With all the cold weekend nights we've had here in southern California this winter, my kids somehow talked me into making hot chocolate for them on a regular basis. On one of those evenings I discovered with horror that I had run out of marshmallows. There was a mutiny in my house, I tell you. Luckily I had some whipping cream which I quickly turned into the thickest, most velvety fluff ever. It was so addictive that I started making making homemade whipped cream way more often than I probably should have -- especially given how fattening it is -- but if you could see the looks on my kids' faces whenever I make it, you'd understand why I just couldn't resist.
I had to come up with more uses for all that whipped cream and so I've been letting Kenya and Chloe use heart-shaped cookie cutters in a variety of sizes to to pop out these adorable Puff Pastry Berry Hearts. We then fill them with fresh raspberries, whipped cream, and lots of their favorite toppings, creating these sweet little tarts.
If you want a super simple, totally lovely Valentine's Day dessert, this is the one for you!
