One of my favourite kind of dates is watching a movie with my sweetie. I love snuggling up on the sofa with snacks and laughing along as a great movie plays and I am always on the lookout for what to watch next.
On July 18, 2014 Sony is releasing what looks to be a seriously funny movie, Sex Tape. Just watch the trailer to see what I mean! In the movie, the two main characters try to spice up their relationship by making a "romantic" video and that video somehow gets uploaded to the Cloud and gets shown to all their family and friends... I can't even imagine that happening!
Luckily the ways I keep the magic alive are a little more tame. I love packing a picnic full of my sweetie's favourite foods and taking it somewhere romantic. Or spending the weekend hiking and camping in a tiny little tent. And if we just snuggle up on the sofa with a new movie, making a Spicy Chocolate Sauce for ice cream sundaes with a movie never hurts. I always serve mine with cinnamon flavoured kiss jujubes too!
Spicy Chocolate Sauce - makes 1 cup
1/2 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon Szechwan peppers
1 star anise
1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1. Combine all ingredients, except chocolate, in a pot. Heat to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes (or longer to get the sauce even spicer).
2. Strain the Szechwan peppers, cinnamon stick, and star anise from the milk and stir chocolate into milk.
3. Pour over ice cream and enjoy! Cinnamon flavoured kiss jujubes and snuggling are optional!
