Valentine's Day Recipes

Here's something different for a fun Valentine treat :-)



Place a chocolate kiss in the center of a wonton wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp cloth or paper towel until ready to use.)

Moisten all four corner edges of the wonton wrappers with water; pinch corners together over candy kiss and press to seal. Repeat. In a large skillet, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees F.

Fry wontons on their sides for about two to three minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels and dust with sugar.

My family has made these cookies for many years. every time I get out the faded recipe card, I think of all the memories on Valentine's days in the past both in making the cookies and the smiles that are always there when I serve or give them away.

A Valentine's Day dessert. My Mom used to make this for for my Dad and she would prepare it in the Angel Food cake ring. She wrapped the pan's outside in foil to decorate it, and placed a bud vase, with a rose in it, in the middle.

Many of us are wondering what we can do to save some money this Valentine's Day and still say "I love you" to the wonderful people in our lives. So I scoured my mom's and aunt's and cousin's database for some fun and unusual chocolates for Valentine's Day just for you.

A heart drawn in chocolate.

Normally, I recommend avoiding sugar as much as possible - but once in a while (like on Valentines Day) it's okay. :)

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.

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

Regular cho-chips. you can also add nuts, rice crispies, coconut, etc. put a mini marshmellow in the funnel first, keeps the chocolate from dripping out.

I use Wilton Chocolate Melts sold at Michael's craft stores. It's very smooth and creamy chocolate. Also, they have peanut butter melts that are delicious!

I baked a scratch (no cake mixes) devil's food cake for our senior citizen luncheon. It's not the most beautiful decorated cake, but I think you get the idea.
