This recipe came from a cooking class I attended. I first served it to my boyfriend on Valentine's Day, but now I make it for Christmas as well.

What You Need:

(Makes: 6 servings)

8 egg yolks

1/2 cup of sugar

1 cup of Champagne

1 cup of heavy whipping cream, whipped

1 pint of fresh raspberries

1 pint of fresh strawberries

What to Do:

STEP 1) In a heavy saucepan, beat the egg yolks and sugar with a portable mixer until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually beat in champagne. Place the saucepan over low heat. With a portable mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating over low heat until mixture reaches 160 degrees, about 5 to 6 minutes.

STEP 2) Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water; stir for 2 minutes. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate until chilled.

STEP 3) Fold in whipped cream. Spoon three-quarters of the champagne cream into stemmed glasses. Top with berries. Spoon the remaining champagne cream over berries.

STEP 4) Happy Valentine’s Day & Enjoy!
