Pairing wine and chocolate for Valentine’s Day

Pairing Wine and Chocolate

This Valentine’s Day instead of buying a heart shaped box of chocolate and bottle of generic wine, consider pairing a fine selection of chocolates from Fannie May with the perfect wine selection to impress your sweetheart.
Some say it can’t be done, pairing wine with chocolate however they are natural companions. Both have complex flavors and notes, both have similar components and nuances in common. If you have the right wine to complement the right chocolate it can be a match made in heaven!

Chocolate chip cheesecake with Oreo crust

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with Oreo Crust

Growing up, the cookie of choice in our house were Oreos. There was nothing better than a few cookies, broken apart, and then dunked in ice cold milk for an evening snack after homework.
When I recently ran across this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with Oreo Crust, I knew I found a perfect dessert to make for Valentine’s Day. What could be better than the creaminess of cheesecake, the crunchy goodness of Oreos, and the sweet taste of chocolate rolled into one delicious dessert.
