Just Desserts Yorkshire has developed a themed cheesecake and a rocky road traybake that will be available through retail and hospitality outlets.

The Valentine’s Strawberry Dream Cheesecake is a creamy white chocolate cheesecake with a fruity strawberry centre, topped with flaked milk and dark chocolate, all on top of an dark chocolate crumb biscuit base.

The Valentine’s Rocky Road is a limited-edition version of the classic rocky road. It is a combination of biscuit, marshmallow, sultanas, and chocolate, decorated with sugared hearts, pearls and pink chocolate drizzle.

“This year we have taken two of our most popular dessert lines and created something special for Valentine’s Day,” said Kate Williams, general manager of Just Desserts Yorkshire. “Off the back of recent Christmas success, our customers can look forward to monthly NPD based around occasions and celebrations”
