White Chocolate Valentine’s Day Sweets

White chocolate is often dismissed as a pretender to the chocolate throne, but when  you get your hands on good, real white chocolate (at least 30 percent cocoa butter), you’ll discover complex aroma, gentle sweentess, and rich, full flavor that plays well with coffee, malt, and tart berry flavors—in other words, a star player for a Valentine’s Day dessert. Discover its versatility in these dozen recipes.

  • White Chocolate-Cherry Almond Crunch

    White Chocolate Cherry-Almond Crunch

    Flecked with tart cherries and crunchy toasted almonds set against a creamy backdrop of white chocolate, this crisp candy bar is a study in contrasts.
  • White Chocolate Mousse

    White Chocolate Mousse

    This simple eggless mousse puts the milky flavor of white chocolate center stage, highlighted by subtle molasses notes from raw cane sugar. Because this mousse contains little more than the ingredients found in white chocolate itself, it’s important to invest in the best quality you can find.
  • White Chocolate Layer Cake

    White Chocolate Layer Cake with White Chocolate Buttercream

    With a full pound of white chocolate split between the fluffiest yellow cake and the creamiest vanilla frosting, this ain’t no weeknight dessert. Seek out the right ingredients, take the time to pull it all together, and you’ll be rewarded with a special-occasion cake that truly celebrates the milky richness of white chocolate from the inside out.
  • Malted White Chocolate Streusel Bars

    Malted White Chocolate Streusel Bars

    This chewy bar cookie is like a cross between blondies and a coffee cake spiked with white chocolate. Finely chopped white chocolate melts to give the batter a fudgy richness, while heartier chunks make for creamy pockets in the streusel topping. Malted milk powder underscores the toasty, toffee-like flavors that white chocolate develops in the oven, while pinches of cinnamon and nutmeg highlight its buttery aroma.

    White Forest Cake

    This impressive spin on a Black Forest cake uses sweet white chocolate instead of dark chocolate. The cake and cherries can be prepared ahead, but the white chocolate mousse has to be made just before using. A few hours in the fridge firm up the mousse and give the cake a chance to absorb all the sweet cherry flavor. Pointy, curved white chocolate shards give it a sculptural, modern look (watch a video of how to make the shards).

  • Recipe

    White Chocolate and Sour Cherry Semifreddo

    Tart-sweet sour cherry jam beautifully offsets the creamy white chocolate in this dessert. For the best flavor, search out white chocolate made from cocoa butter, not vegetable fat as is found in some brands.

  • Recipe

    White Chocolate Soufflé Cakes with Raspberry-Chocolate Sauce

    This recipe provides a flavor twist on the now-classic molten chocolate cake. You put a ball of raspberry-flavored ganache in each ramekin and top with cake batter; as the cakes bake, the ganache melts into a warm, sumptuous sauce.
