Pinterest Picks – Decadent Raspberry Desserts

By Monday, February 8, 2016 3 Permalink

The last thing you probably want to think about after Super Bowl weekend is food, right? Especially not dessert! Well, too bad because it’s time to talk sweets. Come on, it’s Valentine’s Day month so everything sugary and yummy and decadent needs to go in your mouth. Is that so wrong? I implore you to treat yo’ self to dessert this month. This is the last good holiday until 4th of July (no offense Easter) so get your sweets on.

Since I already wrote about chocolate desserts last February, I decided that decadent raspberry desserts were perfectly festive for this year. These need to be desserts that you wouldn’t necessarily decide to make on an every day basis. Like brownies or cookies. These treats need to be a little upscale, a little bakery style, and definitely decadent. But it’s Valentine’s Day, so you want these dessert to look amazing too. If you tackle one of the desserts below, you’re not only trying to induce a satisfying food coma, you’re trying to visually show off. What’s the point of making something so beautiful if you don’t have an appreciative audience? These babies look so good they could even be presents themselves. Like heyyy, I made you some éclairs. Boom. Queue Marvin Gaye.
