If you go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day, you can still impress your date with something you’ve whipped up. Save room for these Chocolate Filo Stacks.
You can bake the filo dough and prepare the pudding ahead; all that’s left to do when you get home is assemble the dessert, light some candles and pour the Champagne. (And if you have leftovers, refrigerate the pudding and store the filo squares in an airtight container to enjoy the next day.)
Decorate the stacks with red raspberries, mint leaves and a sprinkle of chopped chocolate. After all, you can never have enough chocolate on Valentine’s Day.
