Valentine’s Day: Skip the Pre-Fixe and Order the Ultimate Date Night In January 28, 2021
Finally, the pressure to dine out for an excessively expensive, ultimately underwhelming Valentine’s Day pre-fixe meal is gone. *Collective shoulder drop.* Now what?? As usual, HelloFresh has got your back.
Impress your loved one (or ones—you can order for 2 or 4 people!) with this mouthwatering, Cupid-approved 3-course feast. Because nothing says “I love you” like a home-cooked meal—especially one that comes with molten chocolate lava cakes. So put on your favorite playlist, chill a bottle of bubbly (or stir up one of these romantic cocktails), and get cookin’. The ultimate date night is just 45 minutes away.
To start, you’ll make Honey Ricotta Crostini: Toasty slices of baguette topped with pillowy ricotta, hot honey, walnuts, and a sprinkle of chives. This bite is the perfect balance of sweet, savory, and spicy to get your appetite going. Serve immediately for snacking while you prepare the rest of the meal, or save for serving with the main course! There are no rules.
For the main event, you’ll prepare Bruschetta Chicken with a Crispy Mozzarella Crust, Bacon Mashed Potatoes, and Lemony Asparagus. Yes, it’s as delicious (and far less complicated to make) than it sounds. Truly, the oven does most of the work here. Plus, our chefs have made it so you can easily multi-task. While the chicken bakes to perfection, you’ll be searing bacon and letting the potatoes boil away. Annnd while the asparagus roasts, you’ll be whipping up the bruschetta topping. Easy! The end result will have you swooning.
Finally, for dessert: Chocolate Lava Cakes (’nuff said). All you have to do is warm them up until the center turns molten. If you have a microwave, that means 30-45 seconds (we’re serious). We highly recommend topping the cakes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of warm caramel, and a pinch of crunchy sea salt. Or, pile on whatever your heart desires: fresh berries, powdered sugar, rainbow sprinkles, BBQ sauce…well, maybe not that last one. Prepare to fall in lava. (Get it?!)
How much does it cost?
This 3-course Valentine’s Day meal is just a $9.99/serving upcharge.
I’m sold. How do I order??
Simply choose the “Be Mine Bruschetta Chicken” in your Sat 2/6 to Fri 2/12 menu. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
Valentine’s victory is just a click away. Psst, don’t forget to snap pics for the ’gram using #HelloFreshPics!
