From melting-middle chocolate puds to mocha truffle brownies, these decadent desserts are impossible to resist
Steady now. You might just be about to fall head over heels in love ...
Instant coffee makes these brownies more chocolately, fudgy and intense than any you're likely to have encountered before. Topped with rich ganache and a drizzle of cream, it'll be love at first sight.
Light sponge sandwiched together with whipped cream and luscious dark cherries.... Make these gâteaux individually sized by baking them in a muffin tin – perfect if you're not very good at sharing dessert!
Chocolate ice cream layered with macadamia nut caramel and finished with a sprinkle of coconut flakes... As hard as it is, don't be tempted to eat your caramel from the pan – it's hot!
Fresh raspberries nestled into sumptuous curd and encased in almond pastry. Sure looks pretty.
Like you and your Valentine no doubt, red wine and dark chocolate are just meant to be together... as these heavenly cupcakes prove.
If your Valentine makes you go all wobbly at the knees, treat them to a raspberry jelly with an indulgent double cream layer.
Dip clementine segments, Deglet Nour dates, sable grapes or (everyone's favourite!) squidgy marshmallows, into warm chocolate fondue... the ultimate sharing dessert.
Now who could say you haven't made an effort, if you presented them with this? An edible masterpiece.
Made with Greek-style yogurt and cocoa powder, top this tasty loaf cake with lashings of soft cream cheese and juicy berries.
Valentine's Day or not, you must make this. Really, you must.
Oooh. Prep these puds ahead, then simply pop in the oven for 15 minutes for a guaranteed melting-middle. It won't just be the chocolate that melts!
