August 30, 2011

If we weren’t afraid of looking greedy, we’d admit that we don’t care much for mains, that starters are quite dull and that what makes restaurant trips so toe-tinglingly exciting is the prospect of gooey chocolate and burnt sugar. So we rounded up the best desserts to give your sweet tooth the ultimate treat!

Valora’s Chocolate Fondant

As your spoon touches the soft sponge, a river of hot chocolate sauce will come pouring out – it’s so good, you’ll get goosebumps.

Ryan’s Milk Tart

Served with a cup of Milo on the side, it’s perfectly sweet and perfectly paired with clove ice cream. Heaven.

Czar’s Mint Tart

Made with dark chocolate, mint and flaky French pastry, this tart is simply unforgettable.
