Looking to treat a loved one (or yourself!) this Valentines Day? A quick and easy dessert board is just the ticket.
Whether you make a dessert board the main event, or simply an after dinner treat, there's enough variety to ensure there's something to tickle anyone's fancy.
We like to include a range of sweet delights:
- fresh fruit
- dried fruit
You could also try a quick chocolate dipping sauce, perfect for dipping strawberries and bananas into for a treat that's a little bit healthy and a little bit naughty at the same time.
Finally, if you're serving your board as a meal it's wise to add in range of savory items along side your desserts, to prevent anyone from feeling (love)sick - think nuts, pretzels, cheeses, crackers and veggie sticks.
We hope you enjoy! Please tag us on socials @ciroahome if you make a dessert board of your own - we'd love to see it.
