I was always a fan of fresh strawberries with a few scoops of bourbon vanilla ice cream. Simple is beautiful.

Bryant, when is this for? I was planning on making a thread either tonight or tomorrow with pictures; I'm going to attempt to make a sort of chocolate "torchon". No baking involved. The only heat you need is for melting chocolate and boiling some honey. Hopefully I'll have this up tonight, and I'll link to the thread if you're still in need of an idea.

How about kahlua parfaits? In tall glasses (champagne/parfait) sprinkle a teaspoonful or so of toasted sliced almonds, drizzle some kahlua, add a scoop of coffee or vanilla ice cream, repeat the layers. Top with sweetened whipped cream and more toasted almonds. Serve with long handled spoons and feed each other. After dinner coffee and dessert all in one. Yummy.
Katie, I love that idea! Thanks!!!

Strawberries and a bowl of whipped cream. You have to eat it with your fingers...and feed it to each other. Optional accompaniments would be a bowl of sugar in the raw, and a bottle of anisette. Dip the berries first in the anisette, then the sugar and then the cream.

Romance doesn't have to mean spectacular presentation. It's more about sharing something intimate.

Are you thinking of a chocolate meringue? You need an oven to make meringues, but they are good filled with fresh fruit.
