor that makes the chocolate really pop. If you choose not add in the alcohol, feel free to use vanilla, orange or almond extracts to add in another layer of flavor. Pair it with a glass of red wine, and you just might sweep your date off their feet!
- 2/3 cup whole milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- Pinch salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp. dark rum or bourbon
- In a small pan, heat milk over medium heat until it just starts to boil. While the milk is heating, place egg, sugar, salt, chocolate chips and alcohol in the blender or food processor, pulse it a few times until the chocolate chips are broken up just a bit. When the milk boils, remove from heat, turn the blender or food processor on low and slowly pour the hot milk through the lid opening. Blend about 1 minute or until smooth. Pour into four serving cups. Refrigerate several hours. Recipe makes 4 servings.
- Can be topped with whipped cream, raspberries, or shaved chocolate or a combination of all of them! Serve it chilled in a small bowl.
