Individual Chocolate Melting Cakes
Top off these warm, melt-in-your mouth cakes with a swirl of caramel sauce and a scoop of ice cream.

Raspberry Fool
Serve raspberry-infused whipped cream with cookies and fresh berries for a simple yet sexy ending.

Orange Soufflé
This light, airy dessert incorporates grated orange zest and orange liqueur for a double dose of citrus.

French Toast With Raspberry Syrup
A classic brunch staple makes a playful finale to a romantic meal—especial when it’s drizzled with raspberry syrup and dusted with confectioners’ sugar.

Bittersweet Chocolate Soufflé
Nothing says “romance” like a straight-from-the oven rich chocolate soufflé.

Chocolate Bar Fondue

You can prepare the charming brownies and raspberry sauce ahead of time, so you’ll only need a few minutes to assemble the dessert.

Strawberries and Syrup
Spike simple syrup with Grand Marnier or cognac to give this easy dessert a little kick.

Chocolate Pecan Tart
Crunchy toasted pecans sprinkled on top contrast nicely with the smooth, fudge-like filling.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
These classic seductive treats can be made up to 3 days ahead.

Raspberry S'mores
A childhood favorite gets an unexpectedly adult twist with the addition of fresh raspberries.

Chocolate Pots
Rich and creamy, this chocolate mousse is a perfect ending to any romantic meal.
