10 Stunning sweet treats that will melt your heart this Valentine's Day

Tempting tidbits to delight your partner's sweet tooth.

by: Jessica Schoeman | 14 Feb 2018

When it comes to desserts, on a hot summer Valentine's, the last thing we want is to feel bloated and full.

Here's our selection of bite-sized morsels (some are portable or perfect for gifting) to satisfy any sweet craving. Brownie-points for home-made!

1. Chocolate and pecan nut marshmallowy nougat - Who knew making marshmallowy nougat was this easy? Pop these in cute organza baggies and get gifting!

2. Cucumber and gin sorbet - Served with a hint of mint for a refreshing treat that will please the palate.

3. African Amarula gilded chocolate truffles - Luxuriously dark chocolate truffles fit for a queen.

4. Chocolate fondue - A deviously social, sensual and seductive way to end a meal.

5. Salted caramel peanut butter chocolate pops - Quaint little pleasure orbs that make an exquisite gift and are just as much fun to eat.

6. Dark chocolate, peanut butter and pretzel bark - The salty pretzels combined with the crunch of the peanuts and the sweetness of the chocolate makes for an interesting and very trendy flavour combination.

7. Chocolate macarons - A fearless approach on a delicate baking favourite.

8. Candied cherries - These cute little bites are reminiscent of candy apples we had as children. This is the more grown up and gourmet version.

9. Doughnut bites with chocolate ganache - Cute, delicious, and shallow-fried to moreish perfection.

10. Boozy chocolate sticky buns - The softest buttery brioche, plump boozy raisins and lashings of brandied caramel with hits of slightly bitter dark chocolate.

What's your favourite sweet treat to share with your sweetheart?
