If you're looking for a perfect Valentine's Day dessert for two, look no further than the romantically classic coeur à la crème. This dainty, creamy heart—the name literally translates into "heart of cream"—is rich, sweet, and meant to be shared. You'll need a coeur à la crème mold, which can be made of either porcelain or plastic.
