Berries with Champagne Cream

Remember the anticipation of Valentine's Day parties in elementary school?  I loved taking a cardboard tissue box and turning it into a beautifully decorated box soon to be filled with fun cards from my classmates!  What I wouldn't give to see some of those cards now!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Berries with Champagne Cream (from Taste of Home)

  • Ingredients

    • 8 egg yolks
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 cup Champagne
    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
    • 1 pint fresh raspberries
    • 1 pint fresh strawberries

    • In a heavy saucepan, beat 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°, about 5-6 minutes.
    • 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.

    • Fold in whipped cream. Spoon three-quarters of the Champagne cream into stemmed glasses. Top with berries. Spoon remaining Champagne cream over berries. Yield: 6 servings.


    1. That looks really good!I will have to try it sometime.

      1. It was really yummy, Audrey! But it did feel a little strange pouring that pretty champagne in a pot on the stove and not in a glass. :)
