How fitting is it that Friday the 13th falls the day before Valentine's Day this year? Hell yeah, morbidity!
Just in case your day goes to shit and your boyfriend dumps you, I've got you covered. (That's what internet friends are for, right?)
Pots de creme are my absolute favorite desserts. They are so so so simple to make and, let's face it, there are very few things as satisfying as digging into a rich, creamy, personal-sized custard. I've made them plenty of times before, but I wanted to keep it extra-indulgent (because #loveyoself) this time around, so I added in a little too much white chocolate and vanilla bean. Can you say, best mistake ever?
Conversation hearts, on the other hand..... not my favorite. I often consider them the culinary equivalent of a stick of chalk. But really, they're just too damn cute not to make their way into my pantry every Valentine's Day. To make them more palatable, I ground them in a food processor and infused some heavy cream with the powdery dust. A pinch of salt, a good helping of vanilla, and a quick whip with the help of my stand mixer = the least Pepto Bismol-y, fluffiest conversation heart whipped cream to ever exist! I could bathe in this stuff.
