Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (I really can’t believe it is 2017…where did Christmas go?!), and its time to start planning. I always like to do something romantic for my husband because we have a lot of milestones in a short period of time, and he really deserves a break. December brings our anniversary and Christmas, and January has my birthday, so by February, it is more than time to plan a Valentine’s Day surprise for him. Because I am over 6 months pregnant (and growing!), I thought a romantic evening at home would be the perfect date night for us.
I love to cook, and of course Baby K has a major sweet tooth (it’s him causing it, I swear…), and I wanted to make a special dessert for Neil. I found Gold Leaf Gourmet, which helps you make easy and delicious desserts. Basically, all I had to do was pick a dessert and all of the ingredients were sent right to my doorstep and ready for me to whip up!
I selected the Caramel Swirl Cheesecakes because I love mini-sized desserts, and I thought Neil and I would enjoy saving a few for another day! Making them was a breeze because the box comes with an instruction card with pictures that details the recipe. Also, all of the ingredients are already measured out for you, so there is no guess work involved.
These cheesecakes are so cute and are the perfect serving size. We definitely didn’t feel like we were weighed down after eating them, but they are so decadent and delicious. If cheesecake isn’t your jam, there are so many other options – from Double Chocolate Decadence to Raspberry Almond Napoleons.
