Triple Chocolate Sundaes (Ultimate Recipe Swap: Valentine’s Day)

Three forms of chocolate, brownie, ice cream, and syrup, come together for a delicious Valentine’s treat.

At our house, Valentine’s Day is definitely a family affair. While hubs and I cherish our date nights, we’re not going to pay high prices or beat the crowds to get a table while dining out. Instead, we hunker down at home for a yummy meal together.

For the last few years, I’ve made our “First Date Meal.” I can’t remember where I got the idea, but since it’s a meal that most of us like anyway, I make Chicken Parmesan every Valentine’s Day, typically served with spaghetti and steamed broccoli or a salad. In years past, I’ve baked my own bread, but next week, I think I’ll have hubs pick up some baguette on his way home from work. We usually end the meal with some kind of chocolate.

I don’t know that we had chocolate on our first date, but who can say no to chocolate?

So how ’bout a Triple Chocolate Sundae for dessert? And you don’t even have to wait until Valentine’s Day.

How ’bout you?

  1. Thank you for hosting. I can’t wait to see all the desserts this week. I shared my chocolate espresso mousse. It’s very easy to make but tastes like you took hours to make it.

  2. Thanks for hosting. Excited to see what inspiration gets linked up!

  3. Just wanted to suggest an easy way for you and the fam to enjoy fresh bread daily with very little extra effort. I first started with this link then I bought the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Is absolutely delicious, very easy and inexpensive!

      Yes, it is good. I do that off and on, but we go through it so quickly and the dough box takes up so much room in the fridge, that I don’t always have it going. We have an awesome French bakery, though, that is a special treat. I just can’t make it as good as they do.

  4. Oh, THANK YOU for posting this. This mom-of-4-and-newly-pregnant-again will make GOOD use of this recipe!!! (And I LOVE your backdrop for the glass. Awesome.) 😀

  5. That looks fabulous! Yummy! It’s kind of nice to hear about other couples who are doing Valentine’s dates at home. We will be too, but sometimes I worry we’re not being romantic enough or something. As I write that, it sounds so silly but it’s true 🙂

  6. I love the “first date” meal idea. Our first date was at Pizza Hut (eeewww!), but the first thing I cooked for him was stomboli. He remembers it well and says if he wasn’t already in love with me he would have been after that meal.

  7. ::sniff:: no sweets to contribute (except the nutella hot chocolate deal, but that’s not valentine’s day worthy 🙂 ) … gosh, I’m gonna have to work out extra hard after looking at some of these recipes!!!

  8. Does anyone else use the certificates? I’ve used a few for places we’ve never been too and have found a few new favorite spots (but unfortunately, without the certificates, its not a great savings!) … I have a few left from when I bought them at 90% off … read the fine print before committing to them!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
