Winter Warmer Dessert Inspiration


With daylight savings passed the colder, darker nights here. It’s time to keep warm and snuggly. Nothing says and feels like comfort like a delicious warm dessert. A hug on a plate is no doubt what your customers will be looking for after a delicious meal at your establishment.

We’ve got an amazing range of perfect feel-good desserts that your customers will love this winter. Our team have put together their top dessert serving suggestions for a selection of our favourite ‘perfect-for-winter’ desserts. Warning, you are about to be very hungry after reading this.

Chocolate Lava Cake

Our Chocolate Lava Cake could not be more perfect for colder days. It is literally designed with winter in mind! The Chocolate Lava Cake is served warm and literally is a hug in a mug. Decadent chocolate cake with a molten gooey centre. Mouth-watering stuff!


To serve, pop one of our frozen lava cakes into a suitable bowl, mug, or dish. We recommend using something that the cake fits quite snugly into. Microwave for 75 seconds, and then serve straight away. This cake will cook from the outside in, bubbling on top to give a perfect cake with a gooey centre.

We recommend serving a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, and a side of home-made berry coulis. Finish with a dusting of icing sugar and some fresh mint. It’s a dessert to remember and perfect for any chocoholic.  

Chocolate Brownie

Our Chocolate Brownie is amazingly decadent, perfect cold as a morning tea snack but truly amazing warmed and served as a dessert. Our brownie serving suggestion is to warm your portion by popping it in the microwave for 30 to 40 seconds, and serve alongside freshly whipped cream, chocolate and raspberry sauce. Simple, but certainly effective! Your brownie dessert is sure to be the stuff of legends among customers.


Chocolate Caramel Slice

We challenge you to find a more satisfying option than our Chocolate Caramel Slice. This is the ultimate indulgence. We combine two layers of dark chocolate cake sandwiched together with gooey smooth caramel, and wow, it’s an experience. Perfectly moist chocolate cake, with a generous amount of chocolate chips. Serve this alongside your coffee and tea drinks menu for those who love a sugar hit.


And there you have it. Three dessert menu options that are perfect for winter, with full serving suggestions. Why not add a new dessert to or menu, or add a monthly special to create some demand.
