A few wonderful things happened on the weekend; for some it was the Super Bowl, for others (including me) it was all about Beyonce’s new video and song Formation which has been playing on repeat in my house for over one hour haha. In general I’m gonna say it was a weekend of good vibes. Not bad considering cupid celebrations are all over the place and Valentine’s Day is happening next week which I’m not a fan of..sorry!
However, I do have a recipe that you can either use for Valentine’s Day or make it for yourself or your lover just because (no need to get cupid into it!). There’s definitely a little bit of influence from Vday with the blood orange situation, and they’re also in season, so let’s take advantage of that.
This dessert is a deconstructed version of the classic; I swapped the marshmallows for soft meringue, I made some quick dark chocolate ganache to make it a bit more dashing, and I crumbled the graham crackers around it to dress it up a-la modern cuisine. To cut through the richness, I placed a few segments of fresh blood orange which goes really well with the whole thing. It may sound like a lot of prep, but it seriously takes an hour or so to get it all done, or even better, you can do some of the items the night before.
