Love is right around the corner! You might want to step up on your planned dinner date with complimentary drinks and foods that go well with our classic variety of chocolate and lolly arrangements.
If you need some terrific ideas that will enhance your experience with your favorite sweets, here are a few combinations that you may want to check out. They’re sure to leave you and your lover’s taste buds wanting more!
The classic juicy steak, served with red wine, is perfect with cranberry sweets. You can have your mouth exploding with flavors from a fresh cranberry sauce combined with salty ingredients such as soy sauce, enhanced with citrus, ginger, and onions.
Salad is also great to have your favorite sweet fruit like strawberry to be blended into a dressing. That much-needed sweetness combined with creamy saltiness from cheese would be perfect for someone looking for a healthy start.
Sweet and sour taste
Starting with the classic and timeless dish that many know— the sweet and sour chicken. The combination of sweetness and slight zing from vinegar and tartness from pineapple offers an all-around protein bomb of yumminess.
Sweet and spicy pairings
If you’ve got a thing for spicy foods, and you love chocolate, you can’t miss out on Mexican Chocolate. Laced with chili and cinnamon to provide heat, and bold flavors, Mexican chocolate not only makes for a perfect after dinner treat, but also a substitute to make authentic Mexican stew and dessert like Tamales.
If you’re looking for an excellent glaze for your pork tenderloin and grilled pork chops, Hot Pepper Jelly is perfect to serve warm as a sauce on the side. This spicy jelly is traditionally served as an appetizer and used on cold cuts, cheese sandwiches, and ham.
A coffee or tea for every dessert
Conventional wisdom has it that dessert and coffee are a perfect pair. The sweet components of your dessert will base the selection of your cup of joe. The more pronounced the flavor is in the finished dessert product, the more subtle you will want to go with your coffee. If you’re indulging in a decadent chocolate mousse for dessert – which pairs rather well with coffee – going with something lighter like an espresso or a steamed milk drink might be best. Sometimes the varieties of tea that you drink can make for equally great combinations. Tea is a drink that comes in various types and flavors. Regardless of which type of tea you love, chances are it goes well with desserts.
