White chocolate coeur à la crème with cranberry syrup

I actually made these for our anniversary earlier in the week, but I'd be a bad, bad blogger if I didn't make some effort to mark Valentine's Day in a culinary way.

It's Molly Wizenburg's coeur à la crème recipe (which I made for Cook the Books a couple of years ago), served with Nigella's cranberry syrup - although I reduced the amount of sugar in the syrup because I wanted to have an extra tart contrast to the rich white chocolate and cream cheese.

Very delicious - although not completely appropriate for Valentine's Day if you are an example of monogamous romance, because it makes 4-6 generous portions. So spread it out over a few days, or share one with each of your lovers, with plenty of exercise in between.

This looks great, I'm suffering through the slowest morning I have ever had at work and am focusing on 5pm with all my might. I think it will be drinks and a quick bite to eat out for us but I might start tomorrow by baking some chocolate cookies...
