Meringues

This Valentine's Day, why not skip the meal and just get to what we all really want: dessert. (As in, actual dessert.) Here's a round-up of sweet treats we'd love to be treated to: 

Drunken S'more Cake

Isn't getting a little drunk and a little messy the recipe for a perfect Valentine's Day? This playful riff on the campfire classic will definitely get you into the spirit. 

Chocolate Budino with Candied Hazelnuts and Grapefruit

This elegant, rich pudding is extra-decadent topped with Campari-scented grapefruit peel and toasted, sugar-slicked hazelnuts. 

Blue Cheese Cheesecake with Candied Walnut Crust, Serrano-Style Ham Crisp, and Apple-Rum Caramel Sauce

For a Valentine who likes a dessert that melds sweet and salty, try this showstopping cheesecake from chef Brian Alberg of the Red Lion Inn in the Berkshires. 

Dark Chocolate-Dipped Cinnamon Meringues

These delicate hearts are adorable on their own and even better dipped in chocolate. For extra credit, pack in cellophane bags and tie with a satiny red or pink ribbon.
