Black Forrest Inspired Valentines using homemade whip cream, cherry sauce and chocolate brownies.
Decadent chocolate Brownies with homemade whip cream and cherry sauce transforms this German classic into easy and delicious valentines. The richness of the brownie is perfectly complemented by the airy whip cream and slightly tart cherry sauce. So get thee into the miracle room and whip up a batch!
I’ll admit, Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday. As a kid I thought it awkward to hand out ‘Be Mine’s’ to all of the kids in the class, like they made us. What if one of the boys got the wrong message. Does this valentine obligate me to accept a date proposal? A kiss? The dilemmas I dealt with in 4th grade were quite traumatic. I may need therapy due to this confusing holiday. My favorite holiday is April Fools Day, What’s yours? Leave a comment:)
High quality brownie mix saves some time and keeps your shopping list a little shorter. I look for the most expensive decadent looking mix and have never been disappointed. If you are a diehard, from-scratch baker, no worries, just whip up your own brownie mix. Just bake the brownies 10 minutes less than you normally would since we are making a thinner cake.
I used a 30 cm tart pan which made about 1/2 inch brownies. I liked this thickness but feel free to experiment with a different thickness.
While the brownie is in the oven, make your whip cream. I used gelatin to stabilize the whipped cream, a little insurance, but it is optional.
You can make double decker valentines for a really impressive look or stick with the single decker. With the single decker you get more valentines and they are easier to eat.
For the double decker just frost in between the layers with whip cream and top with whip cream and cherry sauce, garnish with powdered sugar.
