Valentine's Things We Love
When you like someone berry much...
Say Happy Valentine's with chocolate-covered strawberries. And not just any chocolate. Ghirardelli. And not just any covering. Hand-dipped. Look for the 6-count or 12-count in the produce section. Otherwise, stock up on berries and chocolate and start dipping.
Hyvee Culinary Expert TipWhen melting chocolate, make sure it is always uncovered. Covering the chocolate will allow steam to build up and allow water to drop into the chocolate causing it to seize and become grainy and thick instead of smooth and silky.
Hyvee Culinary Expert TipMolten lava cake is actually a simple make-ahead dessert! Just prepare the batter, divide into ramekins, and store in the fridge until you're ready to bake. Then 20 minutes before you're ready for dessert, pop 'em in the oven.
