Who needs a reason to enjoy dessert for two? Cozy up with your sweetie pie and dig into these low carb, gluten-free desserts for two.
Funny how your ideas of a romantic dinner change as you get older. I used to think it couldn’t be romantic unless it was out at a dimly lit restaurant with hundreds of candles and a menu that forced me to use my abominable high school French. Maybe rose petals scattered somewhere and portions so small you had to look twice to make sure the waiter wasn’t hiding your main dish behind his back. And champagne, of course. And an insanely rich dessert that put you into a sugar coma at the first bite. Yes, as a young woman, I bought the Hollywood version of romantic dinner hook, line, and sinker.
Now, as I get ready to celebrate my 43rd birthday, all of that sounds like a tremendous amount of work. Instead of sounding romantic, it sounds utterly exhausting. I’d rather curl up with my honey on the couch after the kids are in bed, eating some low carb gooey dessert out of the same dish and catching up on our favourite show du jour (see what I did there? High school French!).
Chances are you feel the same way, so I thought I’d pull together my best desserts for two, as well some some wonderful two-serving recipes from other amazing low carb bloggers. Alas, desserts for two are few and far between. We all seem to have large families to feed. Or we just really like dessert. Or maybe a little bit of both. But I scoured the internet (i.e. Pinterest) and found you the best two-serving low carb (or paleo, with the ability to modify for low carb) desserts on the internet. So curl up with your honey and your show and dig in!
You can leave out the booze…but why would you want to?
This, my friends, is pure brownie heaven!
That chocolate raspberry combo is perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Okay, so this is actually a single-serve dessert…just double it and your honey will never know.
Like a Ferrero Rocher…in a mug!
