This dessert combines all of those things into something beautiful! Also this would pair beautifully with a glass of red wine. Fancy but a little gooey too, this is such a fun treat for your Valentine’s Day!

Remember if you put something together yourself your date is sure to be impressed with your thoughtfulness and cooking skills! And both are qualities most people would be very pleased to have in their significant other. So have a happy Valentine’s Day, and Bon Appetit!
