Roasted Red Pepper Crostini


Today is the second day of our Valentine's Day recipes, we really wanted to focus on romantic recipes that would make a great dinner, but would also be more special than a typical night at home. This recipe is a nice crostini appetizer with a little chocolate incorporated to give it some sweetness.

Other Valentine's Day Recipes:
Orange Chocolate Martini, cocktail 

Ingredients: 
-1 baguette, sliced into rounds and toasted
-1 jar of roasted red peppers*
-1 cup fontina cheese, cubed
-1/4 cup white wine
-Salt and pepper
-Shaved white chocolate

If you want to use fresh pepper, use about two small peppers. For instructions on roasting them, check out this blog post.

Cube the fontina cheese. 

Drain the roasted red peppers and add the fontina, roasted red peppers, white wine and seasoning into a food processor. 
Spoon onto the toasted baguette slices. 

Ready for a little something extra.

Top with a little shaved white chocolate for a hint of sweetness. 

Enjoy.

I love this recipe for several reasons. First, because it is so easy to put together. If I'm preparing a Valentine's Day dinner after class I want the appetizer to be easy so that we can snack a little and open a bottle of wine or champagne while dinner cooks. Second, look at the color of this appetizer! So gorgeous for Valentine's Day. Third, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate.

A note about the chocolate, make sure not to be heavy handed or you will end up with a very sweet appetizer course.
