Chicago-based Eli’s Cheesecake has plenty in store for its guests on and around Valentine’s Day.
The bakery’s three-day celebration kicks off on Thursday, February 13 with Eli's Decor-Date. This BYOB (beer and wine) event will have couples or foursomes decorating an I Love You Berry Much chocolate cheesecake with house-made chocolate ganache, fresh raspberries, and more. There will also be live music and a dessert flight.
From February 13-15, Eli’s pastry chefs will be hand-dipping and decorating long stem chocolate strawberries and giant personalized Valentine's Day cookies, right in front of customers. This will take place Thursday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., and Saturday from noon-3 p.m. Other themed desserts include a chocolate enrobed cheesecake with a hand-piped Happy Valentine's Day message, Eli's new Makin' Whoopie Pie Cake, by the slice, and more.
Eli’s is offering plenty of treats online, with shipping available nationwide. Among these treats are Miniature Belgian Chocolate heart-shaped cheesecakes, Eli’s Valentine's Day Dippers (a take on Eli's Holiday Dippers, these frozen slices of Eli’s Original Plain Cheesecake are placed on a stick and dipped in rich chocolate), and the I Heart Cheesecake (a rich white chocolate cheesecake topped with whole raspberries).
