Valentine’s Day 2024: 5 Red-Coloured Desserts To Indulge

Valentine’s Day is a festival of love and no other colour can signify the occasion better than red. This bright colour is known to express strong emotions and is associated with passionate love and desire. Besides red roses and red teddy bears, eating red-coloured food is also a trend on this day.  

Many restaurants curate a red-themed menu for Valentine’s week, but if you are planning to keep this year’s celebrations low-key and intimate, organising a dinner at home is the best thing you can do. So, to conclude your meal, serve some simple yet decadent red desserts that are visually appealing along with being rich and tasty. These sweet treats are easy to prepare and are perfectly suitable to glamorise your romantic evening. 

Red Velvet Pudding  

This rich and mouth-watering dessert is made with whole milk, cocoa powder, all-purpose flour and granulated sugar. The vibrant and yummy red velvet pudding is best served by layering the dish in a glass bowl. To give a more appealing look to your pudding, top it off with whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings. 

Cranberry Curd Tart  

The silky-smooth texture of cranberry tart perfectly blends with the sweetened orange juice zest. The prepared curd mixture is poured in an oatmeal cinnamon crust and baked for an hour.  However, for the best results you need to chill the tart in the refrigerator for up to four hours. The leftovers can be stored for up to two days at room temperature. 

Red Velvet Sugar Cookies 

Prepare these cookies on Valentine’s Day and relish it with your partner for up to half a month. Made with egg yolk, peanut butter, all-purpose flour, red gel food colouring and unsweetened cocoa powder, these yummy cookies are thick, vibrant, soft and chewy. You can scatter a few white chocolate chips over the top to enhance the taste and texture of the cookies.  

Red Oreo Truffles 

Made with your favourite Oreo cookies, this mouth melting dessert just needs three ingredients; red velvet cookies, cream cheese and melting chocolate. Prepared in less than an hour, these truffles can also be garnished with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Red Oreo truffles can be stored in the refrigerator for up to four days.
