Happy Valentine's Day

Even though I don't really celebrate this holiday, here're two holiday appropriate recipes. You can make them soon and still have them ready in time for later tonight.

Chocolate Dipped Raspberries

2 dozen long-stemmed raspberries
3 oz. german chocolate
1 oz. bittersweet chocolate
2 oz. white chocolate

Melt white chocolate over double boiler, stirring constantly.

Dip as many of the raspberries as you can in these (10-12) and lay on a cookie sheet that's been covered in wax paper.

Melt german and bittersweet chocolate together over a double boiler while stirring constantly. Dip remaining raspberries in it and lay on wax paper.

Refrigerate until chocolate has hardened. If you are interested in doing so, you can dip the hardened white chocolate raspberries into the remainder of the german/bittersweet chocolate mixture, or melt a couple ounces of plain bittersweet to re-dip the white chocolate ones.

Store in an airtight container.

and...

Chocolate Covered Pine Nuts

3 oz. russian dark chocolate
5 oz. pine nuts

Melt chocolate. Toss with pine nuts. Dry on wax paper.

Both of these are really easy to make, and tasty.
