It's that time of year, ladies and gentleman, VALENTINE'S DAY! Stores are already beginning to overflow with pink and red hearts, candies, and love notes. For those of you who didn't know, there are many ways to win your lady's heart. Two of them--SHOES and CHOCOLATE! These sweet, red pumps will win that gal over, no doubt.

  • 6 (1-ounce) squares bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 (1-ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Grease 6 (6-ounce) custard cups. Melt the chocolates and butter in the microwave, or in a double boiler. Add the flour and sugar to chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and yolks until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and orange liqueur. Divide the batter evenly among the custard cups. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. The edges should be firm but the center will be runny. Run a knife around the edges to loosen and invert onto dessert plates.

Long Week?

Let it all out tonight! This is going to be one giant dance party.. and it's Friday, so it's okay to stay out late, right??

And let me just say, I LOVE this new black pump that we just got in from Biviel. It's the perfect combo of basic black with just a few extra details, like the super cute cut-outs and the wood heel. Very comfortable with the support you need to dance like crazy! BV2938, $155.
