Heart Cookies and Brownies

These were some treats we made for the week surrounding Valentine’s Day. Most were shared with friends, and a few were saved for us to enjoy. I wasn’t really pleased with either cookie recipe, so I won’t be sharing them but the brownie recipe was one I’ve already shared here and enjoy.

Hot Chocolate Panna Cotta for Two

Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day! I recently made a dinner that required 1 cup of heavy cream. This can be exciting, because it means I have 1 cup remaining in my pint container for something else….but what to make? You could double the original dinner recipe, but that wasn’t necessary. Also, many recipes require 2 cups of cream. In fact, this recipe originally did. But, the recipe (with 2 cups) would make more than we could eat before the panna cotta would start to be less yummy (according to Dorie). So, halving the recipe would be great! In general, it was easy, although some ingredient amounts got fudged a bit (haha). But, it is such a good recipe, that it didn’t even matter. It really does taste like cold hot chocolate, and the version I am sharing is perfect to whip up during a baby’s 30 minute nap, and then eat it with your husband when he comes home that night. You know, if you’re me. Otherwise, you could make it whenever you like, just know it needs a few hours to set.
