Valentine's Day with Haagen-Dazs

Haagen-Dazs Ice-cream, Strawberry Cheesecake, Valentine's Day

This year's Valentine's Day is all about Sweets on my blog! I've previously written about Jelly Belly jelly beans Valentine's Day gifts, and use the jelly beans as part of an edible card. Today it's all about gourmet ice-cream for the special day!

Haagen-Dazs has always been loved by me and my family. Their ice-cream is creamy, taste gorgeous and comes in a lot of luxurious flavours. It'll make the perfect dessert for Valentine's Day, especially their Strawberry Cheesecake flavour, because of the strawberries of course! And it makes a surprise change from the classic chocolate flavour too.

Normally me and my hubby will just take a spoon each, cuddle in front of the TV and try to dig our way into the Haagen-Dazs tub. We just couldn't wait for it to dissolve to the perfect Ice-cream temperature!

But for Valentine's Day, I like to put in a bit more effort and present it specially:

with the Strawberry Cheesecake ice-cream melted to the right consistency and served with a dollop of whipped cream, chocolate flake bits and fresh strawberry. Mmmmm...

I must say that waiting for it to soften was the hardest thing to do, but it'll be well worth doing because all the flavour just comes through!

What will you be serving for dessert this Valentine's Day?
