Chocolate Marshmallow Duet for #SundaySupper recipes for Two

chocolate marshmallow duet

What can I say about Valentine’s Day? We have a love-hate relationship. Some of my best memories stem from February 14th and some of my worst. Cupid doesn’t have the best aim.

I almost didn’t participate this week because I wasn’t sure how to approach writing my post. Angel on one shoulder, Devil on the other. 😉
I needed to focus on the positive. First, I positively love chocolate. Second, I positively love being part of Sunday Supper!
That made it a little easier. I chose to make a recipe adapted from my first acquired cookbook, called Cooking for Two. I bought the cookbook 40 years ago when it was popular to start a “hope chest” and fill it with things you need when you first get married. Stuff like dishes, cooking tools, pots and pans, towels, et cetera. You get the picture. I still have the real cedar chest, too. Now it is filled with pictures and memories.

Thanks Susan for hosting this week! You can find her most days at The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen where she makes you feel very welcome.

This light dessert has the rich flavor of dark chocolate marshmallow pudding with the texture of a mousse.
