Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and you’re probably planning how to make the day a memorable one for you and your partner.

Then, add a layer of blackberries and blueberries, followed by layers of custard and whipped cream. For the ultimate touch, incorporate almond and orange notes for a tasty treat.

Double Chocolate Mocha Mousse

Chocolate mousse seems like something you’d find at a fancy restaurant, but you can make it at home, too! To make this decadent mocha mousse, melt bittersweet and semisweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Then whisk two egg yolks, ½ cup heavy cream, 1½ tsp espresso powder, and 4 tbsp granulated sugar in a small saucepan, heating for 2 minutes.

Pour the egg mixture into the chocolate, mix, and refrigerate for 25 minutes. Then mix 1 tbsp granulated sugar and 1 cup of cream with an electric mixer, fold into chocolate mixture, and refrigerate for 20 minutes before serving. No oven necessary!

Vanilla Yogurt and Berry Trifle

This trifle is sweet, fruity, and perfectly on the theme for Valentine’s Day with the red berries. You don’t need an oven to make this treat; just whisk sugar, strawberry and raspberry juice, and cornstarch in a saucepan, boil for 2 minutes, transfer to a bowl, and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Salty Peanut Banana Pudding

A salty dessert always hits the right spot. For this treat, you don’t need to bake anything in the oven, but you do need to heat stuff on the stove.

Cook on medium heat for about 8 minutes, remove from heat, then whisk in 2 tsp vanilla and peanut butter.

Then arrange 25 wafers in the bottom of an 8×8 inch baking dish, top with ¼ cup peanuts, two medium sliced ripe bananas, and hot pudding. Then, top with another layer of wafers, bananas, and peanuts. Cover and chill for 4 hours, then whisk 1 tsp vanilla, 3 tbsp sugar, and 1¼ cup cream with an electric mixer. Spread over the chilled pudding and sprinkle with ¼ cup peanuts.
