Ok, first I have to apologize. This is NOT the recipe for cream cheese brownies that I've been promising. I will get that posted soon. I will, no really, I will!!! But for today, I'm bumping some old posts here by way of wishing everybunny a Happy Valentine's Day.
Be sure to take a trip back a year and visit the Valentine's Day Carnival of the Recipes, which has some truly splendelicious goodies for you and your Valentine.
And here are some pictures I shared many moons ago, of a fun and scrummy Valentine's Tea Party I had:
I just used a brownie mix, and these cute little heart-shaped tins I found in the baking aisle.
Added some chocolate kisses to the plate because ... well... you can never have too much chocolate.
The perfect complement to go with the brownies: Rosebud Gong Fu tea, which just arrived from JingTeas.com.
This is the perfect tea. I lovelovelove it. Lightly scented/flavored, and there are tiny little rosebuds right in the tea. It's a treat for all the senses. Pretty to look at, wonderful smell, the taste is perfect, and the little afterbreath of roses is delightful.
And of course, the only possible china to use was my gold-rimmed roses cup and plate.
