Valentine’s Day is approaching, and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a sweet ravioli dessert for two…or even better for one so you can have it all to yourself.
You can’t go wrong with a sweet, tender muffin with chunks of banana and toasty pecan pieces, topped with a silky, rich chocolate ganache.
I’ve been loving the combo of dark chocolate and nuts, so I wanted to create something that incorporates them both. There’s just something about creamy, smooth chocolate with a little nutty crunch. Instead of making a traditional cookie, I’m keeping it on the light side. Meringue basically consists of egg whites that are beaten until thick. There’s so much you can do with meringue, but I like to just dollop little mounds onto a baking sheet and bake them until crisp. A perfect, somewhat lighter treat if you are craving something sweet.
