I’ve been debating about doing decadent chocolate desserts for Valentine’s Day. There are so many chocolate recipes that you have plenty of options. But what about white chocolate? Some chocolate experts feel that white chocolate is not true chocolate since it doesn’t contain cocoa solids. White chocolate is actually made with cocoa butter, sugar and milk solids.
I for one, think white chocolate is delicious. I love the smooth creamy texture and rich buttery flavor. Judging from the number of products and recipes made with white chocolate, I would say I’m not alone.
The recipe that made me think of white chocolate was the decadently delicious White Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding finished with hot caramel sauce. The banana bread is easy to make with Martha White® Banana Nut Flavored Muffin Mix (you can make the bread in advance and refrigerate or freeze to get a head start). The custard mixture is made with white chocolate chips, cream, eggs and sugar. Pour custard mixture over bread, cover with foil and bake. No water bath needed.
If bread pudding is not your loved one’s favorite food choice, there are many other options. How about a Luscious Lemon White Chocolate Tart or Blueberry White Chocolate Macadamia Muffins? Any of these options would make a great Valentine’s Day breakfast treat or snack to share with friends and co-workers. Any of these delicious white chocolate recipes will say “I love you” on Valentine’s Day or any day of the year.
