Ina Garten's Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake

Having published her cookbook, Cooking for Jeffrey, in which she shares her husband’s favourite recipes, Ina Garten clearly knows the old saying about food being the way to a man’s heart. During an appearance on Marlo Thomas’ web series, Garten was asked about her most romantic Valentine’s dessert. “It’s layers of chocolate chip cookies and mocha whipped cream that you just assemble the day before and put it in the refrigerator, kind of like tiramisu, it all melts together. You take it out, it’s so delicious. It’s got Kahlua and cocoa powder — it makes grown men weep.”
