Valentine’s day is all about spoiling someone and being spoiled. In my book it’s about the food being served and shared and of course it’s all about the dessert!
You can never go wrong with preparing anything that contains chocolate – it can be ice cream, truffles, souffle or mousse. Chocolate cake with rich chocolate ganache, self saucing chocolate pudding or chocolate brownies. Even just a bar of decent quality chocolate. Valentine’s day is about smooching and CHOCOLATE!
If you’re out to impress someone, I suggest you try my chocolate mousse recipe – I added cinnamon and a hint of chilli. The combination of dark chocolate with chilli and cinnamon will entice all the senses and satisfy any palate. Incidentally, all these ingredients are known to be aphrodisiacs… I’m just saying.
Chocolate mousse is very easy to prepare, the only tricky part is to melt the chocolate correctly. The rest is just whisking and folding! Have a happy Valentine’s day and enjoy the spoils.
