I recently have fallen in love with the idea of making skillet desserts. You know, those cute little desserts that are baked in a small cast iron skillet and make just enough for two to share? Those little desserts for two that are just oozing with yummy goodness! Yeah, those desserts for two!
Since our son has gone off to college and our youngest daughter is away with the Navy, most of the time there’s just my husband and I at home. I often times still cook as though there are 10 of us, but I’ve gotten better about cooking smaller portions.
I also thought these little desserts for two would make a nice addition to any Valentine’s Day dinner, anniversary, birthday or any occasion where you’d like a nice little dessert.
