If you’re looking for Valentine’s Day recipes, here are some ideas:
How about strawberries dressed in tuxedos? Maybe a Double Chocolate Bundt Cake with a sticky chocolate ganache glaze? If you have the time, the Brownies I designed exclusively for Dolce & Gabbana will surely impress! Or you can try my favorite, Devil’s Food Cake with Biscoff Ganache. Don’t have the time, energy or ingredients to bake anything? I still have a recipe for you. With just chocolate and water (seriously, only two ingredients), you can prepare The Best Chocolate Mousse of Your Life under 5 minutes.
Pomegranates are in season. How about a candy-pink pomegranate frozen yogurt?
Strawberries aren’t in season, but this Strawberry, White Chocolate and Yogurt Tart screams Valentine’s Day!
The Double Chocolate Bundt Cake is the best cake in my repertoire. With the sticky chocolate ganache glaze, it is completely irresistible.
Speaking of chocolate, this chocolate cheesecake recipe is a winner.
So are the Korova cookies.
… these Strawberry Tuxedos…
… an orange-scented chocolate and almond cake covered with a lacquer chocolate glaze, called L’Orange…
And “Brownies My Way“!
How about Caramel Beurre Sale sandwich cookies with Henri Le Roux’s “Caramelier” spread in the middle?
Or this Devil’s Food Cake with a Biscoff ganache in the middle, decorated with chocolate shards to look like a million bucks?
And if you really want to impress, take a look at the Brownies I designed exclusively for Dolce & Gabbana. Chocolate lace, dear reader, chocolate lace…
You don’t have the time or ingredients to bake any of these? I still have a recipe for you. With just chocolate and water (seriously, only two ingredients), you can prepare The Best Chocolate Mousse of Your Life under 5 minutes.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
With treats like these, anyone would be lucky to be your valentine!
Oh I love your tuxedo strawberries, I was admiring them the other day!
I was all prepared to make a nutella tart for V-Day but then I pooped out tonight–maybe I can squeeze making it in before dinner tomorrow… your creations are an inspiration! 🙂
Those are just beautiful! I’m hoping to make some Valentine’s cookies with my kiddos tomorrow, but we’ll have to see if I have the energy or not 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration!
Brilynn – Thank you 🙂
Robin – Thanks! The Nutella Tart is to die for. Hope you like it, too!
Jenni – You’re welcome. Happy V Day!
Hey Cenk … with you a very Happy Valentines day as well 🙂
Love the strawberry tux … so creative that one 🙂
That strawberry tart looks wonderful! Thanks for some great ideas!
Am I the only person who’s never heard of drawing tuxedos on strawberries?! They look very cute. That raspberry and pistachio tart is now on my to-do list.
Happy Valentine’s Day Cenk!
Wow. Those are really pretty desserts!!
very cute…. and very delicious 😀 hmmmm
You seem to have a special way with pistachios 😉
Everything in this post looks delicious!
That raspberry and pistachios tart is really one of my favorites of yours! Happy belated V-Day!
How adorable and perfect looking!
Thanks for the inspiration.

Love the little tuxedo strawberries. Very cute and chic.
it all looks so DELICIOUS!!!! can’t wait to start making them, one after the other! Thank you!!!! and keep inspiring us…
Some really cute dishes here but I especially like the strawberry tuxedos.
I would definitely welcome any of these treats for Valentine’s day!
The little tuxedo strawberries drew my attention of foodgawker, left me literally gawking!
What an ingenious idea for the Valentine’s day!
I would’t wanna eat them, just looks so cute…
Is there a relation with love and chocolate?
Happy valentines day Cenk. Hope you have a wonderful day.
Beautiful photos, beautiful recipes and beautiful everything….
Made your brownies this weekend but without milk chocolate glaze: they were just perfect! I thought I might try to add finely chopped candied orange zest – I simply adore the combination of two aromas: bittersweet chocolate and orange – have you ever tried that in brownies?! Have a great V-day and thanks for the recipe! Your photos are delicious as well!
Ivana – Glad to hear you liked it. If you adore the combination of chocolate and orange then you have to try this: L’Orange.
Wooow! I think I’m dying… I have only tried your brownies (your way-) a couple of time. Wonderful! But seeing all together just makes me want to cook at 23:53pm. This is dangerous! And so beautiful! You just make us happy Cenk! 🙂
These wonderful creations and photos are just amazing. I don’t know what one to pick first, I like them all!
Sweet love,very cute
