This individual mixed berry galette with chocolate crust are pretty enough for a celebratory dinner but easy enough to make for a casual meal.

I’ll be honest when I tell you that AJ and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day that much. It’s not that we aren’t romantic (a friend of mine once called AJ and I “the most sappy couple I am friends with!”) But when you’ve been together as long as AJ and I have been, we feel less pressure to celebrate. But when Sprouts Farmers Market approached me to create a Valentine’s Day dessert for two, I jumped at the chance. What would be more celebratory than an individual Mixed Berry Galette with Chocolate Crust? (Jump directly to the recipe.)

I love the idea of making smaller batch desserts for just the two of us as it means no leftovers! It’s not that I don’t love baking desserts for larger crowds. In fact it’s one of my favorite thing to do. But when it’s just AJ and me in this house, sharing a meal, having a big leftover batch of desserts is just not something I need tempting us.

I’ve always loved making galettes, which are fancy little tarts that are easy-to-make. When you make individual ones, they feel all the more special but the secret is they are super simple. Slightly rustic looking, with the folded over crust on top, they look surprisingly fancy plated and served to your loved one. And the chocolate crust, made with cocoa powder, comes together fast.

So this Valentine’s Day, even though we’re not those sort of folks, I’ll be whipping up these galettes anyway. I’ll probably skip the bubble bath and candles though. We have to draw the line somewhere.

We believe that every day should be Valentine’s Day! Not that it would be gushy and over the top in the gifts and such. Nope! We believe it’s the little considerations that count. So I don’t have to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day — I’m positive you’ll have one.

This looks fun! My SO isn’t a cake person, so this might be a perfect dessert for a fancier dinner. Thanks for sharing!
