LOOKING for: What to make with silicone Heart mold?

linnea56February 11, 2008

Not sure what possessed me but I picked up a red silicone heart mold at the craft store. Now I donÂt know what to make in it. It has 6 sections like a muffin tin. I guess I was thinking of surprising husband and daughter with heart-shaped muffins on ValentineÂs Day morning. Cute little pineapple upside-down cakes? I could cut the pineapple rings to fit. But IÂm thinking now that the raising of muffins or cupcakes may make whatever I put in these heart shapes kind of shapeless. Not sure if thatÂs true or not. What else could I do? I usually make some kind of fabulous dessert for ValentineÂs Day but the emphasis is on taste, not decoration or appearance.

That looks really yummy but maybe not for the mold. Oh well, it won't be the first time I've bought a white elephant.

I don't know how big your heart molds are, but last year I bought some free-standing non-stick individual heart molds. I am going to make lava cakes out of them tonight. I don't know if they will hold their shapes when I take them out of the pan, but it's worth a try.

First thing that came to my mind was

Couers A La Creme
(Cream Hearts)

6 6-inch squares of cheesecloth, moistened
1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c sifted powdered sugar
1 c whipping cream
1 recipe peach sauce or raspberry sauce (recipes follow)

Line 6 3-inch molds with cheesecloth squares, allowing cloth to overhang. In small mixer bowl, blend cheese and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, beating at high speed on mixer until light and fluffy,

In another bowl, beat whipping cream to soft peaks; fold into cheese mixture. Spoon mixture into molds. Cover and chill several hours or overnight. To serve, invert onto plate. Holding onto cheesecloth ends,lift off mold, peel off cheesecloth. Serve with Peach or Raspberry Sauce.

Serves 6

Peach Sauce: Heat 1/4 c apricot preserves until melted. Stir in 10 oz frozen peaches, thawed, well drained and chopped, and 2 T orange liqueur. Cover and chill. Makes about 1 cup of sauce

Raspberry Sauce: Heat 1/4 c currant jelly until melted. Stir in 10 oz frozen raspberries, thawed, and well drained, and 2 T dry red wine. Cover and chill. Makes about 1 cup of sauce
