Raspberry Napoleans – Valentine’s Day Dessert!
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year. It’s a day devoted to sharing your heart with those special to you, whether it’s your significant other, child, parent or friends. If you’re not one to share your feelings much, Valentine’s Day gives you reason to do so. Of course, this has never been an issue for me – I make no bones about sharing my feelings anytime.
If you get my monthly newsletter then you’ve already seen a special Valentine’s Day dessert plus this one. However, if you don’t receive it, then here’s a wonderful dessert that looks difficult but is quite simple. Taking no time to prepare the end result is tasty, pretty and the perfect expression of your affection!
Although I’m demonstrating this dessert in a heart shape, you could cut it to be any shape from squares, triangles, to holiday shapes. Add raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries – any type of berry or blend of berries to suit your taste.
Here’s a how-to video I put together to assist, when you’re ready to make Raspberry Napoleans -blended with one of my favorite love songs by Anita Baker, called “Rapture.”
Below the video is the recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
