  1. Pretzel Sparklers

    Hide

    Like most sparklers, these are extinguished after a short while -- with several large bites. To make two dozen, place 4 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted; remove from heat. Using a pastry brush, coat the upper third of each pretzel rod in chocolate. Cover with sprinkles; stand pretzels upright in a glass. Place in the refrigerator until firm, about 5 minutes.

  3. Heart-Shaped Appetizers

    Hide

    Dining at home this February 14? For a romantic prelude or finale to the meal, serve dried Calimyrna figs. When cut lengthwise, they look like little hearts. They're a sweet complement to cheeses, crusty breads, and salads. An added benefit: Figs are packed with nutrients, such as iron and potassium, which helps lower blood pressure.

  4. Cheese Plate Presentation

    Hide

    Transform a basic white platter (this one's from cb2.com) into a cheese board for your next party.

    For the best balance and presentation, choose cheeses with a range of appearances, flavors, and textures. We added pistachios, fruit, and fig cake.

  5. What Is Dulce de Leche?

    Hide

    The name of this caramel-like confection, from Argentina and Uruguay, loosely translates to "milk candy": In a traditional process, sugar and milk are cooked over low heat for hours, until the mixture becomes thick and golden. Make your own dulce de leche, or find it in the international aisle or a Latin-foods market. It's great spread on toast, drizzled over tropical fruit such as mango, used as a dip for apple slices, or whipped into butter and spread on cornbread.
