Emergency Romance!

 Is your dessert menu for tonight as empty as this bowl???
It's okay, Besties, we're here for you.
If you have 20 minutes, I can have a spread as decadent as original sin in your
fridge waiting to spark romance!
Easy and inexpensive, this will become your go to dessert spread!
 You'll need 5 packages of semi sweet baking chocolate.
Unwrap two and break them up into a microwave safe bowl.
Take one can of this stuff...
Pour it over the chocolate.
Microwave this for 1 1/2 minutes, stir it thoroughly,
 then zap it for 30 more seconds.
Stir it until smooth.
This is my new best friend.
Available in the craft section at Walmart, this is flavoring on steroids.
Pour one of these suckers in and mix it up.
Toss in two cups of shredded coconut, blending thoroughly.
Scrape the whole mess into a 9x9 greased pan and refrigerate.
You just made my Sunshine State Fudge.
Don't wash that bowl yet!
 You're about to use it again.
 Bust up the next 3 boxes of chocolate,
 Pour one cup of this stuff over it and nuke...er...MICROWAVE it for two minutes.
It'll look like this.
Don't panic.
Stir until it looks more like this.
This is a basic truffle recipe.
 You'll need one of these bad boys.
Yes, you could make your own, but the clock is ticking!
 There's no time!
 Pour the chocolate into the shell.
Remove the plastic first.
I shouldn't have to say that, but there's a reason curling irons
are marked "For External Use Only."
I want to meet the person that made that necessary.
Seriously.
 Now grab a jar of this.
Glop it on the pie with an ordinary spoon.
 Use the spoon to swirl it in loosely.
 Garnish with something non-poisonous.
Again, I should not have to tell you that.
I used fresh mint.
Pop it in the fridge til set.
That would be Sunny's Raspberry Truffle Pie.
Notice, you have a bowl, a spatula, and a spoon to wash,
and two gourmet desserts in the fridge.
When both are chilled, cut the fudge into squares and amaze your Valentines!
The kids are coming home tonight, and I'm soooo ready!

For a heart healthy and diabetes friendly start to your night,
visit my real life BFF Michael's blog for some delicious entrees 
that might just counteract what I just made.
