I would like more information on Valentine's Day recipes.
By WENDY from ARCATA, CA
My Sister in Law used to make my brother a giant heart shaped chocolate chip cookie each year for Valentine's Day. I don't know if she still does or not. If you don't have a good recipe for one, you can usually buy them at the local shopping mall, all decorated, for any occasion.
I would try Allrecipes.com since they have holiday themed recipes including Valentines day. Also kraftfoods.com has several and verybestbaking.com does too.
A great recipe that is so easy.
1# pkg chocolate sandwich cookies
1/2 gallon ice cream (I like pepermint stick for this)
12 oz whipped topping, thawed
Crush the chocolate sandwich cookies, reserve about 1/3 cup of crumbs.
Mix the crumbs with thawed whipped topping.
Spread in bottom of 9 X 13 pan. Cover with the softened ice cream.Sprinkle reserved crumbs over ice cream. Put in freezeer, and use anytime you desire. Will keep long time.
You can use a pink ice cream for Valentines or Christmas day, and a green mint for St Patricks day. Use your imagine and a flavor you like.
Outrageous Chocolate Cookies
Makes 2 dozen; Prep time: 20 minutes; Total time: 45 minutes
Do not bake the cookies to a crisp; they are meant to be soft and chewy. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for two to three days.
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Heat chopped chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl in 20-second increments, stirring in between, until almost melted; do not overheat. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; beat in melted chocolate. Mix in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.
3. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 to 3 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are shiny and crackly yet soft in centers, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on sheets 10 minutes; with a thin metal spatula, transfer to racks to cool completely.
Note: Don¿t worry if the batter seems thin. It should look more like brownie batter than cookie dough.
These cookies are wonderful
I'd probably go with "Angels on Horseback". Basically, it is oysters wrapped with half a slice of bacon and broiled until the bacon is done, but there are a number of seasoning variations. The aforementioned sites should have some interesting recipes, but if you don't find them there just google "Angels on Horseback" and you'll find a mess of them.
