Valentine’s Day sweets for your sweetheart

This Valentine’s Day, make something sweet for your sweetheart with the help of three tasty desserts you can master at home plus a wonderfully romantic cake.

There’s a rich chocolate dessert, a simple spin on a classic cheesecake and a light and delicious raspberry and hazelnut shortbread recipe you can make ahead, plus a showstopper cake!

Chocolate fondue

This delicious chocolate fondue recipe is a real showstopper but can be pulled together in minutes. It tastes great with mixed berries and fresh sliced banana, as well as pieces of brownie or shortbread, too.

Mini blueberry cheesecakes


These simple no-cook mini blueberry cheesecakes can be prepped in advance and served on Valentine’s Day.  They take less than 30 minutes to prep and then simply need to be chilled overnight.

Raspberry hazelnut shortbread


These raspberry hazelnut shortbread treats are filled with whipped cream and raspberries – it’s a lighter dessert perfect if you’re cooking a large meal for Valentine’s Day. You can make the shortbread and whipped cream in advance, then simply assemble when it’s time to serve.

Berry Special Valentine’s Cake

If you just want to make a special cake for Sunday afternoon tea, then this is the recipe for you. There’s no need to buy a special cake tin to make this Berry Special Valentines’s Cake, a large Swiss roll tin or roasting tin will work fine with a homemade paper template.
