It’s February 14th—that extra special day of the year we get to spoil those in our life with extra love and attention. But what happens when work runs late, you get stuck in traffic and arrive home to your loved ones empty-handed?
We’ve just the thing—an easy and romantic Wisconsin cheese board! Food is the way to the heart, and this Valentine’s Day spread is a simple, sweet and sophisticated way to say I Love You.
Nothing says romance like chocolate-covered strawberries, and this mascarpone-stuffed version is extra decadent, requiring a quick 10 minutes to make. Sumptuous, slightly sweet Wisconsin mascarpone cheese is piped into fresh strawberries, which are then dipped in melted chocolate and sprinkled with chopped pistachios.
For a savory element, a wedge of Wisconsin blue to pair with dates and honey. The earthy, pungent flavor of blue cheese is balanced with a touch of sweetness. To round out this lover’s board, we’ve got nutty Wisconsin parmesan cheese, dark chocolate, fresh blackberries and extra pistachios. Optional (but highly recommended), a glass of bubbly prosecco for clinking with your special valentine.
