I love Valentine’s Day!!! I feel like I say this every year in my Valentine’s Day post, but this holiday gets a lot of hate for being a made-up holiday. Aside from the fact that the holiday is named after a Saint, much like St. Patrick’s Day (which people don’t seem to be complaining about), it’s also a holiday promoting love. We shouldn’t need an excuse to celebrate love, we should be celebrating it every day, but why not have a day that revolves around love?! Plus, I’ll take any excuse for a theme, and to create a delicious dessert like this red wine chocolate creme brulee.
This recipe was actually not inspired by Valentine’s day, but by a friend’s birthday. My friend and I have a lot in common, and we constantly discover new similarities. Of the many things we have in common, our shared love of popcorn, wine, and desserts, especially creme brulee, are some of my favorites. In brainstorming ideas for her birthday dessert, I decided to combine some of our favorite things into this dessert. There’s not popcorn, but there is wine and chocolate in creme brulee form. And that’s pretty amazing, right??
As I was planning 2020 recipes, I knew that this would be the perfect Valentine’s day recipe. Red wine and chocolate make for such a romantic and delicious combo! Share your love with your partner, your girlfriends, your family, or anyone special in your life (except your pets) by impressing them with this super easy, insanely delicious treat!
So do your Valentine’s plans include a night out on the town, or a cozy and romantic night in? Are you more of a fan of Galentine’s day? Or do you ignore it altogether? This year we’ll be celebrating a day late with a night at the theater after a quick dinner out before the show. Leave me a note in the comments with how you love to celebrate Valentine’s day!
