Valentines Parfait

jan projects 325

 You know what everyone loves?  Parfait!  Seeing as hidden hearts are all over the place at the moment I thought I’d hide them in this lovely dessert too.

(And yes, I know its not baking but it is larking around in the kitchen so that’s good enough for me!)

Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

Okay it’s not a pie, it’s a tart…. but I think sweet potato pie sounds better!

A thoroughly different use for Sweet Potato and a tough one to describe, think of the filling as a cross between cheesecake and a custard tart.

Valentines Chocolate Hearts

(and a flaming strawberry!)

A Valentines treat that’s definitely got some wow factor!

  There’s only one thing Mr C. loves more than cake and that’s ice cream so I’ve rustled up these Chocolate Valentines hearts especially.  The cake and icecream is simple to do, the flaming strawberry bit is a bit faffy so think about having a practice ‘flaming strawberry’ run in advance.

enough water to combine (2 -3 tablespoons)


70g fresh breadcrumbs (about 2 slices of fresh bread, blitzed)

2-3 large apples

(unpeeled my apples weigh about 550g, you will need enough apple that when peeled, cored and diced will cover the top of your tart case.
