To round out the week of Valentine’s Day recipes and menu ideas, we’ve saved one of the best, most decadent, sinful desserts for last.

Even though many of us never eat dessert, except for special occasions, most of us opt for some sort of sweet on Valentine’s Day.  So why not go completely overboard with dessert for your sweetheart?  For our last Valentine’s themed dessert, we’re making grilled cheese sandwiches.  But these aren’t the grilled cheese sandwiches from childhood.  No, these grilled cheese sandwiches melt chocolate, brie, and raspberries between slices of poundcake.  Yes, they’re messy…oh well!  Enjoy!
