The dome shaped Chocolate Velvet Boule, filled with a smooth chocolate mousse and smothered in a magnificent chocolate glaze, is the ultimate romantic dessert. A thing of true beauty, the boule is possibly the most rich, decadent and velvety dessert in our cache of romantic desserts. An evening with our Chocolate Velvet Boule is an evening to remember. It matters little what you serve for the main course, the boule will trump all else on the dinner table. Shaped as a dome with a chocolate flower on top, it is the perfect centerpiece for the table, but be sure to enclose it in a glass cake dome, so your dinner partner is not compelled to sample the icing before the meal. The perfect size for an intimate dinner party, the five-inch boule is made to serve eight, but tonight it’s just the two of you so…
Shari’s Berries’ Chocolate Hazelnut Torte is more like a piece of art than a dessert. Domes of chocolate sit like mouantain peaks on a layer of cake laced with rum and hazelnut cream, and rolled in crunchy hazelnuts. Finished in a rich chocolate glaze, the torte is sprinkled with white and dark chocolate curls. And while we’ve got you on that little chocolaty hazelnut high, let us tell you about our decadent Three Layer Chocolate Cake. This dark beauty is a stacked three-layered chocolate cake, filled with a rich chocolate cream. The moist cake is covered in a smooth chocolate glaze and accented with a frilly chocolate border. Tall and decadent, our Three Layer Chocolate Cake gives our Chocolate Velvet Boule a run for its money on chocolatiness. Take a trip to Chocolate Land and hit every layer on the way.
The Red Velvet Cake is currently enjoying a renaissance on a grand scale, and you’ll hear no complaints from us! Often thought of as a southern American classic (perhaps in part due to its Steel Magnolias fame), the exquisite red velvet cake has been around for quite a while in other parts of North America. In the 1940’s and 1950’s, the Canadian Department store Eaton’s promoted the cake as the exclusive recipe of Lady Eaton herself and although these claims are seldom refuted, red velvet cake recipes have been found dating back into the 19th Century, well before the lovely Lady Eaton had a chance to discover the fabulous reaction of real cocoa and buttermilk that gives red velvet cake its scarlet hue.
In any case, Shari’s Berries’ own Red Velvet recipe is to die for, and makes a decadent (and oh-so romantic) dessert for you and your sweetheart. Moist and luscious red chocolate cake is swathed in rich cream cheese icing and red velvet crumb, and topped with a delicate icing rose. Bring it home for your darling, or have it delivered for a special night in.

If chocolate is the fruit of the Gods, then fruit dipped in chocolate must be the Godliest of all the desserts. Break out the fondue set and get dipping! Strawberries and cherries and marshmallows and bananas – your dipping options are infinite! No fondue set? Shari’s Berries Full Dozen Dipped Strawberry Roses are the ultimate edible gift for both guys and gals. Instead of sending roses to your love at work, send juicy red strawberries hand-dipped with fancy toppings arranged with baby's breath and fern to look like a dozen red roses in a beautifully crafted box. If you choose your timing well, chances are they’ll share them with you when they get home. And once you have discovered the joy of sending “edible roses,” why not say it with cookies too? Our Dozen Red Roses Cookie Bouquet comes with jumbo shortbread cookies decorated to look like blooming roses.
For something a little cutesier, send Shari’s Berries 10 Reasons I Love You Truffle Box and spell it out for them.

With touching phrases like, "You pick me up whenever I fall" and "You bring out the best in me," this assortment of delicious gourmet truffles is the romantic gift that will melt your true love’s heart.
Why send either flowers or chocolates, when you can send a double dose? After all, nothing says, “I love you” like overindulgence. Shari’s One Dozen Red Roses with 12 Gourmet Dipped Strawberries is the gift that keeps on giving. Order the one gift, and we’ll deliver it over two days. We’ve teamed up with ProFlowers so you can deliver twice as much romance to your sweetheart for a birthday, Valentine’s Day or “just because.” On day one, they will receive one dozen beautiful red roses, and on day two, one dozen delicious giant dipped strawberries will arrive. The first gift will be delivered on the specific day you choose and the second gift will arrive the following day. It’s up to you whether you want to be there to see your beloved’s reaction or hear about it when they thank you.
So set the table with your best china, light some candles and throw on some romantic tunes, or hire a DVD and spend a lazy Tuesday night snuggling on the couch. Just be sure you have a romantic dessert to share, because where there’s romance, there should be chocolate, strawberries, or at the very least, cake.
