A romantic dinner should always end with a romantic dessert, but which desserts should you serve to that special someone? Obviously, you wouldn’t serve something as simple as a bowl of ice cream. No, the dessert should be something special. A romantic dessert should be the end of a meal, but the beginning of a wonderful evening. The following desserts are some of the most romantic desserts you can serve to that special someone.
Romantic Dessert Ideas #1: Chocolate Fondue
There is something incredibly sexy about feeding each other. A chocolate fondue also has something for everyone, whether you like fruit, cake, or even cookies. This is also a romantic dessert that is easy to prepare. Chocolate fondue is usually made with melted chocolate and cream that have been blended together. Now you can add alcohol if you like, but you don’t have to. Before your romantic dinner begins, I suggest cutting up the fruit and cake. Then all you need to do is melt the chocolate with the cream. You don’t even need an actual fondue pot for this dessert. A heat-proof bowl placed a few inches above a votive candle works really well at keeping the chocolate melted.
Romantic Dessert Ideas #2: Strawberries and Whipped Cream
I don’t actually know why this is such a romantic dessert, but it is. Strawberries dipped in whipped cream will really put your partner into a romantic mood. Best of all, all you need to do is wipe the strawberries down with a wet paper towel and then make the whipped cream. If you don’t have time to make whipped cream, just use Cool Whip.
Romantic Dessert Ideas #3: Molten Lava Cakes
This decedent dessert is very romantic. These small chocolate cakes are cooked on the outside, but when you break them open a river of melted chocolate comes flooding out. These cakes are very symbolic of the romantic feelings that build up during a romantic dinner and then come rushing forth after the meal is complete.
Romantic Dessert Ideas #4: Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate covered strawberries are so easy to make, yet they are very romantic. All you have to do is melt some chocolate while you wipe down some fresh strawberries. Once the chocolate has melted, dip the strawberries into the chocolate and then place them on a piece of wax paper. Allow them to harden in the refrigerator while you enjoy your romantic dinner.
Romantic Dessert Ideas #5: Homemade Truffles
People are led to believe that truffles are hard to make. Fortunately, they aren’t hard to make at all. Many recipes consist of mixing melted chocolate chips with a can of sweetened condensed milk. This mixture is then cooled, shaped into balls, and rolled in powdered sugar or cocoa powder. While these are very easy to make, their decadence makes them very romantic.
